Win­ners put aside sum­mer of change

Bangor Mail - - BUSINESS -

DE­SPITE a sum­mer of many changes CPD Y Fali be­gan the 2018/19 cam­paign in the best pos­si­ble way with a 4-1 thrash­ing of An­gle­sey League new boys Ce­maes Bay.

The ins-and-outs of re­cent weeks in­clude Dan Jones and Barry Row­lands switch­ing roles to man­ager and as­sis­tant re­spec­tively, as well as a name vari­a­tion and a fair few ar­rivals and de­par­tures.

But to their credit Y Fali set­tled well in their first as­sign­ment.

Man­ager Jones handed de­buts to Dan Man­ning and Guy Mabott at the back, El­liot Pat­ter­son in mid­field, plus Ian Williams and Dewi Thomas in attack.

Paul Wild­ing got his chance in goal with Jacob Reid in­jured.

Ce­maes kicked off and went on the of­fen­sive, but the hosts dealt with ev­ery­thing ef­fi­ciently. When Val­ley had the ball, they played good pass­ing foot­ball, Pat­ter­son, Paul Williams and Mike Williams con­trol­ling the mid­dle.

Ian Williams on the left, Marc Wil­son on the right and Thomas in the cen­tre linked up many times, but ini­tially could not find the break­through.

The first goal fi­nally came when Ian Williams found Paul Williams, who headed in for 1-0.

Shortly af­ter it was 1-1. Wild­ing let a cross slip and Liam Ro­driguez tapped in from close range.

It was 2-1 to Y Fali at the in­ter­val, when a cor­ner was met by Dion Evans.

Al­though his shot was saved, Ian Williams turned in the re­bound.

Man­ning had picked up an in­jury so was re­placed at the break by new signing Kieran Mur­phy at left-back.

Evans and Wil­son linked up well on the right, the for­mer of­ten over­lap­ping and caus­ing dan­ger.

The score be­came 3-1 when a loop­ing vol­ley by Paul Williams hit the bar and went in.

When a hand­ball was spot­ted in the box, Paul Williams had the chance to get his hat-trick.

His penalty was saved, but Thomas fol­lowed in for 4-1.

Y Fali were due to visit Bodor­gan Ju­niors last night (Tues­day) and travel to Llan­fair­p­wll this Satur­day.

Val­ley: Wild­ing, Evans, Mabott, A Hughes (Cham­bers 85), Man­ning (Mur­phy 46), P Williams, Pat­ter­son, M Williams, Wil­son,Thomas (Swales 80), I Williams. Sub un­used: J Hughes.
