The 2020/21 Cymru Premier season has proven to be one like no other. But, with 17 games played, The New Saints sit atop the table. 

With a fierce battle at the top and the bottom of the table, we take a detailed look at the players who have made the biggest impact in a variety of domains on the field in the current campaign.

Stats powered by InStat.



The InStat Index of a player is counted in every match based on the quantitative characteristics of his actions which are specific for every position. These characteristics of his actions play the most important part in forming the Index but apart from them, it is also influenced by Match Level Coefficient (MLC) which takes into consideration the quality of actions made by his partners, opposition players and the player himself. The quality is determined for some actions in the process of analyzing the game in strict compliance with the InStat methodology.
