TNS Make History

The New Saints of Oswestry Town clinched a domestic treble for the second year running after a comfortable 2-0 win against Airbus UK Broughton in the 129th JD FAW Welsh Cup Final at Wrexham’s Glyndwr University Stadium.

A Ryan Brobbel goal in the first half and a Scott Quigley strike in the second half ensured that history was created for The Saints.

In what was an even opening to the game, Quigley had the first chance of the game when his shot sailed wide from the edge of the box.

Minutes later and it was Airbus who broke forward but James Murphy’s shot flew wide before Chris Budrys had a great chance but shot over from close range.

The game continued to be an even affair but on the half hour mark, Brobbel capitalised on a loose ball and converted from close range to give TNS the lead.

The second half began with Mike Wilde replacing Matty Williams and within minutes, TNS doubled the lead.

A superb break ended up with Adrian Cieslewicz breaking forward and his cross was met by Quigley who slotted in from six yards out to give TNS a two goal advantage.

A minute later and Quigley nearly added another goal but James Coates’ wonderful save denied the TNS forward.

However, that proved to be the final bit of action and TNS comfortably cruised to victory.

 

 

TNS: Harrison (C), Spender, Marriott, Rawlinson, A.Edwards, K.Edwards, Cieslewicz, Seargeant (Baker 66), Williams (Wilde 46), Quigley and Brobbel.

The unused substitutes were Mullock, Draper and Pryce.
