Sgorio pick the Welsh Premier League 5-a-side team of the week.
John Danby (gap Connah’s Quay)
John Danby keeps his place between the sticks in the 5-on-form after keeping yet another clean sheet over the weekend – his 7th in 10 games this season. gap Connah’s Quay remain in 2nd place and remain unbeaten after only conceding three goals in ten games this season – the strongest defence in the league.
Steve Saunders (The New Saints)
TNS’ centre-half showed tremendous attacking ability against Aberystwyth over the weekend grabbing one goal and one assist. Saunders played a sharp one-two at the edge of the box before squaring the ball perfectly for Greg Draper to open the scoring at Latham Park. The Scotsman got on the score-sheet in the second half with a looping header from a Chris Marriott corner. Saunders was at fault for conceding a late penalty after bringing down Chris Jones in the box, but we’ll let him off for his contribution at the other end.
Lewis Buckley (Llandudno)
We might have witnessed the ‘Goal of the Season’ at the Airfield on Saturday as Lewis Buckley got the better of the Airbus keeper from the centre circle to score a memorable goal for Llandudno. Buckley’s worldie has been watched over and over on social media sites and a goal of that quality deserves to be watched over and over! Lewis Buckley… take a bow!
Dan Nardiello (Bangor City)
Dan Nardiello scored a brace for the Citizens against the boys from the capital at Nantporth to secure three-points for Bangor on Sunday. His first goal was a glancing header after doing well to get in front of his man, and the second showed a bit of class as he tricked the defender with a dummy shot, turned on to his favoured right foot and slotted the ball into the bottom corner with composure.
Aaron Bowen (Cefn Druids)
With Rhyl trailing 3-0 after a little over half an hour at Park Hall on Friday night, they thought they were repeating their nightmare at Oswestry where they lost 10-0 back in August. But the Lilywhites fought back in the second half and lost narrowly in the end in a 4-3 thriller. Aaron Bowen’s wonderful curled effort was the pick of the bunch as he scored his second goal against his former club this season.
On this day in 1956 Portsmouth took on Newcastle United in the first Football League match played under floodlights.
