Sgorio picks the five Cymru Premier players that stood over the last week.
Lewis Brass (Connah’s Quay)
In his first full season at the Deeside Stadium, Lewis Brass has performed very impressively. He kept a clean sheet on Saturday to help Connah’s Quay progress to the 4th Round of the Scottish Challenge Cup before keeping yet another clean sheet on Tuesday night vs Cefn Druids. Brass has three league clean sheets to his name after the first five matches – more than any other goalkeeper. It’s over 300 minutes since the goalkeeper last conceded a goal in all competitions.
Stuart Jones (Bala Town)
After enjoying a solid start to the season, Stuart Jones has been unlucky not to have featured in 5-on-form up until now. However, after creating Lassana Mendes’ goal and smashing in a close-range volley to secure an emphatic win for Bala at Pen-y-bont, the defender has done more than enough to feature this week. Jones now has two goals and three assists to his name in the league this season – an impressive return for the centre half!
Kristian Platt (Airbus UK)
Kristian Platt scored his first goal in the JD Cymru Premier against Aberystwyth on the weekend – and what a way to do it! His venomous free kick from distance beat Connor Roberts as Airbus finally picked up their first points of the season.
Ryan Brobbel (The New Saints)
Ryan Brobbel has been making a name for himself as a set piece specialist recently – he fired in another spectacular free kick against Newtown on Tuesday night as the Champions of Wales returned to the top of the league. He also scored last weekend against Stenhousemuir in the Scottish Challenge Cup before The New Saints were knocked out on penalties in the competition for the second season running.
Luke Bowen (Carmarthen)
Luke Bowen marked his 50th league appearance for Carmarthen in some style on Saturday – he lifted an incredible chip over Alex Lang with the outside of his boot to help secure a point for the Old Gold against Cardiff Met.
