Academy Trials

The New Saints academy are calling for talented footballers to come to their trials later this month.

Fifteen year-old Tomos Williams from Newtown joined the TNS academy in the summer of 2015 and since then has made a big impact on the squad.

“I joined the TNS Academy when I was 14, I want to be a footballer and I know that with the standard of coaching there, I’ll have the best chance of doing that,” said Tomos
Tomos, who travels from Newtown two to three times per week to the Oswestry-based club, enjoys the style of coaching he receives: “The coaches are always teaching us different ways of doing things to improve our performance.”

The under-15’s inside forward has a bright future with the club according to his coach Jason Brindley: “Tom is technically one of the best players in the squad, he’s also a very polite player and a hard worker.”

Despite his success on the pitch, Tomos and the rest of his team mates will all have to compete for their place in the 2016/17 season in the annual trials taking place throughout April and May.
Tomos ends: “I’d definitely recommend the TNS Academy to anyone my age who loves football. It’s a good place to be to develop my skills, learn new ones and make friends.”

Anyone interested in signing up for a trial should contact Jason.brindley@tnsfc.co.uk (age 7-11) or steve.benyon@tnsfc.co.uk (age 12-16).
