TNS NSC vs Lancaster




On Wednesday February 7th, 14 of the Professional Phase players faced Lancaster at home in the ECFA Category 1 League. After an early sloppy goal conceded, the boys re-grouped and scored 4 well worked goals through penetrative attacking football, courtesy of Harry Bower, Ismael Ozdemir, CJ Craven and Liam Parry. Unfortunately the boys then took their foot off the gas and made uncharacteristic mistakes, and were guilty of missing endless guilt edge chances, but managed to run out comfortable 4-1 winners.

TNS NSC U19's 1-1 FLINT TOWN UNITED U19's





The New Saints Under 19 team's hopes of extending their lead at the top of the JD Welsh Premier Development League (North) were dashed as they could only draw 1-1 at home to Flint Town United at Park Hall Stadium on Sunday.

Saints had gone into Sunday's game with a 7 point lead at the top over 2nd placed Bangor City after a 5 match winning run dating back to their only league defeat so far (2-3 away by Connah's Quay Nomads) on 12th November.

Meanwhile, Flint went into the game in 8th place out of 12 in the table with a record of 5 wins, 2 draws and 5 defeats from their 12 league games so far.

Indeed, it was Flint who took something of a surprise lead in the 4th minute when Joel Griffiths' free kick from the halfway line to the right of middle saw Connor Turner challenge Saints keeper Aaron Jones, with the ball falling to Nathan Mendoza who fired his low left foot shot from 12 yards into Jones' right hand corner.

Saints went close to equalising in the 29th minute when Paul Naylor's free kick from 20 yards just to the right of middle was well tipped past his left hand angle by Flint keeper Elliot Quinlan for a corner.

There were few serious clear-cut chances for either side in the first half but the next one came Flint's way in the 42nd minute when Turner's low through ball down the right found Charlie Hughes, who made a strong run into the box before having his right foot shot saved at his left hand post by Jones.

A golden chance came Saints' way in the 44th minute when Harry Bower ran down the right before crossing to the far post to Rob Reynolds, whose left foot angled drive from 8 yards seemed to be heading into Quinlan's left hand corner till the keeper somehow managed to hold onto it.

Saints suffered a blow when Naylor was shown a straight red card by referee Patrick Wilding 27 seconds into added time at the end of the half for kicking out at Flint's Iwan Rogers to leave the hosts to battle on with just 10 men.

The first serious chance of note in the second half came Saints' way with exactly 14 completed minutes played when Liam Ihekwoaba's long ball over the top on the right found Bower who ran towards the byeline before seeing his low cross diverted by Flint defender Griffiths towards goal before Quinlan made a great save to his right to prevent an own goal.

A great chance came Saints' way in the 62nd minute when Bower ran down the right before crossing to Reynolds, whose right foot shot from 2 yards out was spilled by Quinlan before the ball ran towards James Gregory-Cork who was tackled as he tried to take a shot from the rebound.

There was a touch of controversy about Saints' equaliser in the 90th minute when, from a throw in on the Saints right which should have been Flint's after both the referee and his assistant failed to spot that the ball had nicked off a Saints player, Michael Cole's throw in found Chris Craven whose right foot flick on found Bower who ran into the right of the box before being adjudged to have been brought down by Jack Jones.  Referee Wilding said penalty and after the fuss had died down, Callum Jones stepped up to calmly fire the resulting spot kick into Quinlan's left hand corner.

There were no more serious chances for either side after that and a few seconds into the 6th minute of an originally indicated  minimum of 5 minutes added time at the end, the final blast of referee Wilding's whistle brought the game to a close.

It had been an overall below par performance by Saints who played better in the second half with manager Steve Benyon saying his side "hadn't been at the races."

Indeed, it was much more a case of 2 points dropped than a point gained with that late equaliser.

Saints: Aaron Jones, Matt Cole, Liam Ihekwoaba, James Gregory-Cork, Paul Naylor, Callum Jones, Rob Reynolds, Harry Bower, Chris Craven, Lewis Kaye.  Subs: James Parry (for Kaye 55), Dennis Bates (for Craven 72), Liam Parry (for Reynolds 63).

