Sgorio picks the five Welsh Premier League players that stood out over the weekend.
Terry McCormick (Aberystwyth)
Aberystwyth’s hopes of landing a play-off spot are still alive thanks to Terry McCormick’s exceptional performances. Despite nearing his 36th birthday, McCormick’s fantastic saves have been the backbone of Aber’s recent league form.
Ryan Brobbel (The New Saints)
Ryan Brobbel is unstoppable at the moment – his brace against Bala on Saturday sent the Saints back to the top of the league. His goals also meant that he now has 10 goals in his last 10 league games! How significant will his involvement be in the last leg of the title race?
Michael Bakare (Connah’s Quay)
Unfortunately for Connah’s Quay, Michael Bakare was unable to save the Nomads’ hopes of becoming the first ever side outside of Scotland to win the Irn Bru Cup. However, his sublime strike will be another fine addition to his growing collection of belters this season. The forward has also played a big part in putting the Welsh Premier League on the map following his performances in the competition.
Momodou Touray (Barry Town)
Caernarfon’s defence will be glad to see the back of Mo Touray after he tore them to shreds at Jenner Park on Saturday. One defender in particular who couldn’t deal with Touray was Joe Williams – he was sent off for fouling the striker in the second half. Touray scored twice and assisted Kayne McLaggon’s goal in the 1st minute to secure Barry’s first win in the league since the split.
Jack Kenny (Cefn Druids)
It was Jack Kenny’s scintillating performance that separated Druids and Llanelli on Saturday. His brace secured Druids’ place in the league for next season as well as a first win on Stebonheath Park for the Ancients since 2004! His only regret will be that he didn’t score a hat-trick!
On this day in 1992, Wales were beaten 5-1 in the opening game of their 1994 World Cup qualifying campaign.
