Ahead of the new season, three of Park Hall’s brightest youngsters are making their way out on loan as they seek game time and experience,
Both Andy Wycherley and Aron Hughes-Jones stay within the Welsh system, as they join Guilsfield FC and Caersws FC respectively.
Earlier today we chatted with TNS’ goalkeeping coach, Graeme Classon, who stated that he was “Very happy to get Andy out on loan and playing some senior games.”
In reference to the player’s development, Graeme added, “He’s had plenty of experience being around the first team here at TNS and now we look forward to adding consistent competitive game time to that. I look forward to seeing him develop this season at a good club under Lenny who we all know will look after him.”
Our new manager, Scott Ruscoe, echoed the sentiments. “Andy will get much needed game time at Guilsfield and will gain experience in a strong, physical league which will bring his game on.”
He then added, “Nathan Leonard is a young enthusiastic manager, who we have a good relationship with and who will be looking to put his own stamp on his new team. I hope he can start to show his potential, he has a good chance to shine.”
Wycherley himself gave the big thumbs-up to the move, stating that he was “Happy to be getting minutes on the pitch and gaining more experience in men’s football.”
Still in the Huws Gray Alliance, and likey to be facing his TNS team-mate next season on the pitch, is Aron Hughes Jones. With just twenty miles or so between Guilsfield and Caersws, the two could possibly go head-to-head in the mid-Wales derby.
“Aron will get the chance to get minutes in a good side who are run by Graeme Evans, an ex colleague of mine who knows the league and is a great football man” commented Scott Ruscoe earlier today.
Sharing his expectations from the move, the player-turned-manager added, “Aron will gain strength both physically and mentally at that level which hopefully will be a positive for player and club. I wish him all the best.”
Meanwhile, Jacob Farleigh stays closer to home as he joins FC Oswestry Town. The ambitious Hallmark Security League (North West Counties Football League) are based at Park Hall so it will be home-from-home for the young attacking player.
“Jacob’s loan move to FC Oswestry will benefit both the player and the club. He’s a talented youngster who scores goals from wide areas and will bring a different dimension to their team” commented TNS’ Chief Operating Officer, Ian Williams.
He then went on to add that “He’s keen to learn and playing regular football will no doubt benefit his development in a competitive league environment.”
Commenting on the move, earlier today Scott Ruscoe threw out the challenge to the youngster. “Jacob is a player of real potential that needs to be challenged and assert himself on matches.”
“He is another player who will benefit from coming up against tough, uncompromising defenders in that league. I’m looking forward to seeing how he copes, and to see how much he wants it.”
Both Farleigh and Hughes-Jones are on loan until the January transfer window, with Wycherley moving for the season.
Everyone at Park Hall wishes them the very best for the immediate future.
