Sgorio picks the five Welsh Premier League stars that stood out over the past week.
Chris Mullock (Aberystwyth)
Aberystwyth are out of the relegation zone for the first time since August after a 1-0 win against Cefn Druids on Friday. Chris Mullock kept his second clean sheet of the season as Neville Powell got his first home win as Aberystwyth’s manager.
Kyle McCarthy (Cardiff Met)
Cardiff Met gave Carmarthen a 5-0 thumping at Cyncoed on Saturday to stay within a point of the league leaders. Left-back Kyle McCarthy played a key part in the first goal, whipping a dangerous cross from the edge of the box, before scoring the second with an unstoppable free-kick.
John Owen (Aberystwyth)
John Owen made it two goals in two games as his strike earned Aber the victory on Friday, bringing Cefn Druids’ run of seven games without defeat to an end. Aber’s no.10 was a handful all night and scored the all-important goal with a well-struck left foot volley.
Dean Rittenberg (Bangor City)
Dean Rittenberg grabbed a brace at Latham Park on Saturday to end Bangor’s run of three consecutive defeats in the WPL. The striker did well to steal the ball off Newtown’s keeper to score his second goal and nick the three points in the latter stages of the game.
Kayne McLaggon (Barry Town)
Barry Town caused the biggest upset of the season as they won away against The New Saints for the first time in 16 years. It was that man, Kayne McLaggon that scored the only goal of the game as he continued his impressive form for Gavin Chesterfield’s side. As well as scoring seven 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 in the WPL this season.
On this day in 1994, Mike Smith started his second spell in charge of the Welsh national side.
