LLANGEFNI Town should show no fear ahead of the biggest game in the club’s recent history this weekend.

The Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One leaders welcome Llanelli Town on Saturday for a landmark JD Welsh Cup clash that shows just how far this team has come in a relatively short space of time.

This is a set-up that had to withdraw from the Welsh Alliance just a few short years ago, but they have gone from strength-to-strength in recent seasons thanks to a strong committee behind the scenes and a top young manager in Chris Roberts.

The popular figure turned down the chance to manage in the Huws Gray Alliance this summer in favour of trying to reach that level with his hometown club, and the players have really bought into his ethos to conquer all-comers this term before Llanrug United ended their 17-match unbeaten run recently.

With a game such as this on the horizon, it would be easy for the players and the management team to start looking forward, but Roberts is a great believer of taking things one game at a time and this has stood them in extremely good stead as they go in search of multiple honours this term.

This high-profile encounter has brought some well-deserved publicity Cefni’s way, and there is no reason to suspect they cannot cause their top-flight adversaries plenty of problems given their current form and what is sure to be a large and passionate crowd behind them.

It is imperative that the Cefni squad plays the game and not the occasion, which is something Roberts has undoubtedly stressed during his extensive preparations ahead of the tie this week.

The likes of Marvin Pritchard, Alan Mark Owen, Kevin Lloyd and Liam Morris will be tasked with making things happen in the final third and they must make the most of the opportunities presented to them, given that Llanelli will have the lion’s share of possession for much of the game such is the quality of platers at their disposal.

Cefni have nothing to lose so the pressure is off to a certain extent. They should play without fear of failure as getting to this stage of the competition is a fantastic achievement in itself, but this is a squad littered with winners and they will want to ensure that their fairytale run in the national trophy can go into the fourth round.

If they manage to do this then it will surely be one of, if not the best ever result the club has ever produced and would further enhance the reputation of Roberts as one of the brightest young managers anywhere in the country.

Everyone associated with the club and the town should savour the moment and the occasion as things like this do not come around in the game every week, and if they are at the top of their game and catch the South Walians on the back foot then who knows what the outcome will be.
