Valley Athletic v Llanfairpwll reserves

Anglesey League
Valley Athletic 1 Llanfairpwll reserves 2 (att 25)

My first taste of Anglesey league football, and it was decent introduction between two of the competition's better sides.

Valley won the league last season, but apparently have a much-changed side now, while Llanfairpwll's second string had scored 23 goals in their last two fixtures.

The visitors had plenty of chances to add a few more goals at Valley, but were let down by wayward shooting. Valley scored the first half's only goal, against the run of play, but the Llanfairpwll hit back in the second half for a deserved win.

Overall it was an entertaining, and occasionally feisty, game. I thought it a decent standard of football, and both sides looked as if they could compete at Gwynedd League level, the next step up from the Anglesey League

Valley use a pitch to the south of the village, on a piece of land sandwiched between a railway line at the A55 dual carriageway into Holyhead. There's a pair of permanent dugouts on one side, and a couple of park benches on the opposite side are handily-placed for spectators.
