Sgorio picks the five stand out players from the weekend’s Welsh Cup fixtures.

Paul Harrison – The New Saints
The experienced TNS keeper is yet to concede a goal in this year’s Welsh Cup as the Cymru Premier champions beat Mold Alex 9-0 and Aberystwyth 4-0 in both their Welsh Cup ties this season.

Harrison, a five time Welsh Cup winner, was impressive on Saturday stopping a Matthew Jones spot kick and a late Geoff Kellaway chance.

The New Saints will face Newtown at Park Hall in the quarter finals

Alex Titchiner – Y Fflint
A wonderful volley helped secure Flint Town’s place in the quarter finals following Niall McGuinness’ sides 3-2 win over Colwyn Bay.

Flint will face Prestatyn, both from the Cymru North, in the quarter finals – with a Cymru North side guaranteed to make it into the semi-final.

Jordan Davies – Prestatyn
Davies powerful effort from outside of the box was the only goal of the game as Cymru North leaders beat Swansea University who top the Cymru South.

Michael Bakare – Cei Connah
Last season’s player of the season impressed again as the Nomads beat Afan Lido 8-0, with Michael Bakare scoring his first hat-trick for the club.
Connah’s Quay will face Cardiff Met at the Deeside Stadium in the next round.

Darren Thomas – Caernarfon
The Cofi Messi was Caernarfon’s man of the match as they beat Ammanford 4-0 in front of the Sgorio cameras.

Thomas scored his first goal from distance, a thunderous strike – a contender for Goal of the Month, with his second coming minutes from time to complete the victory for the visitors.

Caernarfon will face Cefn Druids at The Oval in the quarter finals.
