Sgorio picks the five Welsh Premier League stars that stood out over the past week.
John Danby (Connah’s Quay)
John Danby kept his fourth clean sheet of the season in the Nomads’ 0-1 away victory at Newtown on Saturday which keeps them only a point behind league leaders The New Saints. But it was his midweek performance against Bangor City that’s earned him a spot in the 5-on-form as he produced save after save to keep the scoreline respectable (1-0).
Chris Seargeant (The New Saints)
Chris Seargeant grabbed the first WPL hat-trick of the season as The New Saints ruined Carmarthen’s homecoming party on Saturday by thrashing them 0-5. As well as netting three times, Seargeant made a lovely assist with a well-weighted pass for Ryan Brobbel’s second-half goal. The Saints’ midfield now goes equal with Kayne McLaggon and Gary Taylor-Fletcher as the league’s top scorers (5 each).
Alec Mudimu (Cefn Druids)
Following a shock 3-0 win at home to Bala last weekend, Cefn Druids continued their fine form by beating another quality side in Llandudno (1-2) which sees Huw Griffiths’ side climb into the Top Six. Alec Mudimu scored his first ever WPL goal, and he will do well to score a better one as he beat the home keeper with a wonderful lofted volley from outside the box that looped into the top corner of the net.
Adam Roscrow (Cardiff Met)
The students remain unbeaten at Cyncoed Campus this season as they came out 2-1 winners against Prestatyn on Saturday. Adam Roscrow claimed his fourth of the season with a powerful low effort and he certainly seems to have found his scoring boots this season as Met stay within three points of table-toppers TNS.
Kayne McLaggon (Barry Town)
Barry frontman, Kayne McLaggon keeps his place in the 5-on-form for the third week running after scoring the only goal of the game at Bangor on Saturday. It was a solid defensive display from Barry, and the late winner came against the run of play, but McLaggon proves how valuable a composed striker can be as he took his chance ruthlessly to end Bangor’s 100% home record. As well as scoring five times this term, McLaggon has assisted the only other two goals his team has scored and has therefore contributed directly to 100% of Barry’s goals this season.
On this day in 2003, Wales lost 1-0 to Russia in front of 73,000 fans at the Millenium Stadium.
