Reds Arrange Midweek Island Visit

WITH no replay required from our FA Trophy game this weekend, manager Dean Saunders will be taking a strong line-up across to Ynys Mon to face Llangefni Town.

The friendly match will kick off at 7:30 pm on Tuesday evening.

After a season in the Welsh Premier last year, the locals are back in the Cymru Alliance, sitting second in the table, three points behind Bala Town and enjoyed a good 3-2 victory at Penrhyncoch on Saturday.

The Football Club was founded back in 1897 and were founder members of the Anglesey Football League.

It wasn't until 1988 that the club accepted promotion into the Gwynedd League and in their first season they achieved the treble, winning the League Championship along with the Eryri Shield and the Gwynedd Cup, the following season they repeated this tremendous achievement.

A year later, in 1990/91, the club accepted promotion into the Welsh Alliance League, where they won the League Championship, as well as the Barritt and Alves Cups.

They then went on to win the Barritt Cup outright after treble success in the competition up to 1992/93, they also won the Cookson Cup in 1993/94 and won the Welsh Alliance League Championship four times between 1990/91 and 1998/99, as well as being the only Anglesey club to ever have won the Welsh Intermediate Cup back in 1991/92 season.

In 1999 they gained promotion to the Cymru Alliance and in 2007 won promotion to the Welsh Premier League, but unfortunately the club was relegated back to the Cymru Alliance after just one season at the top level.

In their line-up are a number of former Wrexham players with goalkeeper Paul Whitfield the best known, while ex-trainee Dylan Owen is also back at Talwrn Road.

After crossing onto Anglesey, stay on the A55 for about another six miles and then take the Llangefni exit.

Turn right for the A5114 into Llangefni and then at a 'T' junction with the B5109 turn right for another 600 yards.

Then take a left onto the B5109 Talwrn Road and the ground is about ½ mile on the left hand side, shortly after you leave the town.
