YNYS Mon men reached the Inter-Island Games final thanks to a superb 2-1 victory over Shetland.

Campbell Harrison’s side matched the women’s achievement the previous evening to extend their perfect record in the competition, meaning that both squads from the host island of Anglesey have a chance of lifting silverware from the competition.

The home side got off to the best possible start and went ahead early on when talented youngster Sam Jones, who recently signed for JD Welsh Premier League side Caernarfon Town, produced a clinical finish to break the deadlock.

Harrison’s side had the wind in their sails throughout a fantastic first half, and they went into the break two goals to the good when Jones despatched another opportunity following a consistent spell of pressure to double their advantage just before the interval.

More than 1,500 supporters packed out the home of newly promoted FAW Tier Two Northern Championship side Llangefni Town for the clash, but the visitors came out with a renewed sense of purpose in the second period and got an early reward when Ronan Grant pounced to steer a chance past Porthmadog stopper Paul Pritchard and half the deficit.

This brought more pressure from the away side as they looked to force the game into extra time for the remaining half hour, but the Ynys Mon squad dug deep and defended superbly well to see the contest out and reach the final.

They will now take on Guernsey tomorrow night (Friday) in the final contest of what has been an exceptional competition, which Anglesey has hosted for the first time to great effect.
