Barry Town Utd 0 TNS 4

TNS silenced their doubters with an emphatic win at Barry Town United securing yet another JD Welsh Premier title.

The Oswestrians were rampant from the opening whistle with Aeron Edwards' header from Ryan Brobbel's corner testing home goalkeeper Mike Lewis inside the opening minute.

TNS led on seven minutes with Chris Marriott's decisive long ball releasing Brobbel whose weighted chip into the area saw Edwards cushion into the path of Greg Draper who volleyed home in style.

TNS continued to dominate the game with Barry forced to live off scraps with striker Kayne McLaggon a virtual spectator for the first-half.

However TNS failed to capitalise and found themselves frustrated for the remainder of the half.

It was a similar story after the break with TNS dominant but failing to penetrate the home defence.

With 20 minutes remaining TNS had one hand on the title when Kane Lewis released Jamie Mullan on the right who cut inside and fired a low left foot drive past Lewis.

Seven minutes later the Saints celebrated a third with Dean Ebbe and Tom Holland linking to release Mullan on the right who crossed for Edwards to powerfully head past Lewis.

TNS added a deserved fourth at the death with Adrian Cieslewicz's left wing cross picking out Mullan who squared for Jon Routledge to wrong foot Lewis from 12 yards.

Seconds later the Saints celebrated as the final whistle sounded but with no trophy presentation the champions were left to toast their 13th title with champagne.

Manager Scott Ruscoe said: "The immediate feeling is that I’m really pleased and proud again..

"This season has been really different, but in a perverse way I think we’ve been even better.

“This will stand us in good stead for Europe because we’ve had to be pushed and pushed.
