Llangefni Rugby Football Club is a Welsh rugby union team from the village of Llangefni, on the island of Anglesey, North Wales. They presently play in the Welsh Rugby Union, Division Four North League and are a feeder club for the Llanelli Scarlets.

History
The club was formed in February 1972 through the efforts of Trefor Jones and Vernon Gwyr. Home games were played at the local comprehensive school and training sessions were held in the school gymnasium.

Over the next few seasons the club expanded and made their first trip to Scotland to play Rosyth Civil Service in February 1973.

By the season 1973-74, the club were fielding two sides. The 1974-75 season shows progress being made with the club Winning 17 and drawing once out of 23 games. The Gwynedd League and Gwynedd Cup were both won.

Several "clubhouses" and fields were used over the years until 1999 when a brand new clubhouse was opened by Wales hooker Robin McBryde.

The formation of a youth team in 1988 became a turning point for the club. Almost all today's players being former youth players.

WRU senior status was achieved in 2003. The club continues to plan ahead with Lottery money being used for field improvements and sought for the erection of "playing" floodlights in the hope of raising the profile of the club with the attraction of representative games.

2006/07 Season
Llangefni RFC finished second in the WRU Division Three West league in the 2006-07 season, but found themselves demoted to WRU Division Four North, rather than promoted to Division Two West. This was due to a restructuring of the leagues by the Welsh Rugby Union. Llangefni challenged the ruling, but were unsuccessful in their action.

Club Badge
