Sgorio picks five players who have stood out in the Cymru Premier this week.


Oliver Byrne – Connah’s Quay

Connah’s Quay climbed to the top of the table on Tuesday night after the Nomads won their 9th consecutive game for the first time ever in the Welsh Premier League.

A brilliant goalkeeping performance by Oliver Byrne saving shots from Callum Bratley and Rob Hughes in the first half to keep the game scoreless.

Byrne also created the winning goal – his direct long kick found Michael Wilde as Connah’s Quay beat Flint 0-1 at Cae-y-Castell.

Since Oliver Byrne established himself as Connah’s Quay goalkeeper the team has not dropped a single point, keeping three clean sheets in eight appearances.


Lee Jenkins – Aberystwyth

An important week for Aberystwyth in the race to avoid the drop, with the Green and Black climbing from the bottom of the table to 10th place after picking four points from their first two games since the season resumed.

Lee Jenkins was influential throughout the week for Aber creating the opening goal and scoring the winning goal against Haverfordwest in a 2-1 victory on Tuesday night.

An important victory for the team’s confidence after a poor run of 10 games without a win.

Jenkins’s influence was also strong in the 2-2 draw at The Oval against Caernarfon on Saturday afternoon, his clearance off the line in the final seconds securing a well-deserved point for the visitors.


Jamie Veale – Aberystwyth

Another member of the Aberystwyth team claim their place in this week’s t 5-on-form, with Jamie Veale instrumental in the attack for the Green and Black against Caernarfon, scoring and assisting in the 2-2 draw.

Veale crossed the ball into Jon Owen’s path to score the opener, before scoring himself with a free kick after 96 minutes to grab a point.

After six consecutive losses, this point was a good result for Aberystwyth at The Oval.


Jordan Evans – Newtown

Jordan Evans scored twice against his former club as Newtown beat Cefn Druids 2-4 at The Rock on Tuesday night.

This is the Robins’ fourth win of the season, with the team climbing to 8th place.

Evans opened the scoring, Nick Rushton’s cross and Evans scoring past Dawid Szczepaniak in goal.

Evans scored again minutes before the break to make it 2-3 for the visitors. A move similar to the opening goal with Nick Rushton feeding Jordan Evans and his first time shot beating the goalkeeper.


Michael Wilde – Connah’s Quay

Wilde scored the winning goals against Cefn Druids and Flint as Connah’s Quay climbed to the top of the league.

The striker has been key member of Andy Morrison’s team this season scoring 11 in 14 appearances – sitting third place on the top scorers list.