Flint: Elliot Quinlan, Zach Williams, Tom Burrows, Joel Griffiths, Jack Jones, Ryan Coney, Connor Turner, Iwan Rogers, Nathan Mendoza, Charlie Hughes, Nathan Saunders.  Subs: Kieran Townson (for Coney 79), Lewis Roberts (for Saunders 53)

TNS NSC vs Shrewsbury Colleges and Heart of Worcestershire




On Wednesday January 25th, 13 of the Professional Phase players faced Shrewsbury Colleges at home in the County Cup Quarter Final. The first half proved to be frustrating with the players making uncharacteristic mistakes, with the score at half time being 0-0. However after a few changes, the boys came out much sharper and scored 5 well worked goals,Bower (x4) and a great strike through Curtis Weetman, to end the game 5-0 winners and a place in the semi finals against Adams Grammar. Training topic this week is beating the block, with Caernarfon away Sunday. The home squad played Heart of Worcestershire in a top of the table clash, and unfortunately came away empty handed, with a 3-2 loss, with 2 goals from Harley Steel. Training focuses on preparation for the Flint game Sunday in the Welsh Development League, with also the completion of all player mid-season reviews.

TNS 19's vs Caernarfon 19's




On Sunday January 14th, 13 of the Professional Phase players faced Caernarfon away in the Welsh Premier Development League. Together we knew it wouldn't be our normal style of play due to the state of the pitch, and this was apparent with a very lack lustre first half, which ended 1-1, with Rob Reynolds equalising 5 minutes before half time. After a few stern words at half time, the boys came out much more prepared, and were rewarded with their persistence through goals from Rob Reynolds, Paul Naylor and Dennis Bates. The game ended disappointingly with yet again sloppy play resulting in a 45 yard wonder strike, with the final whistle confirming a 4-2 victory. We all agreed at full time that the performance was unacceptable, but the spirit and belief in the squad was still evident, with the boys looking to put things right during next week's training topic; defending from wide areas, as well as two games Wednesday against Rochdale and Warwickshire, followed by a free Sunday due to eight boys receiving international call ups.

TNS E1 vs Newcastle Under Lyme & Crewe



On Wednesday January 10th, 14 of the Professional Phase players faced Newcastle Under Lyme away in the ECFA Category 1 League. The game started off at a frantic pace, with the players playing some nice football on a heavy pitch, and we were rewarded with a goal from Lewis Kaye to go into the break 1-0. Unfortunately we never hit the same heights in the second half, and allowed a soft equaliser from the penalty spot. The boys however defended heroically at times, and should have really won the game through 2 counter attacks, but the game finished 1-1. Training topic this week is beating the block, with Caernarfon away Sunday. The home squad played Crewe in a friendly and secured a 3-3 draw, through goals from Cal Routley and Darren Evans. Lots of promising comments from coaches Si and Kieran.

TNS 19's vs Conwy 19's




On Sunday January 7th, 14 of the Professional Phase players faced Conwy at home in the Welsh Premier Development League. This was the first game for the boys since the 9-0 drubbing of Druids, but the lack of contact showed, with the players struggling to string 3 passes together, whilst making uncharacteristic mistakes. We welcomed Steve Saunders into the team for his first competitive minutes, and went into the break 3-1 up, courtesy of 2 goals from Liam Parry and 1 from the returning Tomos Williams. The second half however was a completely different story, with yet again uncharacteristic mistakes from normally reliable players leading to Conwy scoring 3 very soft goals. We however managed to score a further 4 goals through Liam parry, totalling an individual haul of 4 goals, and goals from Harley Steel and Rob Reynolds. After the full time whistle, the boys were clearly disappointed, but we now turn our attention to rectifying these mistakes starting tomorrow in training. It was nice to see players gaining valuable minutes, but another lesson learnt by the players to ensure that every time they pull on the shirt, high standards must be maintained. Training topic this week is beating the block, with 2 games Wednesday against Newcastle and Warwickshire, followed by Caernarfon away Sunday.

