Sgorio picks the five players that stood out over the weekend.
Paul Harrison (The New Saints)
Having captained TNS to an incredible 13th WPL title, and their 8th in a row, Paul Harrison is having some season. Harrison is also enjoying an incredible season on a personal level – he has now kept 19 clean sheets this season – the highest number of clean sheets kept by any goalkeeper since the Super Twelve was introduced! He’s kept a clean sheet in his last three league games.
Jamie Mullan (The New Saints)
After creating the last two goals at Jenner Park on Saturday, the WPL’s top creator now has 16 assists to his name – surpassing his total of 15 assists last season. His goal also meant that he has scored 10 league goals in a season for the first time in his career.
Nathan Woolfe (Connah’s Quay)
In his first game since returning to Connah’s Quay, Nathan Woolfe was hungry to impress. His stupendous hat-trick at Maes Tegid on Friday night was enough to push Connah’s Quay one step closer to securing a place in the Irn Bru Cup for next season.
Darren Thomas (Caernarfon)
What a performance from the Cofi Messi on Saturday! His excellent through ball set up Danny Brookwell for the Canaries’ first goal, and his tidy finish in the second half saw the Cofis leapfrog Newtown in the table in the race for 4th place. Should Caernarfon finish 4th, they will have the advantage of playing the 7th placed side at the Oval in the play-offs.
Madison Schupbach (Cardiff Met Ladies)
Madison Schupbach was the star player in the FAW Women’s Cup on Sunday – her fantastic brace was enough to secure an unbeaten treble for Cardiff Met ladies! Schupbach now has a total of 17 goals in 13 appearances this season.
On this day in 1924 Wales played Scotland in a British Home Championships at Ninian Park in Cardiff, in a rare occasion where both international captains were Cardiff City players
