Sgorio pick five players who have stood out over the Welsh Cup weekend.

Gareth Williams – Abertillery
Although Abertillery lost 0-3 to The Nomads, The Bluebirds’ goalkeeper was man of the match.
Several great saves to keep the game goalless until the hour mark with Williams receiving praise from The Nomads manager, Andy Morrison in his post-match interview.
A respectable score for the team from the fourth level of Welsh Football against an unbeaten Cymru Premier outfit.

Wes Baynes – Aberystwyth
A thunderous strike from outside of the box in injury time secures Aberystwyth’s place in the fourth round of the Welsh Cup.

Tom McCready – Colwyn Bay
McCready’s extra time winner against Cymru Premier side Airbus UK sends Cymru North side Colwyn Bay through to the fourth round.
Colwyn Bay are having a great season in their first foray in the Welsh football pyramid having won eight of their last ten games and through to the last 16 of the Welsh Cup.
Colwyn Bay will travel to Cae y Castell to face Flint Town in the fourth round of the cup.

Andrew Brown – Y Fflint
Another Welsh Cup upset at Cae y Castell as Cymru North side Flint Town beat third place Cymru Premier outfit, Bala Town.
The 2-0 victory over Bala Town was Flint Town’s seventh straight win and secures the club’s place in the fourth round for the first time since 2017/18.
Andrew Brown created the first for Callum Bratley before scoring the winner – a headed goal from a corner – to secure a home game in the fourth round against Colwyn Bay.

Gavin Jones – Ammanford
Gavin Jones, Ammanford’s young gun was the Star of the Match as Gruff Harrison’ side beat the Old Gold, who currently sit bottom of the Cymru Premier table, 0-4 at Richmond Park.
The 20-year old striker netted twice in 10 minutes and Sgorio pundit, Sion Meredith described his effort as ‘Daniel James-esque’.
Ammanford will welcome Caernarfon in their next match of the fourth round.