TNS 19's vs Druids



On Thursday December 21st, 15 of the new Professional Phase players faced Cefn Druids at home in the Welsh Premier Development League. The game was played at a high quality, with numerous chances created by ourselves, with the score being 4-0 through goals from Harry Bower, CJ Craven x2 and Callum Jones . Second half saw the introduction of 3 fresh faces, with a  further 5 goals scored, with both CJ and Guyguy recording hat-tricks, and Harry with another, resulting in a convincing 9-0 victory. It was pleasing to see a positive reaction after Tuesday's poor performance, and also nice to see players gaining valuable minutes, even without a number of key players from the Bangor game, which truly reflects the strength in depth I have at my disposal. The boys will now break up for Christmas, with training back on Wednesday 3rd January. We end the year top of the table, 6 points clear of second place Bangor, and 9 clear of Connahs Quay, who have 3 games in hand. On behalf of the management team consisting of Simon Smith, Jason Brindley, Kieran Lee-Birch, Gregg Jones, Steve Saunders and Simon Spender, we would like to wish all the players and parents a very merry Christmas.

Bangor 19's vs TNS 19's




On Sunday December 17th, 16 of the new Professional Phase players faced Bangor Away in the Welsh Premier Development League. We knew we were going to be up against it with the opposition sitting second in the table, and the current Development League Champions. The game was played at a high quality, with numerous chances created by ourselves, but for poor finishing the score remained 0-0 half-time. Our luck changed second half through a well taken goal from Rob Reynolds, after previously hitting the post. James Parry picked up 2 sloppy bookings, which meant we were to play the last 30 minutes with 10 men. We conceded a dubious last minute penalty, but Aaron Jones proved to be 1 of many heroes with a fantastic stop to spark wild scenes at full time, to win the game 1-0. I am so proud of the players who competed well and at times outclass a very good Bangor side, and the future is extremely bright with 11 of the 16 only 16 years of age. I still feel we still aren't firing on all cylinders, but still it was a brilliant reaction I was expecting and the players to deliver today, which they certainly did for large spells, but now need to work on game management and key decision making in specific areas and at important times. This week sees many of the boys represent their county against West Midland Monday night, with a Category 1 Premier Cup game at home to Manchester Mens 1 Tuesday and Thursday at home to Cefn Druids at 6.30pm, before a well deserved Christmas break.

Sandwell Men's 3 vs TNS NSC Men's 2




On Wednesday December 6th, 14 of the new Professional Phase players faced Sandwell Away in the ECFA Category 3 League. We knew we were going to be up against it with the opposition reportedly fielding higher players due to no game. The first half saw us be out muscled by the far superior opposition in terms of muscle mass and we went into the break 2-1 down. After some deliberation at half-time as to what had gone on, the players themselves created their own diagnosis on the half and a set of objectives to achieve. This resulted in seven second half goals scored, ending the game in a 2-8 victory, with the scorers being Liam Parry x4, Ismael Ozdemir x2 and Harley Steel x2. It was great to see a number of boys who I hadn't had chance to watch, playing the TNS way, which is a credit to their coaches Simon and Kieran. Training this week will continue to work on defending against the counter attack.

Bala vs TNS NSC 




On Sunday December 3rd, 14 of the new Professional Phase players faced Bala Away in the Welsh Premier Development League. We knew we were going to be up against it with the opposition sitting second in the table. The first half saw us completely rip the opposition apart with fantastic pattern play to score 5 first half goals through Rob Reynolds x2, Harry Bower, Callum Jones and Matt Cole. Second half however saw us concede 3 sloppy goals through our mistakes and complacency, but again managed to score another 3 outstanding goals with hat tricks from Rob and Harry x2. I am so proud of the players who completely dominated and the future is extremely bright with 10 of the 14 only 16 years of age. I still feel we aren't firing on all cylinders with key players missing but still it was a brilliant reaction I was expecting and the players to deliver today, which they certainly did for large spells, but now need to work on game management and key decision making in specific areas and at important times, as all 3 goals were avoidable. Training this week will work on defending against the counter attack ready for Wednesday's game against Sandwell.

