Michael Wilde became just the fourth member of the Cymru Premier’s 200-goals club when he netted for Connah’s Quay Nomads in Saturday’s 2-0 win at home to Haverfordwest County.

The 37-year-old made it 12 league goals for the season with a close range finish which sealed victory for champions Nomads, who are now six points clear at the summit.
