Players of recently crowned JD Cymru Premier champions TNS paid a visit to Easter camps across Oswestry yesterday as part of their ever-growing commitment to community engagement.

Children attending Easter camps at Meadows Primary School and St Martins Village Hall were visited by stars such as Brad Young, Ryan Brobbel, Josh Pask and Adrian Cieslewicz, who sat down to share their experience of playing sport at an elite level before fielding a variety of questions from the children.

The visit comes as part of the club’s initiative to inspire young children across the community to engage in sport of all kinds, reminding them of the importance of teamwork and dedication in achieving all of their goals.


Newly-engaged fans of The New Saints don’t have long to wait until the side’s next fixture either, with TNS facing Cardiff Met in a huge JD Welsh Cup semi-final clash at Newtown’s Latham Park ground at 5.15pm on Saturday.

TNS star Brad Young said: “It’s always so nice to come and engage with some of the young supporters across the local community. They are the future of this club, so it’s important they feel as though they’ve got a relationship with us and the club itself.”

TNS chairman Mike Harris said: “Engaging with the local community is something that is at the heart of our identity as a club.

"We’ll always do as much as we can to inspire the youth across Oswestry and beyond whilst highlighting the importance of hard work in everything you do.

"We’re hoping the visits inspire some local fans to get right behind the team during what’s set to be a huge couple of months for the club."
