Mynydd Llandegai v Llangefni Town

6.30pm  23 April 2015

Welsh Alliance, Division Two
Mynydd Llandegai 0 Llangefni Town 2 (att 75)

Mynydd Llandegai is small, scattered village a few miles from Bangor, The mountains of Snowdonia loom over the place, making the village football pitch one of the most scenic you can visit, especially on a bright and sunny evening.

Visitors Llangefni Town were in no mood to stand back and admire the view though, they were in need of all three points in an extremely tight battle for promotion from what is the fourth tier of domestic football in Wales.

They went ahead early on, and soon after thought they'd scored a second, only to discover the linesman didn't agree with them that the ball had crossed the line. No goal line technology in north Wales.

Mynydd Llandegai, encouraged by a decent turnout of villagers, battled hard and made life difficult for Llangefni. Both sides missed chances before a defensive mix up handed the visitors a second goal on 72 minutes, effectively making the game safe.

Mynydd Llandegai play on a pitch behind the village hall, in which the players change. It's a basic venue really, the pitch is railed off on both sides, and roped off at the ends, with advertising boards, dugouts and a tea bar giving a "professional" touch. But the views alone make this a ground that's well worth the journey.
