Farewell Wildey

Having made over 300 appearances for The Saints and scored over 150 goals, Mike Wilde has ended his second spell with the club.

The powerful striker has been an important player for the club, ever since joining for his first spell back in 2002.

Having scored a number of goals during his first spell with the club, Wilde moved on and played for both Chester City and Fleetwood Town before returning to TNS.

During his second spell with the club, Wilde scored a landmark 150th Welsh Premier League goal during a 4-1 victory against Newtown.

The achievement is all the more impressive when you consider that the 150 League goals came in only 210 starts.

The TNS number 18 also managed to score a famous hat-trick in the UEFA Champions League against Faroese Champions, B36 Torshavn, becoming the first ever player in the Welsh league to score a Champions League hat-trick.

Wilde was an integral part of the side during his time with TNS and helped The Saints to successive domestic trebles in his last two seasons with the club.

Wilde looked back at his time with the club with fond memories and added, ‘I have loads of fond memories with TNS, in the Champions League – scoring in Europe, playing against Liverpool and Manchester City, but also all the goals that have led to us winning the league over the years too.’

TNS Manager Craig Harrison was full of praise for Wilde and said, ‘I wish Mike Wilde all the luck in the world moving forward and would like to thank him for all he has done for the club, the team and myself. He has been an excellent professional on and off the pitch and a real talisman over the last four years. He has scored lots of important goals and is and will always be a TNS legend, up there with Scott Ruscoe and Steve Evans.’

TNS would like to wish Mike Wilde all the best in the future.
