LLANGEFNI Town manager Chris Roberts has urged his side to put on a performance as they gear up for one of the biggest occasions in the club’s history.

The Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One leaders entertain JD Welsh Premier League side Llanelli Town in a mouth-watering JD Welsh Cup third round clash on Saturday, with a large crowd expected at their base as they go in search of a major giant-killing.

The team trained on Tuesday night to prepare further ahead of the fixture, with Roberts confident his table-toppers, who have lost just once in all competitions this season, can give the South Walians plenty of problems on the day.

Roberts, said: “This is a game we have been looking forward to since the draw was made. To draw a Welsh Premier side like Llanelli is fantastic and it gives us a chance to really test ourselves against a team from the top flight.

“Of course, we know that we will need to be at our very best if we are to get anything out of the game on Saturday. We know the threats that Llanelli pose but come Saturday we will be ready and we will give it everything we’ve got.

“I have spoken to a few people who have seen Llanelli this season and know a bit about them. I have also had someone attend a few of their games since the draw was made to get some info on them so we have a done our homework and also think we will cause them a few things to think about on Saturday.”

Roberts, who turned down the opportunity t manage at Huws Gray Alliance level this summer to stay with his home town club, said the landmark clash is a definite indication of how far Cefni have come in a relatively short space of town, and the landmark tie is one that everyone at the club and the town in general should savour.

“It will be a great occasion for the club and the town of Llangefni,” he added.

“I know the supporters will turn out in their numbers once again and get behind us, they have been outstanding ever since i came in a few years back and it’s great to see so many coming through the turnstiles on a Saturday to support us.

“The club has come a long way in the last four or five years and it’s a credit to the hard work of all the committee members, staff and players involved with the club.

“The supporters are fantastic and really get behind the team and myself and the lads can’t wait to out in a performance for them on Saturday.”
