PICTURE by Wynne Evans shows Bryngwran Bulls v Talysarn Celts.
NWCFA Junior Cup
Talysarn Celts 2 (Rhodri Jones & Thomas Usher)
Bryngwran Bulls 3 (Matty Roberts, Matty Reynolds & Craig Moore)
Richard Owen’s side have reached the concluding stage of the competition thanks to a 3-2 win at Gwynedd League side Talysarn Celts.
A flat first twenty minutes saw both teams nervy but Bryngwran grew in confidence and began to pile on the pressure. Just three minutes later, they found the breakthrough when Matty Roberts got on the end of a Jerome Sillence assist.
On 37mins, it was 2-0 when Matty Reynolds’ strike from the edge of the box found the bottom corner. However, celebrations were short-lived as Rhodri Jones pulled an immediate goal back for Talysarn.
In the second half, Bryngwran continued to work hard and were finally rewarded for their efforts nine minutes from time when top scorer Craig Moore chipped the ball over the keeper for 3-1 and netted his 56th goals of the season in the process.
Talysarn made it 3-2 in the dying seconds of the game through Thomas Usher but it was all too late as The Bulls held on to book a place in the final, where they will face another Gwynedd League side, Bro Goronwy, in Bethesda on May 11.
Caergybi 5 (George Hibbert, Glenn North, Ian Williams, Marcus Bell and James Ryan)
Arriva Bangor 1 (Liam Jones)
Cybi secured a top-two finish as they humbled Arriva, whose fading title hopes were officially dashed.
Dale Moffat’s side were determined from start to finish and five different goalscorers on the day (George Hibbert, Ian Williams, Marcus Bell, Glenn North and top scorer James Ryan, who bagged his 71st strike of the season), proved just how dangerous this side can be. Liam Jones bagged a consolatory goal for Arriva,
Their league games may be done and dusted now, but Cybi can still win the league should Bryngwran slip up against Cefni and Arriva. The Busmen on the other hand cannot finish lower than third, but also cannot finish any higher than second, even if they do win their final game against The Bulls.
Gwalchmai 2 (Craig Evans & Corey Sinnott)
Glantraeth 1 (No scorer received)
Gwalch continued their fine form this season by picking up an impressive win over Glantraeth. Goals coming from Craig Evans in the very first minute of the match and another from Corey Sinnott sees them into second place and keeping the pressure on leaders Menai Tigers, who do have two games in hand.
Sion Guto broke a club record as he scored SEVEN goals in one game as Llanystumdwy ran riot against bottom-of-the-table Bont. Despite only coming on in the 50th minute, Guto was unstoppable and tore the Bont defence apart. Seven goals in one game is now the record at Llanystumdwy and Guto surpasses the likes of Sion Parry (now at Porthmadog Reserves) – who previously hit six in one game in doing so.
Menai Tigers 4 (Owain Roberts 4′, Sion Hogan 14′, Own Goal 18′ & Dean Redmond 62′)
Bro Goronwy 1 (Jac Thomas 64′)
The Tigers bounced back from two embarrassing defeats of late in style to claim a huge win. Having been beaten 5-0 by them in the Junior Cup semi-finals just last week, Menai had to take revenge on Bro this time around and that’s just what they did thanks to a dominant display.
Owain Roberts put his claim in for goal of the season after just four minutes, executing a perfect volley from out on the right touch line that flew over Sweeter-Hawkes into the net, giving the hosts a dream start .
Sion Hogan’s edge of box snap shot was enough to send the ball away into the side of the net for 2-0 after 14 minutes before another directed ball into the box resulted in Menai running away with a three goal cushion. Kelvin Frazer’s arrowed delivery enough to cause confusion and see the ball directed into the visiting own net.
It was four just after the hour mark when Tigers’ top scorer Dean Redmond bagged. Immediately after, Bro got on the score sheet, the ball bouncing up and over keeper David Clarke to give Jac Thomas a free head into the back of the net for a glimmer of pride – but that was all as Menai walked away with yet another three points.
