Today's The New Saints Talking Points
The New Saints of Oswestry Town & Llansantffraid Football Club (Welsh: Clwb Pêl-droed y Seintiau Newydd), also known as the New Saints or TNS is a full-time-professional Welsh football club representing Llansantffraid-ym-Mechain in Powys, Wales and Oswestry in Shropshire, England – the two places are 8 miles (13 km) apart. They play in the Welsh Premier League, which they have won a record eleven times – including the past six seasons.
Founded in 1959 as Llansantffraid F.C., from 1997 to 2006, the club was known as Total Network Solutions F.C. after its sponsor. In 2003, it merged with Oswestry Town F.C. and three years later it adopted its current name.
TNS play at Park Hall in Oswestry after moving there in 2007 from the Recreation Ground in Llansantffraid. Park Hall accommodates 1,000 seated spectators and there are plans to upgrade the ground to 3,000 capacity in the future.Close
