5 y pen

Sgorio’s Welsh Premier League 5-a-side team of the week.

Michael Jones (Cefn Druids)
Michael Jones returns to the 5-on-form after a great run between the sticks for the Druids saw the new-comers go three games without conceding a goal. Craig Williams’ second half penalty for Newtown on Sunday was the first goal that Jones had conceded since the opening game of the season, and he was so close to keeping the penalty out too. Jones made several great saves over the weekend as well as keeping a clean sheet against a strong Connah’s Quay side in their midweek fixture.

Gary Roberts (Bangor City)
Gary Roberts keeps his place in the team after netting three goals during the week. The Bangor right-back scored two penalties and a fantastic free-kick over the last two games to help the Citizens keep the pressure on The New Saints at the top of the table.

Chris Seargeant (The New Saints)
Chris Seargeant remains at the top of the WPL goal-scorer chart after scoring another three goals this week. The TNS midfielder should’ve had another goal but his penalty was well saved by Ryan Neild over the weekend, although Alex Darlington was on site to knock in the rebound. Seargeant has five goals in five games this season and has been vital in securing the Saints’ 100% record in the league so far this season.

Carl Lamb (Rhyl)
After the historical thumping against TNS last weekend, there were many questions raised over the standard of the Rhyl squad and backroom staff. But the Lilywhites answered their critics by winning tow games on the bounce this week to climb up into 5th place and Carl Lamb’s contribution was substantial as he scored twice on Wednesday night to claim a sweet 3-1 win over the club who let him go at the start of the season, Aberystwyth.

Jamie Reed (Bangor City)
It’s almost as if Jamie Reed never left Bangor City as he seems to have settled in instantly at Nantporth under Andy Legg. The experienced striker scored twice this week – the first a header against Newtown after a well-timed run across the front of goal, and the second a delightful lifted effort from a tight angle to beat Aberystwyth keeper, Dominic Richards.
