Saints sign Bernie

The New Saints Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Bernard Hirmer.


Hirmer, 45, has joined the Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League Champions as a first team goalkeeper coach.


‘Bernie’ is a former Bayern Munich goalkeeper and was advised to join the Oswestry based club by his good friend, Dietmar Hamann. The Liverpool legend knows all about The Saints after he worked with TNS coach Carl Darlington and he told his German compatriot to join Craig Harrison’s side, ‘I spoke to Didi about the move and he said yes I should join.’


Hirmer also spent time with Saints winger Ryan Fraughan, during his time at Stockport County and was eager to mention the quality of both TNS goalkeepers, ‘I am very happy with the quality that Paul and Mullock have. I am really looking forward to working closely with them throughout the year.’
