5 y pen-1

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

Connor Roberts (Bangor City)
Bangor lost 1-2 to champions TNS on Saturday night, but home keeper Connor Roberts won the ‘Man of the Match’ award following a fine display at Nantporth. The Citizens’ no.1 made two tremendous stops to deny Alex Darlington from finding the top corner in the first half and reacted well to dive low to his left to get a hand to a Steve Saunders header after the interval. There wasn’t much Roberts could’ve done about The New Saints’ two deflected goals.

Lewis Harling (Carmarthen)
Super sub Lewis Harling’s late goal was enough to secure all three points for Mark Aizlewood’s side at the Corbett Sports Stadium on Saturday. Harling has been out of the squad since his injury in the game against Bangor on 17 September and the influential midfielder’s return will be a big boost for the Old Gold’s push for the Top Six.

Lewis Short (gap Connah’s Quay)
The Nomads scored three times at Park Avenue to end Aberystwyth’s unbeaten run on the new 3G surface. All three away goals came from the left flank with Lewis Short involved in the build up on every occasion, creating space for Woolfe to cross with a strong run for the first, lofted the ball into the box for the second and produced a long throw that led to the third.

Neil Mitchell (Newtown)
Newtown’s disappointing run of 11 league games without a win finally came to an end on Saturday in 0-2 away win at the Airfield. Neil Mitchell scored the opener and won the penalty to double the Robins’ lead late in the second half. Newtown are now one point behind Airbus in the relegation zone.

John Owen (Llandudno)
Llandudno have struggled to score this season with only seven goals in 13 games before the weekend. But the Seasiders struck three times at the Rock on Friday night with John Owen grabbing the second with a clinical left foot effort following a slick move from Llandudno. Owen was a constant threat for Llandudno as he glided effortless past the Druids defence on several occasions and forcing a couple of fine saves from home keeper Daniel Lloyd.
