Sgorio picks the five players that stood out in the Welsh Premier League over the weekend.
Carl Jones (Prestatyn)
Prestatyn might be relegated, and might have lost again this weekend, but the keeper put in a good performance for the home side. Jones saved a late penalty by Declan Walker, and Prestatyn will feel aggrieved not to have come away with a point following the controversial goal scored by Aberystwyth.
Luke Bowen (Carmarthen)
Carmarthen beat Llandudno at Richmond Park for the first time ever to keep a glimmer of hope of avoiding relegation. Bowen headed in the opener in the first minute of the match and won the penalty that led to the winner for the Old Gold to set up a six-pointer against fellow strugglers Aberystwyth next Friday.
Callum Morris (Connah’s Quay)
Connah’s Quay took a big step to securing European qualification by beating Bangor City 1-0 at Deeside on Saturday. Ex-Citizen, Callum Morris netted the only goal of the game as he showed good anticipation and desire to be first to the ball in the six yard box and put Nomads three points clear in the race for 2nd spot.
James Davies (Cefn Druids)
The Druids climbed above their opponents, Cardiff Met into 5th place following an impressive 3-1 win at the Rock. James Davies scored once and made one assist to give Huw Griffiths’ side a psychological advantage, as well as a possible home advantage over the students as we head into the play-offs.
Dean Ebbe (The New Saints)
TNS were back to their best on Friday as they eased past Bala Town at Maes Tegid (1-4). Dean Ebbe was highly influential for the visitors and looked to stroll through the game in third gear, creating three goals for his fellow teammates. The Saints’ third goal was a thing of beauty as they worked the ball on the deck with Ebbe conducting the move from the back to the front before squaring unselfishly to Kauber who knocked it into an empty net.
On this day in 1961 one of the legends of Welsh football - Ian Rush - was born.
