LLANGEFNI Town manager Chris Roberts thanked everyone associated with the club as they bowed out of the JD Welsh Cup.

The Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One title hopefuls produced a spirited display before eventually falling to a 3-1 home loss to top-flight side Llandudno, bringing an end to a memorable cup run that saw them topple Llanelli Town on their way to the last 16.

Roberts, said: “I am so proud of the lads, every single squad member are a credit to the club and they gave it everything.

“To reach the last 16 of the Welsh Cup just shows how good of a squad we have and I honestly believe this run we have had in the cup will make us even stronger going forward.

“To see over 700 people at the game yesterday was unbelievable and just goes to show how far we have come in such a short space of time. I can’t thank you enough for coming and supporting the lads. We did our best and I hope you could all see the effort we put in.

“As a club I believe we are going in the right direction and giving Llangefni a football club to be proud of. I will continue to do my best for this club and try and take them as high as I can, and keep bringing young talented footballers through and give them a chance of playing for the club.”

Both sides missed good chances during a scoreless first period in treacherous conditions on Anglesey, but Tudno managed to get their noses in front after the break when George Harry fired in off the post from a corner on 65 minutes.

Things got even better for the visitors soon after when defender Kai Edwards doubled their advantage with a powerful header shortly following the restart, and they secured their spot in the last eight when midfielder Danny Hughes managed to steer the ball through the mud and over the line at the third attempt.

Credit to the home side, they kept plugging away and managed to secure a consolation for their efforts late on when Alan Mark Owen finished well.
