Newtown Preview

The New Saints will take on Newtown on Saturday the 25th of October.

The Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League fixture will take place at Newtown’s Latham Park.

Nicknamed ‘The Robins’, Newtown were founded in 1875 and are managed by Chris Hughes.

The last encounter between the sides took place last month when a spirited Newtown denied TNS another victory and left Park Hall Stadium with a point after Shane Sutton’s early goal had been cancelled out by Aeron Edwards.

The Saints last visited Latham Park on Boxing Day, 2013 and lost one nil but despite the loss, Craig Harrison’s Saints successfully retained their third title on the spin.

Retaining the title is once again the main target this year and TNS currently find themselves seven points clear of rivals Airbus UK in the Welsh Premier League.

Newtown currently sit in sixth position and have scored an impressive 23 goals in their ten league games thus far.

The match will kick off at 14:30pm.
