Sgorio select five players that have stood out over the weekend in the Cymru Premier.



Jon Rushton – Bala Town

A clean sheet for the Bala Town keeper on his first appearance for the first team this season in a 0-2 victory over Newtown at Latham Park.

Rushton was instrumental in the victory denying his brother, Nick Rushton from opening the scoring for the home side.

The keeper also prevented James Davies from scoring with a low save to his left.


Mael Davies – Pen-y-bont.

Mael Davies scored his third goal of the season for Pen-y-bont in the 0-2 win over Cefn Druids at The Rock on Saturday.

Some neat footwork and a well-placed effort from outside of the box beating the Cefn Druids keeper.

The former Swansea academy midfielder is making headlines with some fantastic long-range efforts this season, with two of his three goals coming from outside of the penalty box.

Pen-y-bont are in 5th place after losing only three of their opening nine games this season – these against Connah’s Quay, Bala Town and The New Saints.


Jamie Veale – Aberystwyth

Veale was at the centre of everything for Aberystwyth in the 2-2 draw against The New Saints on Park Avenue.

The former Merthyr Town man creating both Aber’s goals and ensuring the game finished 2-2 with a good timed tackle to prevent Louis Robles from securing the three points for the visitors.

Aber’s goals are the first The New Saints have conceded this season, with Veale assisting both.

The first, a Veale free kick headed home at the far post by Jon Falingo, the second – a well-placed defence splitting pass from his own half finding Steff Davies who scored the home sides second.

A good point for Aberystwyth against The New Saints who had a 100% record and had not conceded in seven games this season before Friday’s game.




Dylan Rees – Cardiff Met

The Cardiff Met defender scoring in his second game in a row as the Archers’ run of seven games without a win comes to an end.

Rees opened the scoring on Saturday afternoon, a low shot from 30 yards beating Aaron Jones, the Flint Town keeper to put the home side ahead.



Jack Wilson – Haverfordwest

Wilson assisted in Haverfordwest’s late equaliser in the 1-1 draw with Caernarfon at Bridge Meadow on Saturday.

Danny Williams scored the Blue Birds’ goal after some good creative work from Wilson finding Williams in space to pass the ball into an empty net.

Wilson was also unlucky not to win a penalty for the home side, with an effort seeming to come of Jamie Crowther’s arm on the visitors’ goal line.
