LLANRUG United sent shockwaves through Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One with a sensational 2-1 victory at Llangefni Town.

David Noel-Williams’ side came from a goal down to topple the previously unbeaten league leaders, and the gap is now just two points, although Cefni do have a game in hand on their title rivals.

After experienced defender Steve Kehoe spurned a good chance for the home side early on after good work from Liam Morris, Chris Roberts’ men finally gained the initiative on 23 minutes when a Matthew Jones free-kick from long range evaded everyone and found its way into the net.

A significant turning point in the contest arrived on 35 minutes when a misplaced pass from the hosts sent Gavin Lloyd-Jones through on goal, and he was brought down by Liam Ewing inside the area which resulted in a red card for the goalkeeper for preventing a clear scoring opportunity.

There was further drama as Jonathan Sadler missed the initial penalty only for the assistant referee to flag for a retake, and the midfielder held his nerve the second time around to level matters.

After the break saw the visitors impose themselves further on proceedings due to their numerical supremacy, and they took the lead for the first time in the contest on 54 minutes when an Aaron Hughes strike from long-range gave United a crucial advantage.

Chris Roberts’ side went close on a number of occasions thereafter, and United themselves were reduced to ten men in the closing stages when Llion Jones was dismissed for a second bookable offence, but Cefni’s misery was compounded when Jack Williams was carted off injured leaving them with nine men to finish their first third-tier defeat of the campaign.

Both sides face a break from league action this Saturday as they focus their attentions on the Lock Stock Cookson Cup. United are away at in-form Bodedern Athletic and Cefni travel to Llandudno Albion.
