THE New Saints have confirmed their second signing of the transfer window with Caernarfon Town’s Leo Smith being the latest to put pen to paper.

Smith has experience playing in the Welsh Premier League for both Llandudno and Caernarfon Town, as well as National League experience with Wrexham.

Manager Scott Ruscoe confirmed the club were looking to secure the signature of Smith in the January transfer window, but a move was unable to happen before the deadline.

It is a signing which Ruscoe believes will add a great amount to the side as they prepare to reclaim the JD Cymru Premier title next season.

The Saints boss said: “He’s a player we looked at in January who we wanted to bring in during that window, but we couldn’t quite get it over the line then.

“But we’ve revisited it for next season and he’ll be joining us now.

“He’s at a good age and he’s had an excellent season with Caernarfon Town, and already has league experience with Llandudno, as well as having played for Wrexham in the National League as well at a very young age.

“He’s a player who brings a lot of experience for a young person, but he will also push the other midfielders in the side on as well.”

Smith becomes the second signing of the window, joining frontman Louis Robles who Saints added to their squad last month.

And Ruscoe confirmed he has one more player in his sights before the window shuts.

He said: “Leo is another great option for our midfield – he will be used predominantly as a central midfielder.

“He’s someone who can get forward well, he’s very energetic, and has the ability to play wide as well.

“We are looking at another player, and he probably would be our last signing. If we can get three in I’ll be more than happy.”
