LLANGEFNI Town booked their place in the Lock Stock Cookson Cup third round with a penalty shootout success at Llandudno Albion.

Despite the eventual result it was Darren Jones’ side who went ahead after just eight minutes when a fine move saw prolific forward Dave Maddock steer into the net from close range after good work from Peter Jones.

This joy proved to be short-lived as the visitors struck back almost instantly when Liam Morris got on the end of a superb delivery from Cai Powell-Roberts for the leveller with 12 minutes on the clock.

After the break saw Cefni grab the initiative for the first-time courtesy of a brilliant free-kick from Iwan Jones, but Albion received a boost when Chris Saxon was dismissed for the away side for a second bookable offence.

Despite their numerical disadvantage, Chris Roberts’ men doubled their advantage when Kevin Lloyd unleashed a stunning drive from the half way line which found its way over the goalkeeper, but Maddock was on hand to get the hosts back into the contest midway through the half.

An additional 30 minutes was assured late on when Peter Jones hit a late leveller, and with neither side able to get a winner it was left to the spot-kicks which saw Town emerge 6-5 victors.

Also through to the next stage are Llanrug United, who secured a penalty shootout win of their own at Bodedern Athletic.

Both sides were in scintillating attacking form which produced a 4-4 scoreline after 120 minutes of play, and the visitors held their nerve to win 4-3 on penalties.

A late own goal was enough to see Nantlle Vale advance with a narrow 2-1 triumph at Greenfield, with Meilir Williams producing a clinical display that resulted in four goals for Penrhyndeudraeth in their 5-0 home victory over Llandudno Junction.
