Cymru Premier – December 2, 2020

The prolific Greg Draper bagged a hat-trick on his 150th league start as The New Saints eased to a 4-0 victory which put them six points clear at the Cymru Premier summit.

Draper moved up to 11 league goals for the season, just two behind leading marksman Chrs Venables of Bala, in a dominant display at The Rock.

Saints took an 11th minute lead from a well taken penalty by Draper. After Danny Redmond was fouled in the box, the New Zealand international stepped up and sent keeper Michael Jones the wrong way.

Draper struck again in the 28th minute.

After good work by Dean Ebbe to win the ball back in the middle, he laid it off to Draper, who took advantage of a slip by Druids’ defender Philip Mooney to smash a second goal of the night.

And just seconds before the half-time whistle, Blaine Hudson headed home a third.

There was no let up from Saints in the second-half, and on 53 minutes Draper made it a hat-trick.

After a great run to the byline by Adrian Cieslewicz, the winger set up Saints star man for a cool finish.
