SPORTS reporter Dean Jones returns with his Huws Gray Alliance weekly award winners after another pulsating weekend of action.

Team of the Week: Airbus Broughton

You almost run out of superlatives for the Wingmakers given the start they have made to the season, and the runaway leaders made it 13 straight victories with a hard-fought success at Holywell Town.

They have showed their undoubted class throughout the majority of the campaign, but last weekend’s clash showed just how much fight they possess within the squad against Johnny Haseldin’s improving outfit.

They are destined for a return to the JD Welsh Premier League with almost half of the season gone, and if things carry on as they then the chasing pack have little chance of catching up with them.

Player of the Week: Lewis Sirrell (Denbigh Town)

Sirrell is normally more accustomed to dictating proceedings from the midfield position, but with no keeper on the bench he was forced to go between the sticks after Craig Vernon was injured with just half an hour gone during their weekend clash with fellow strugglers Holyhead Hotspur.

The former Middlesborough Academy product managed to hold his nerve and pull off a series of impressive stops, keeping a clean sheet to ensure that Town came away with an extremely important win on home soil.

Manager of the Week: Chris Williams (Ruthin Town)

What Williams continues to do with limited resources at Ruthin Town is nothing short of extraordinary, and they moved into the top six thanks to a narrow success at Penrhyncoch.

He has developed a close-knit group of players from the region who have all bought into his ethos from the outset, and this has brought with it significant rewards as Town continue to punch well above their weight in the second tier.

Man in Form: Gareth Partridge (Rhyl)

Partridge has come on a great deal of late which has coincided with the Lilywhites’ recent resurgence, and the gifted midfielder produced another performance of genuine quality during his side’s 4-1 home triumph over Guilsfield.

He has been given an increased role of responsibility by Eddie Maurice-Jones and his management team in recent weeks, something that he has thrived on and the Lilies will be hoping that this continues long into the future.

Team to Watch: Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochant

The newly promoted side have defied the odds so far and find themselves comfortably in mid-table following their excellent home win over Conwy Borough, and there would be few that would deny that Marc Griffiths is in contention for the Manager of the Year accolade if he keeps his side where they currently are in the standings.

Consistency is key and Llan have managed to get some important result when it has mattered the most, and although things can change quickly the confidence gained from the first half of the season will stand them in extremely good stead.
