Emotional Connah's Quay manager Andy Morrison aimed a swipe at New Saints chairman Mike Harris - moments after his side retained the JD Cymru Premier title.

Former Manchester City ace Morrison spoke to S4C after his side's 2-0 win at Penybont wrapped up the title, appearing in a customised hoody with the words "#realchampions" emblazoned across the front, a reference to the TNS chairman's numerous social media digs at his side's curtailed championship season which eventually led to the Deeside outfit being awarded their title in the high court.

The feud dates back to July 2020, when TNS took legal action after Connah's Quay Nomads were named JD Cymru Premier champions following a curtailed season.

Connah's Quay had been awarded the title under an unweighted points-per-game method.

"I'm incredibly proud, it'll probably sink it later on," said Morrison.

"The defining moment was the massacre at Park Hall, the 4-1 massacre, that's the defining moment. Everything else fell into place.

"It's been nip and tuck all the way, but the massacre at Park Hall, the 4-1, was the difference.

"The hoody is a pure tribute to my mate Mike Harris back down at TNS because last year we won the title and we had to go to the high court for it to be awarded to us, and then we were taunted with not being the real champions and that they were the real champions.

"It's not just about today, it's about back to back titles. You've got to be careful, because football always comes back to get you."

TNS supremo Harris had earlier tweeted his congratulations to Connah's Quay, Morrison and to former manager Craig Harrison, now assistant at Connah's Quay. He also paid tribute to Connah's Quay chairman Gary Dewhurst.

"Congratulations to Connah's Quay Nomads on winning the Cymru League. Well done Andy, Craig Harrison. Enjoy the evening and look forward to doing battle again next season - #QuayRealChampions

"Well done @GaryDewhurst - league needs more chairman like you."
