Sgorio pick the Welsh Premier League 5-a-side team of the week.
John Danby (gap Connah’s Quay)
Another clean sheet for John Danby this weekend – his 9th in 15 WPL games this season. The Nomads have only lost once this season (vs TNS) conceding only nine goals in 15 league games (0.6 goals a game).
Kieran Smith (Bala Town)
Kieran Smith grabbed a brace at Maes Tegid on Friday night – his first goals in 2016, but it was worth the wait as his second was a fantastic thunderous volley. Kizza found himself free at the far post to turn in Stuart J Jones’ header for his first goal, but his second came from nowhere as he struck a tremendous effort that hit the underside of the bar before crossing the line to help Bala on their way to an impressive 4-0 win over Aberystwyth.
Henry Jones (Bangor City)
Henry Jones continues to impress for the Citizens after winning the October WPL Player of the Month award. The Swansea born youngster scored a wonderful goal at Newtown on Sunday and if he can keep his consistent fine form going he could be a candidate for the ‘WPL Player of the Year’ award come May.
Adam Roscrow (Cardiff Met)
The students’ solid striker, Adam Roscrow put Met in front against Airbus with a powerful header following good work down the left flank from Kyle McCarthy. The lead was doubled in the second half with Cardiff Met playing free-flowing football and Roscrow’s clever heel flick set up Charlie Corsby to knock in the second goal. This was the Archers’ fifth consecutive win at home, and Christian Edwards’ side have not conceded in their last four games at Cyncoed (over seven hours).
Scott Quigley (The New Saints)
After spending months on the sidelines through injury, it took only three minutes for Scott Quigley to put his stamp on the Irn Bru Cup semi final, scoring a lovely left-footed curler after he came on as a substitute in Livingston. The New Saints will now go on to the semi final of the competition, and with Scott Quigley back fit, Craig Harrison’s squad looks stronger than ever, as the Welsh champions take one step closer towards an incredible ‘quadruple’.
On this day in 1956 Portsmouth took on Newcastle United in the first Football League match played under floodlights.
