Ynys Môn Ladies’ Island Games Success Is A Much

The success of Ynys Môn’s ladies football team at the 2019 Inter-Island Games served as a timely boost for the women’s game in North Wales.

In four previous tournaments, Anglesey’s females had been victorious in just one of their 14 matches, but they were a different proposition on home soil as they made it all the way to the final where only a strong Isle of Man side was able to stop them.

The 2018-19 season otherwise had few highlights for North Wales women’s football.

In the Welsh Premier League, Llandudno finished sixth, some distance off the top five, Rhyl ended up bottom and only avoided relegation because no North Wales team applied for promotion and Caernarfon Town did not last the season.

While the newly-appointed officials of the revamped North Wales Women’s League did their level best to ensure things ran smoothly after the previous season’s Rhyl Development saga, everything finished in shambolic fashion.

Still, the winners of Division One have not been crowned. The latest news is the North East Wales FA have awarded Llanfair United a 3-0 win over Kinmel Bay, who decided not to fulfill the final fixture in Powys as they wanted to end their season early.

This puts Bethel and Llanfair level on points and goal difference. Bethel have scored the most goals, but that factor does not come into being under the current league rule book, which is poised to change drastically next season.

The matter now returns to the NWWFL, who must decide on either a shared championship or some other way of settling the title battle.

In the meantime, Llanfair still have the option of appealing against the NEWFA’s 3-0 award (granted as per FIFA rules).

This farce could have been avoided if every team had been committed to finishing the season by the May 31 deadline.

Division Two was also not without its problems, Bethesda Athletic storming to the title with 10 straight wins before announcing they did not have enough players for their final two matches.

One of those games was against Wrexham, who needed to win it to clinch second place and promotion and did so by default in the end (via a 2-0 concession).

And the “icing on the cake” was one Supplementary Cup Final not being played as one of the participants could not raise a team. A cup final and one team unable to get together a side? A first for football?

Amidst the gloom, Penrhyn Bay Under-16s‘ fantastic quadruple, which included the Welsh Cup, was a real highlight for North Wales, with numerous other girls teams doing the area proud too.

So all in all, the female game in North Wales needed a lift.

There was definitely a good feeling about the squad Karen Williams chose for the six-island Anglesey-based tournament.

A nice balance of experience and youth was selected, and the tournament got off to a great start for Môn with a 3-1 win over Western Isles, Amlwch Town’s Lexi Crawley grabbing a memorable hat-trick.

Crawley entered the Games as an in-form player, having finished second highest scorer in NWWFL Division Two last season, so it was no surprise to see her shine.

Despite losing their second group game 3-2 to Hitra, Crawley and Jordanne Greenough with late goals to almost snatch a point for the hosts, Anglesey finished top of the standings on goal difference, thanks to the Western Isles perhaps unexpectedly seeing off Hitra 1-0.

The semi-final was something special for Ynys Môn as they overcame a fine Jersey outfit 1-0, Crawley with a stunning decider to make it five goals in three matches.

Based on form during the competition, the Isle of Man probably entered the final against Ynys Môn last Friday at Holyhead as marginal favourites.

Trailing 2-0 at half time, Anglesey again displayed tremendous spirit to fight back, score through 16-year-old newcomer Catrin Evans, and lose just 2-1 in the end to the Manx.

It was testament to how well Môn had done that they ended up disappointed to lose a final having never achieved any progress in the Island Games before.

Tournament top markswoman Crawley was carrying an injury going into the final and was never quite at her sharpest. Had she been 100%, who knows?

One of the key areas where Ynys Môn looked strong was defence.

They could hardly have been in better hands in the shape of veteran Wales international goalkeeper Nicky Davies, but the likes of skipper Laura Eynon, Carol Lewis, Sara Furlong and Paige Williams formed a very solid rearguard.

The experience of Cerys Gadd and Ffion Owen in the midfield really boosted the team and in attack, the outstanding Crawley benefited from the likes of exciting newcomer Catrin Evans and Ceri Slaney on the flanks, as well as the all-action contributions of Jordanne Greenough. The young substitutes also displayed plenty of promise.

While the men attracted major headlines – and rightly so – for winning their tournament, it is fair to say they were perhaps expected to fare better than the women at the Games.

As it was, the ladies so nearly matched them and can feel proud of not just what they did for the island, but for North Wales football too.

Inter Island Games Football: 100 Record Sends Determined Môn Men Into Final Four

YNYS Môn’s men team have stormed to the top of Group A and the semi-finals of the Huws Gray 2019 Inter Island Games football tournament with a 100% record.

Campbell Harrison’s side, made up of players from clubs like Porthmadog, Conwy Borough, Holyhead Hotspur and Bodedern Athletic, have placed themselves as one of the favourites to win the competition after enjoying a fine start.

