TNS manager Scott Ruscoe will ring the changes for the visit of Caernarfon Town on Saturday.

With the JD Welsh Premier title secured at Barry Town United last weekend the Oswestrians head into the weekend with one eye on the forthcoming JD Welsh Cup Final.

Ruscoe urged fringe players to seize their moment to impress against a Caernarfon side which climbed to fourth with victory over Newtown last week.

“Saturday is about picking the right side,” said Ruscoe. “I might play a few who have been out of the side recently and then it’s about looking at players who deserve to play

“We have a decision to make on who’s going to play in the cup final.”

Ruscoe confirmed defender Simon Spender and striker Billy Whitehouse would be given every chance to stake a claim for a cup final squad place with the visit of Caernarfon Town offering fringe players their opportunity.

The Saints manager insisted the Saints remained hungry for the double and would not be content with just the league, their 13th title overall and eighth in succession.

“It’s great for me, to see the players so hungry they want to keep the shirt. The only part of the squad missing depth is central defence which is a priority,” said Ruscoe.

Ruscoe also confirmed planning for next season had begun.

“We’ve got 13 or 14 players out of contract and we have to make our mind up on our squad next season and where we need to strengthen. There will be one or two changes but it won’t be like last year.”

Ruscoe confessed TNS’ squad overhaul last summer was a risk.

“That could have backfired on us and having parted company with eight players. It’s very difficult to know if new players were going to gel.

“We’re fortunate with the players that have come in who have taken us to another level.”
