Reports from North East Wales football – June 19

Mike Latham’s signing-on graphic when he joined Cefn Albion

Cefn Albion enjoyed a Saturday double with 2-1 away wins for the first team and reserves respectively.

The firsts travelled to Rhydymwyn and went behind to a goal which the visitors felt should have been flagged offside.

Despite the Albion not being at their free-flowing best in the first half they eventually pulled level through Alex Williams.

Albion were much improved in the second half and the winning goal was delivered via a moment of magic from Mike Latham, who managed to unlock a very well-organised and resolute Rhyd defence.

The reserves started their match at Coedpoeth United Reserves on the front foot and created some really good chances.

Despite hitting the woodwork three times, a defensive mistake from Cefn allowed Coedpoeth to grab a half-time lead.

After the break, the game continued in the same vein with the young Cefners in the ascendancy.

A well-worked corner led to the Albion equaliser through Tyler Wilkinson.

Five minutes from time, Leighton Kendrick netted to secure the team and manager Liam Partyn their first pre-season win.
