Fly­ing start to sea­son for an on-form Cefni

Bangor Mail - - SPORT - Foot­ball: Welsh Al­liance

LLANGEFNI Town could not have faced a harder start to the sea­son, yet have emerged with fly­ing colours.

The Welsh Al­liance Di­vi­sion One club’s lat­est suc­cess was a 3-2 vic­tory at im­pres­sive new boys Prestatyn Sports last Satur­day, achieved with goals from Kevin Lloyd (2) and Dan Thomas.

Prior to that, Chris Roberts’ men won away at Bod­ed­ern Ath­letic, Llan­dudno Al­bion and Llan­rug United, as well as pick­ing up a 0-0 draw at Llan­beris.

Had it not been for a phe­nom­e­nal start by sur­prise pack­ages Nantlle Vale – five straight wins un­der their belt – sec­ond-placed Cefni would be top of the tree.

This Satur­day brings a first home match of the sea­son for Town when Llandyrnog United visit Tal­wrn Road.

Bod­ed­ern Ath­letic may have suf­fered a first de­feat in mid­week when Llangefni tri­umphed 2-0 at Cae Tŷ Cris­tion, Liam Mor­ris and Dan Thomas with the goals, but Ricky Wil­liams’ pro­moted out­fit cer­tainly bounced back last Satur­day with a 6-1 home can­ing of Llan­beris.

Eric Leach (3), Steven Whit­taker (2) and Ryan Jones shared the goals for third-placed Ath­letic.

Mynydd Llan­de­gai grabbed a 1-1 draw at Green­field, Jamie Whit­more equal­is­ing.

Pre­vi­ously win­less Gaer­wen caused Di­vi­sion Two’s shock of the sea­son so far when they tri­umphed 4-2 at lead­ers Glan Conwy, Gethin Davies, Dy­lan Wil­liams, Con­nor Gor­don and Phil McGrath net­ting for the An­gle­sey heroes.

Joe Dono­van and Marc Thomas were Holy­head Town’s marks­men against Llan­nefydd in a 2-0 tri­umph. Rob Jones de­liv­ered a dou­ble as Llan­ner­chymedd pipped Mochdre Sports 2-1.

Nathan Moore (3) and Richard Roberts led Aberf­fraw to a 4-1 tri­umph over Meli­den, and it fin­ished 4-0 for Blae­nau Am­a­teurs against Aml­wch Town, who were in­volved in their first game of the sea­son.

A 95th-minute equaliser sal­vaged Pen­maen­mawr Phoenix a point from a 2-2 draw with Pen­traeth, St­ef­fan Tay­lor with a dou­ble for the vis­i­tors.
