THREE influential squad members at Llangefni Town have all departed the club to remain in Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One.

Alan Mark Owen, Marvin Pritchard and Kevin Lloyd played a huge role in Cefni’s title triumph and subsequent promotion to FAW Tier 2 North League last term, but they have all now decided to leave and join Llanrug United.

The move comes as a blow to manager Chris Roberts, especially in the final third of the field as he looks to establish his side as a force in the ultra-competitive second tier throughout the upcoming campaign.

Owen joined Town from United last summer and proved to be a real difference-maker for the side, aiding his side cause with numerous important goals during what was a standout individual contribution from the physical front man.

Also opting for a United return is Lloyd, who made the same switch in August and was another key component in their championship triumph.

Lloyd has represented a number of high-profile clubs throughout his career, and the former Caernarfon Town man is sure to provide another exceptional boost to an ambitious United side this season.

Rounding off the departures is Pritchard, who is another prestigious talent on his day and represents another coup for the third-tier side.

Roberts will now be tasked with replacing some key names at the business end of the field in the coming weeks, with prolific forward Liam Morris also set for a large role after a superb recent spell with the club and the gold-medal winning Ynys Mon Inter-Island Games squad.