On matchday one on Sunday, they found themselves 1-0 down to the Western Isles at Holyhead Hotspur’s New Stadium after Robert Shirkie fired the visitors in front just before half time.

However, a spirited fightback in the second 45 brought goals from Hotspur’s own Mel McGinness and Llangefni winger Liam Morris and saw the Môn men turn the tie on its head to claim a 2-1 win.

Matchday two a day later proved to be a little more straightforward for the Men’s team as they beat Orkney 3-1.

The home side took the lead on 18 minutes after some great work from Gari Owen allowed midfielder Jay Gibbs in to fire home from close range.

Soon after, McGinness made it two goals in as many matches when he found himself in behind the Orkney defence to score with a well-taken shot. Liam Delday gave Orkney hope when he found the back of the net just before half time.

Ynys Môn regrouped at the interval but had to work hard to find that third and decisive goal. Substitute John Littlemore went closest, firing just over the bar after finding space in behind the defence.

The final nail in the coffin arrived on 85 minutes, when Sam Jones, who has recently signed for Caernarfon Town, bagged from the penalty spot after Jay Gibbs was brought down in the box.

It was the final group game that seemed to highlight just how good this Môn team is however.

Coming up against group favourites Jersey in front of a bumper crowd of 1,126 at Llangefni’s Bob Cae Parry ground, Harrison’s men held out for a famous 1-0 victory.

Liam Morris’ second goal of the tournament after just eight minutes proved to be the decisive moment as the men put in a real shift to come away with three points and a clean sheet intact.

The result also controversially put Jersey out of the tournament. Having been placed in the competition’s only group of four, their 7-0 victory over bottom side Western Isles was omitted from calculations to determine the best-placed runner-up, in accordance with Fifa rules.

As a result, the Ynys Môn men side now face the Shetland Isles at Cae Bob Parry on Thursday (7.30pm), knowing that progressing will guarantee them a gold or silver medal in the final, where they would meet Isle of Man or Guernsey.

The last time Môn won a silver medal was back in 2001 at the Isle of Man and a gold last came 20 years ago in Gotland.

Speaking ahead of his side’s semi-final clash, forward John Littlemore (below) said: “This is my third time representing Môn, as I was also selected for Jersey 2015 and Gotland 2017 but this is definitely the best squad I’ve been involved with.

“We have a good mix of youth and experienced players who will all fight endlessly for the badge on the shirt and for one another too.

“The support for the team has been phenomenal so far so if we can get a massive crowd there again tomorrow night and get behind the boys it would make a massive difference. We want to keep doing the island and Wales proud so let’s get ourselves into the final.”

Fellow team-mate and joint top scorer Mel McGinness added: “It’s been hard going but it’s all worth it, especially after we managed to make the semi final stage for the first time in 20 years.

Can Ynys Môn Create Some Magic? Inter

What chances of a medal for the men’s and women’s teams representing Ynys Môn in the 2019 Inter-Island Games?

The first balls will be kicked in the week-long tournament today, with Anglesey’s women and men taking on the Western Isles at Holyhead Hotspur’s New Stadium, kick-offs 1.30pm and 5pm respectively.

The men will be looking to repeat their success of 1999, when they won the International Island Games football competition for the only time.

Ynys Môn men

Ten teams will battle it out in the men’s competition and looking at the quality of the Anglesey squad, it is hard to see them not being in contention for a medal.

Current champions Isle of Man, plus three-time tournament winners Jersey and Guernsey could prove a threat, but Campbell Harrison and Iwan Williams have selected a good mixture of experience and youth in a 20-man squad.

Captain and goalkeeper Paul Pritchard is coming off the back of a tremendous debut season with Porthmadog, while five members of Welsh Alliance champions Llangefni Town will bring a winning mentality to the camp.

Excitement surrounds the potential of lively youngsters Alex Boss and Sam Jones.

The absence of injured Danny Brookwell, such a star in Caernarfon Town’s comeback campaign in the Welsh Premier, is a blow, but there is plenty of talent in a squad capable of reaching the semi-finals at least.

Ynys Môn women

Unlike the men. Anglesey’s women have never pulled up any trees at the Island Games.

In four tournaments entered, they have won just one match and lost the other 13.

In Wales international Nicky Davies, they surely possess the best keeper in the tournament, while the likes of Jordanne Greenough, Charlotte Gill and Emma Roberts all play football at a decent level.

Perhaps the most exciting aspect of the squad is the youth on show, with 16-year-old Catrin Evans, who scored 18 goals in 12 games for Bethel in North Wales Division One this season, one to watch.

Anglesey faced their opening opponents, Western Isles, in the 2017 Island Games and were beaten 4-1.
