North Wales Coast West League reports – January 22, 2022


Bodedern Athletic 4 CPD Aberffraw 0

A four-goal victory without prolific pair Marc Evans and Asa Thomas appearing on the scoresheet?

You’d better believe it. Further proof that Bodedern are far more than a two-man team with players throughout the side capable of finding the net.

Athletic have now won 16 out of 16 in the North Wales Coast West Premier Division and lead the table by eight points.

Boded manager Ricky Williams could not been happier with the result.

He said: “I was delighted with the win today. Playing Aberffraw over the years has always been tricky and today was no different for the first 45 minutes.”

The hosts were not at their best in the first half, but went in at 1-0 up at the break.

Sam Gregson scored in the 13th minute, finishing from a Declan Jones through ball.

Ten minutes into the second half the lead was doubled as Jordie Murphy curled in a beauty to the far corner.

Bodedern were now on top and three minutes later Gregson converted from close range.

Goal number four came after 72 minutes when Declan Jones headed home from a Joe Caven corner.

For once, neither Evans or Thomas – 78 goals between them in all competitions this season – found the net.

Ricky added: “Overall a pleasing three points and we now look forward to hosting Llanberis next week.”

Amlwch Town 1 CPD Penrhyndeudraeth 6

Kevin Lloyd was a four-goal star as Penrhyndeudraeth dished out six of the best at Lon Bach.

Cai Henshaw and Bradley Williams were also on target for the visitors, Dan Jones replying with a penalty for the Anglesey side.

Glantraeth 3 Llanrug United 2

Connor Gordon grabbed a second-half winner for a Glantraeth side which had led 2-0 in the first half before being pegged back to two-apiece.

Tudur Williams and Gordon both struck in the opening 10 minutes for the hosts before Jonathan Sadler and Matthew Roberts brought Llanrug level.

Gordon notched the decider on 58 minutes.

Gwalchmai 2 CPD Mynydd Llandegai 4

Quite an exciting encounter at Maes Meurig with five goals arriving in the first half.

Connor Owen struck twice for Gwalchmai, but Osian Jones and Damien Smith made it all-square before David Hayes put Llandegai ahead before the break.

In the second half, Jones had a chance of a hat-trick for the home side, but Marc Wyn Jones saved his penalty.

An own goal made it 4-2 and that is how it stayed.

CPD Nefyn United 4 CPD Gaerwen 1

Tristan Parry, Llyr Williams and Ifan Jones (2) supplied the goals which delivered the points for Nefyn, Meurig Evans responding with a consolation penalty.

CPD Pentraeth 1 CPD Llanberis 4

Goals from Gwyn Jones, Peter Mansoor and Aeron Pritchard ensured Llanberis held a commanding 3-0 interval lead at Lon Groes.

Kane Roberts converted a penalty for Gaerwen on 66 minutes, but a Huw Barwick spot-kick for the Darans after 80 sealed an away win.


Caergybi 0 CPD Llannerchymedd 1

Tom Kelly marked his return to Llannerchymedd by coming on as a 77th minute substitute and grabbing the late winner which sank Caergybi at Millbank.

Kelly, who is back at Tan Parc after a short spell at Llangefni Town, notched the 87th minute decider in a hard-fought all-island Division One tussle.

Knowing he faces a lot of competition for a place in the match-day squad, Kelly has certainly made manager Meirion Grieves’ selection plans a lot harder.

Llan felt aggrieved in the first half as a penalty shout was turned down when Gwion Thomas appeared to be clattered by home keeper Dan Williams. A Chris Bennett miscue and another effort wide by Dan Thomas saw the half finish 0-0.

The second half started as feistily as the end of the first, with Cybi player Mike Edwards dismissed for dissent on 56 minutes.

The 10-man hosts immediately upped a gear, attacking hard but unable to penetrate Llannerchymedd’s sturdy defence.

Kelly came on with 13 minutes left and straight away fired a shot on target.

His moment came as a Llion Jones cross was headed on target by Gethin Davies, forcing a reflex save by Dan Williams. The keeper made another cracking instinctive stop from a Deion Evans shot before Kelly slotted home the eventual match-winner three minutes from time.

Llan assistant-manager Iwan Williams commented: “You know when you play in Holyhead you’re in for a tough match and it certainly was a tough one.

“To be honest it could have gone either way towards the end. Even though Caergybi were down to 10 men they showed a lot of character to attack and create chances.”

CPD Cefni 1 Bethesda Athletic 5

Leaders Bethesda made it five league wins in a row with a clinical performance at Isgraig.

Phillip Davies gave Cefni a 10th minute lead, but Scott Hughes soon equalised and it remained 1-1 up to half time.

Scott Hughes struck again for Pesda soon after the break, then Daniel Hughes, Kyle Hartleb and Osian Hughes made it 5-1 before the hosts’ misery was made complete when Marc Parry was sent off.

Cemaes Bay 4 Waunfawr 1

Matty Reynolds, Geraint Jones, Sam Wiltshire and Sol Williams were all on the mark in third-place Cemaes’ Friday night success over Waunfawr at School Lane.

Meurig Parry notched a late reply for the Beganifs.

Talysarn Celts 8 Bethesda Rovers 0

Luke Baum was a hat-trick star in a resounding win for Talysarn.

Baum’s first-half treble included a penalty, other home goals coming from Glyn Hughes-Thomas (2), Peter Bridges, Daniel Tindall and David Aaron Jones.

CPD Y Fali 2 Llanystumdwy 4

Llanystumdwy’s triumph at Y Fali meant all the top five sides in Division One won this weekend.

Owen Pritchard, Mark Godfrey, Gruffudd Sion and substitute Tomos Williams bagged the away goals, Luke Miles getting both for the home team.

Bontnewydd 2 Bodorgan 1

Cai Wyn Edwards and Sean McGrath’s added-time winner clinched the spoils for Bont, Steven Jones’ goal almost earning Bodorgan a point.

Llangoed & District 1 CPD Mountain Rangers 2

Rangers scored on 10 minutes when Aled Wyn Rice netted from a cross for his ninth goal of the season.

The visitors were pleased to see Stuart Cooke back in action after a few weeks out with a knee injury.

Cooke made a big impact in the 40th minute with a contender for goal of the season, when he outwitted the defender to gain a yard, then placed a lofted chip from 30 yards over the keeper and just under the crossbar.

Llion Roberts pocketed a late consolation for the hosts.
