Sgorio pick the Welsh Premier League 5-a-side team of the week.
Chris Mullock (Aberystwyth)
A bumper crowd of 1,168 witnessed the first ever match held on the new artificial 3G surface at Park Avenue as Aberystwyth thrashed Rhyl 4-0 on Friday night. It was Aberystwyth’s biggest crowd in 15 years and not one of them would have guessed who would be the first goalscorer on the new pitch as the Aber keeper shocked everyone with an absolutely must-see effort from his own half. The Black & Greens were awarded a free kick and Mullock ventured out of his box to take the kick and saw his opposite number off his line, and the rest is now history as we might not ever witness a goal as brilliant and bizzare on the new pitch as this first one by Chris Mullock.
Brayden Shaw (Bangor City)
The Citizens picked up a good point away at unbeaten gap Connah’s Quay on Sunday as Brayden Shaw scored his first ever goal in the WPL with a thunderous effort into the top corner from the outside of the box. It was such a good goal that Nomads manager, Andy Morrison admitted that he couldn’t help but applaud as Shaw equalised against his own side!
Ryan Brobbel (The New Saints)
Ryan Brobbel returns into the 5-on-form team after a quality performance against Llandudno on Saturday afternoon saw the play-maker claim the ‘Man of the Match’ award. Brobbel combined well with fellow creative player Alex Darlington during the game to tear open the visitor’s defence and grabbed a late, but well-deserved brace for himself as the Saints put five past Llandudno for the third consecutive time.
Charlie Corsby (Cardiff Met)
It was a long drive back up north for the Druids after going down 5-0 to the students in the capital on Sunday with Charlie Corsby scoring twice for the students. His first goal was a clever lofted effort from a corner, but his second was even better as he smashed a low strike into the bottom corner. As we reach the halfway point to the split, after a slow start to the season the Archers will be glad to find themselves up in the top half of the table.
Liam Thomas (Carmarthen)
The two sides down in the relegation zone went head to head on Sunday in what could be described as a six-pointer and it was Carmarthen that came out on top against Newtown. Lee Idzi made some fantastic saves to deny the Robins who failed to take their chances, but down the other end of the pitch, striker Liam Thomas was clinical for Carmarthen as he secured the points for the Old Gold with two good goals.
On this day in 1998 Wales played against a team from Africa for the very first time.
