Sgorio picks the five players that stood out in the Welsh Premier League over the weekend.

Matthew Hall (Bangor City)
Bangor climbed up to 3rd to go level on points with Connah’s Quay following their 1-0 win over the Nomads on Friday night. It was the Citizens’ third league win, and their third clean sheet against the Nomads this season.

Alec Mudimu (Cefn Druids)
Midfielder Alec Mudimu grabbed a brace for the Druids on Saturday as they beat Cardiff Met for the first time in their history. Mudimu is now Druids’ joint top scorer in the WPL this season with 5 goals.

Ryan Newman (Barry Town)
After a long spell out injured, Ryan Newman was the starman for Barry as they beat Newtown to climb up into 7th place. Attacking midfielder Newman scored a wonderful goal in the first half and Gavin Chesterfield’s side will be determined to hang on to that play-off spot as they have a game in hand on their challengers.

Toby Jones (Llandudno)
Toby Jones’ contribution was vital in Llandudno’s 3-2 win over Carmarthen over the weekend. It was the pacey winger’s gifted left foot that led to all three of Llandudno’s goals with great deliveries from set plays and open play.

Damien Ketley (Prestatyn)
Prestatyn claimed their first point in the WPL since November with a 1-1 draw at Aberystwyth, bringing their run of nine consecutive defeats to an end. Ketley grabbed his first ever WPL goal on Friday night at Park Avenue where Aberystwyth had won five of their last six fixtures.