Myerscough Men's 1 vs TNS NSC Men's 1 and TNS NSC Men's 2 vs Birmingham Met Stourbridge Men's 2



On Wednesday November 29th, 13 of the new Professional Phase players faced Myerscough Away in the ECFA National Premier Category 1 League. It proved to be an extremely frustrating day as we were well off the pace even after managing to score after 5 minutes through Liam Parry. However we never really got going and were wasteful in chances created, and were punished in the 89th minute through a poor equaliser. The game ended 1-1. The other squad won their fourth league game out of four against Birmingham Met 6-2, through goals from Darren Evans x2, James Parry x2, Callum Routley and Paul Naylor, but again a lot of work still required on numerous areas. We go again Friday whereby we will continue to work on this week's topic in preparation for next Sunday's game against Bala, whereby changes will be made.

York College Men's 1 vs TNS NSC Men's 1




On Wednesday November 22nd, 14 of the new Professional Phase players faced current holders York College Away in the ECFA National Premier Category 1 cup. We knew we were going to be up against it with the opposition fielding a side who won the competition last season. We started extremely well and scored a fantastic break away goal through Liam Parry after 45 seconds. We weathered the storm from brief attacks from York, but could have also snatched a second late on. However we stood form to record a famous victory and into the next round.  I am proud so proud of the players who battled well and proved themselves capable at this level, with 8 of the 14 only 16 years of age. We still have room for improvement but we go again Friday whereby we continue to work on this week's topic in preparation for next Wednesday's games against Myerscough and Birmingham Met.

Connahs Quay 19's vs NSC 19's



On Sunday November 12th, 15 of the new Professional Phase players faced Connahs Quay Away in the Welsh Premier Development League. We knew we were going to be up against it with the opposition fielding a side littered with 18 and 19 year olds including first team fringe players. We coped fantastically well but conceded 3 sloppy goals including a last minute penalty. I am not one for blaming officials as I believe we are to blame for decisions and actions leading to the goals. We scored 2 well worked goals through James Parry and Guyguy Maboy, and were unfortunate to come away with a 3-2 loss. I am proud of the players who battled well and proved themselves capable at this level, with 11 of the 15 only 16 years of age. I still feel we aren't firing on all cylinders with key players missing but still it was a reaction I was expecting and the players delivered today, but now need to work on game management and key decision making in specific areas and at important times, as all 3 goals were avoidable. Training this week will work on attacking from wide areas, with Wednesday's games against Dudley and Bridgnorth respectively.

NSC Men's 1 vs Accrington Men's 1


On Wednesday November 8th, 14 of the new Professional Phase players faced Accrington in the ECFA Category 1 League. After the highs from Sunday's win against Airbus it was the worse possible start as sloppy play allowed Accrington to score inside 1 minute. Chances went begging for the home side and we were punished yet again for not being ruthless in front of goal with a 1-0 defeat. I still feel we aren't firing on all cylinders with key players missing but still I am looking for a reaction ready for Sunday's huge game away at Connahs Quay whereby I know they have already been taking notes. Training this week will continue to work on Maintaining possession with forward passes, with  Sunday's game against Connahs Quay.

NSC vs Airbus 19's



On Sunday November 5th, 15 of the new Professional Phase players faced Airbus in the Welsh Premier Development League. After last weeks disappointing loss to Llandudno in the Welsh Youth Cup, the boys were looking to bounce back and maintain our unbeaten start. We controlled the game for large periods constantly carving open the opposition, who were still well organised, and scored 2 good goals through Sam Finley and James Parry. The downside was the way we conceded a sloppy late goal, whereby we should have seen out the game, but it was nice to record a 2-1 win and make it 8 wins from 8. I still feel we aren't firing on all cylinders with key players missing but still it was a reaction I was expecting and the players delivered today. Training this week will work on Maintaining possession with forward passes, with Wednesday's and Sunday's games against Accrington and Connahs Quay respectively.

