LLANERCHYMEDD stretched their lead at the top of the North Wales Coast West Division One table to 7 points with their latest victory.

On Wednesday evening, Meirion Grieves’ Medd side beat Caergybi 5-2 at home.

Goals from Ethan Jones (5’), Llion Vaughan (14’) and Gavin Sharpe (30’) put the hosts well and truly in control of the tie at half time.

Cybi struck first through a Myles Jones free kick in the second half but Medd top scorer Gwion Thomas made it 4-1 just 5 minutes after that (55’).

Owain Griffiths then pulled another goal back for the visitors thanks to a Jake Chapman assist on 78mins before Vaughan struck again with five minutes left on the clock for 5-2.

On Thursday evening, it was a six-goal thriller at Cae Mwd as Cefni came from 3-0 down to draw 3-3 away at Y Fali.

The hosts were off to a flier when promising young talent Cai Miller, 18, bagged his 4th goal of the season just 3 minutes in.

Dan Manning then made it two on 16mins to give Y Fali a comfortable lead at the break.

It was 3-0 just three minutes into the second half when club stalwart Marc Wilson scored his first goal since returning to the club from Gaerwen.

However, a red card to Morgan Rowlands on the hour mark would begin to turn the tie on its head for Cefni – firstly through a penalty scored by Nathan Lewis as a result of that dismissal.

Nathan Lewis has long been a great goalscorer for Cefni since the club formed in 2018.

Lewis then popped up again 10 minutes later before Hugh Alan Jones completed a fantastic turnaround on 80mins.

A brilliant game for the neutral between two clubs who sit 13th (Cefni) and 15th (Y Fali) in the tier 5 table.
