The New Saints’ Football Connection With The Forces

As you may well be aware if you follow our media output regularly, we recently hosted the British Army Women’s Football v Royal Air Force Ladies’ game at Park Hall (March 14, 2018). You can read the report on

What you may not know however, is that TNS Ladies’ star Lou Anderson – or to use her full title and attachment, Lance Corporal Louisa Anderson, 237 Squadron, 159 Regiment RLC – almost played (assuming selection, of course) in that fixture but had a prior commitment with our ladies’ side that evening.

With games on the horizon though, Lou is hoping to feature during April: “I’ve recently been selected to represent Corps in the league on Friday, April 13 and the Inter-Corps Cup on Wednesday, April 18. A couple of good performances and I’ll be on track.” she told us, when we chatted with her this week.

Courtesy of the Wolverhampton-born, tough-tackling and no-nonsense central defender, TNS gets a couple of mentions in the Army Reserve official football programme 2018/2019 and you can see those in the accompanying photographs.

Everyone at The New Saints wishes Lou all the very best indeed for her upcoming football adventures – and beyond.
