Sgorio picks the five Welsh Premier League stars that stood out over the past week.
Matthew Hall (Bangor City)
Bangor City secured their biggest win of the season with a 5-0 thumping of Bala Town on Friday night. It was the Citizens’ biggest league win in five years, since beating the same opponents by the same scoreline back in October 2012. But it wasn’t an easy night for Matthew Hall between the Bangor sticks as he made several impressive saves to claim his second clean sheet in a row. The 20 year old shot stopper has taken Connor Roberts’ place in the starting 11 in recent weeks, and Bangor have won the last four games with Hall in goal.
Danny Hughes (Llandudno)
Danny Hughes scored twice in Llandudno’s 1-3 away win at Prestatyn on Friday night, taking his tally to six goals this season, beating his previous best of four goals in the 2015/16 season. Iwan Williams seemed delighted to have secured his first points as Llandudno manager and he’ll want more of the same from Jaggers and his teammates in the upcoming league matches against struggling Carmarthen and Newtown.
Luke Wall (Bangor City)
Luke Wall grabbed a brace and an assist in Bangor’s comfortable win over Bala Town on Friday night. The physical left-footed winger has looked confident and lively since signing for the Citizens in the summer and has scored three goals and made three assists in the WPL this season.
Jamie Mullan (The New Saints)
With one goal and two assists against Carmarthen on Saturday, Saints’ pacey winger Jamie Mullan returns to the 5-on-form yet again. Jamie Mullan has been one of the best performers in the league this season and is currently top of the WPL assists chart (8).
Craig Hobson (Aberystwyth)
Aberystwyth climbed out of the bottom two after a solid 3-0 win at home to Newtown on Friday night. Big centre-forward Craig Hobson netted twice to claim Aberystwyth’s second home win of the season. Neville Powell will be hoping for more strong performances from the Aber no.9 as they prepare for tough games against Bala Town (Welsh Cup) and Connah’s Quay (WPL) in the coming weeks.
On this day in 1985 Phil Dwyer played his last game for Cardiff City in a 4-1 defeat against Notts County.
