Bulls and Tigers become league champions

Two Anglesey football clubs have clinched the fifth and sixth tier league championships in north west Wales.

Menai Bridge Tigers wrapped up the Gwynedd League title with a game to spare as they ran out 4-0 winners at home to Glantraeth. Top scorer Dean Redmond scored a brace after the break – with Kev Roberts and Callum Hughes ensuring the Tigers could start their celebrations early.

Sean Brett’s men could yet go onto make it a treble, having reached their third final of the season – the Safeflue Shield – following a 5-2 win over Waunfawr last Saturday. They’ll play either Glantraeth or Llynstumdwy.

The Tigers’ next game is the Meditel Cup final against Bro Goronwy on Saturday (4th May) at Bethesda Athletic (2pm ko), followed by their last league fixture against runners-up Gwalchmai next Monday night.

After so narrowly missing out on the Anglesey League trophy last season, Bryngwran Bulls ensured there was no repeat of their heartbreak this time around.

A 3-0 victory over Arriva Bangor ensured Richard Owen’s side were crowned league champions, just a point ahead of gallant runners-up Caergybi.

Craig Moore, Gwynfor Owen and Matty Roberts all scored before half time against last season’s champions to cap off a league and cup double.

The Elias Cup winners return to action on Friday night when they face Caergybi (Megan Cup winners) to decide the fate of the Lucas Oil Cup at Llangefni Town (7pm ko).

Meanwhile, Cae Bob Parry plays host tonight to the Anglesey derby which will settle an enthralling title race in the Lock Stock Welsh Alliance.

Llangefni Town start as overwhelming favourites over Bodedern Athletic to clinch the Division One title – as they set their sights on promotion to the new FAW Championship next season.

Having endured mixed form during the hectic season run-in, Bodedern – who reached the semi finals of this season’s FAW Trophy – face more than just an uphill task to cause one last twist in the story. They must beat Cefni by seven clear goals to spoil the party and clinch the title on goal difference.

The hosts have a less daunting task of needing just one point – or losing by six goals or less – to finally clinch the Division One title that has narrowly eluded manager Chris Roberts over the past four years.

Cefni are also on course for their own treble – after winning the Cookson Cup in March, their final game of the season will see them face Llanrwst United in the Mawddach Cup final on Saturday 11th May at Conwy (2pm kick off).

The other game on the final night of the Division One campaign sees Llanrug United entertain Nantlle Vale in a local derby at Eithin Duon (6.30pm kick off)
