Sgorio picks the five players that stood out in the WPL over the weekend.
John Danby (Connah’s Quay)
John Danby was the man of the hour for the Nomads on Saturday night as he saved twice during the penalty shoot-out to send Connah’s Quay into the Irn Bru Cup final. The Nomads are the first non-Scottish club to reach the Irn Bru Cup final.
Ryan Kershaw (Cefn Druids)
Ryan Kershaw scored a delightful chip against Aberystwyth on Friday night and also provided the assist for the third goal to secure Cefn Druids’ first win since December.
Alex Fletcher (Newtown)
After a dominant display in midfield, Alex Fletcher popped up with the winning goal for Newtown on Saturday. The Robins are the only club not to drop a single point against the Cofis this season.
Jonathan Hood (Barry Town)
TNS were on their way to the top of the table and were about to claim their 7th consecutive win. But in the 97th minute Jonathan Hood stepped up and fired a rocket of a free kick into the top corner to keep Barry Town in the race for the title.
Liam Thomas (Carmarthen)
Liam Thomas made his 200th WPL start on Friday and he marked the milestone with his first ever WPL hat-trick. The consistent striker has started the last 123 league games for the Old Gold since April 2015 – a remarkable record for an outfield player.
On this day in 1966 one of the all-time greats of Welsh football played his last international match.