NSC vs Walsall College Mens 2



On Wednesday November 1st, 13 of the new Professional Phase players faced Walsall in the Category 3 League. The boys found their shooting boots and scored 19 goals, with the only downside being conceding in the 90th minute. It was pleasing to see players get valuable minutes, but still real work to be done, in terms of endless chances missed, poor decision making in key areas, as well as not staying focused for the entire game. Training this week will continue to focus on shooting and decision making in and around the penalty box, with Sundays game against Airbus in mind.

NSC vs Llandudno  (Premier Development Youth Cup)




On Sunday 29th October, 15 of the the new Professional Phase players faced Llandudno in the Welsh Premier Development Youth cup second round. Unfortunately the boys put in a disappointing performance and conceded two sloppy goals to fall to a 2-0 defeat. Credit to Llandudno who were worthy winners, but we re-group and analyse and work on the many areas for improvement. Training this week focuses on the second batch of fitness testing with Strength and Conditioning coach Ed Harper, as well as shooting and decision making in and around the penalty box, with games against Walsall and Airbus.

NSC vs Llandudno




On Sunday 22nd October, 16 of the the new Professional Phase players travelled away to Llandudno in the Welsh Premier Development League looking to preserve their 100% record. We knew the game would be our most difficult to date, which wasn't helped by the difficult conditions, and some fantastic defending and a great strike by Callum Jones, saw us go into the break at 1-0. It was the first time we found ourselves in at half-time not having completely controlled proceedings due to a well organised Llandudno side. Second half, we were able to play with the wind, and a great Rob Reynolds header sealed the game and a 2-0 away victory to remain unbeaten and top of the table. Credit to Llandudno who certainly should be higher in the league and now we look forward to welcoming Tranmere Rovers and Llay United respectively for friendly fixtures on Thursday followed by IDP work on the Friday in preparation for Sunday's Welsh Youth Cup second round against Llandudno. It was also pleasing to see the boys adapt with numerous key players missing due to England trials and holiday, but again truly shows the strength in depth we possess. The boys will now have a well deserved few days off to recover and continue to work on their specific IDP and strength and conditioning exercises.

NSC Men's 1 vs Lancaster and Morecambe & NSC Men's 2 vs Hartpury




On Wednesday 18th October, 13 of the the new Professional Phase players traveled away to Lancaster and Morecambe in the Category 1 league. Disappointingly the players never got going, with the players playing nowhere near what is required of them, conceding 2 sloppy goals and losing a game we really should be winning. In the home game, things weren't much better as a bad day at the office was condemned by a humiliating 5-0 defeat to Hartpury, whereby the 14 Professional Phase players were completely off task and not performing to their normal high standards. We go back to the drawing board during Friday's training, whereby there will be changes made in order to shake things up to seek a reaction.

NSC vs Newtown 



On Sunday 15th October, 14 of the the new NSC Professional Phase players faced Newtown Under 19's in the sixth Welsh Premier Development League game at home. Returning first team player Chris Marriott was welcomed back into the squad, and played 45 minutes on his comeback from injury. The game started off at a slow pace, with the boys failing to shift the ball and play forwards with their normal conviction. After a largely disappointing half, we managed to score 3 goals through Guyguy, Paul and James to go into the half at 3-0.  

The team set some objectives at the interval in an attempt to try and get back to their normal high standards, and even though the squad scored a further 5 second half goals through Paul, Tom Wx 2, Harry B and a comeback 19's goal for Darren, the performance was somewhat still a way off the normal free-flowing attacking football.  However it was pleasing that the players were able to gain valuable minutes whilst also scoring 8, and conceding none, but the team plan to go back to the drawing board during the next week's training schedule to tweak their areas for improvement both individually and as a collective to prepare for Wednesday's Category 1 league game away to Lancaster and Morecombe, as well as the Cup match for the other players against Hartpury  and the huge challenge next Sunday away to Llandudno.
