Manager Scott Ruscoe

Holder of the all-time appearances record during his playing career for The New Saints FC, Scott is a club and JD Welsh Premier League legend.  After hanging up his boots, he held the position of first team Assistant Manager as well as Head of Youth.

From the commencement of the 2017/2018 season, following the departure of Craig Harrison to Hartlepool United, Ruscoe was appointed as first team manager.

Born in Shrewsbury on 15 December 1977, Scott holds the UEFA A License and the Youth A License and is responsible for the day-to-day running of the first team.

As a player he began his career at Stoke City, moving to Port Vale, Newtown AFC and Chester before joining The New Saints in 2001, where he has remained ever since. He was previously club captain, winning eight League Titles, three Welsh Cups, six League Cups and one Premier Cup as a player.

He made what was then, a Welsh Premier League record 30 appearances in Europe for the club in all competitions. The record has since been eclipsed by Pip Baker, and then by Paul Harrison, who is the current holder.

Qualifying for Wales courtesy of his father, he has played on three occasions for the semi-professional Under-23s side.

Scott was awarded Clubman Of The Year by the Football Association of Wales in 2014 and was inducted into the Welsh Premier League Hall Of Fame in 2015.
