The New Saints has completed their first signing of the summer as Sion Bradley joins the JD Cymru Premier champions following his incredible season for Caernarfon Town.

The Welshman, who was recently included on the shortlist for the 2023-24 JD Cymru Premier Player of the Season award, was a standout performer for Richard Davies’ side last season as they qualified for Europe for the first time in the club’s history.

Last season also saw the talented midfielder score an incredible winning goal for Wales C in their historic 1-0 victory over England C, hosted at Stebonheath Park, Llanelli.

The midfielder, who will wear the number 20 shirt at Park Hall, is the first signing of the summer for The New Saints, who have returned to pre-season training as preparations for the UEFA Champions League campaign ramp up on and off the pitch. 


With 171 Cymru Premier appearances to his name, the 26-year-old has attracted attention from a variety of top clubs, but has made Park Hall his home, as TNS strengthen their side as they look to once again make history both domestically and in Europe next season.

Bradley said: “I’m delighted to have signed for The New Saints FC. There’s some incredible talent within this squad and the club's ambitions to succeed both in the league and Europe played a big part in joining TNS.

"I am looking to make a positive impact on the team following their incredible season last year, so I can’t wait to get stuck into training ahead of a big year for the club.

“We have some huge fixtures coming up in the UEFA Champions League and I want to help the side progress as far as possible on the European stage this season.”

Head Coach Craig Harrison said: ​​“Sion is a typical TNS player with lots of ability, lots of creativity, and he scores some great goals.

“We’re a very attacking team who dominate the ball in most games, so I think he’ll fit in nicely, and add real competition for those front spaces. 

“He can play anywhere across the front and is very versatile, but something that’s just as important is his experience in the league as well - he knows what the domestic league is all about. 

“At just 26 years of age and coming into a full-time environment, we’re confident we can get more out of him as well."

Also sharing his thoughts on the signing was Chairman, Mike Harris, who said:  “Sion is a great example of the talent on show in the JD Cymru Premier and we’re incredibly pleased to have him on board for the upcoming season.

“We want to attract the best talent possible to all of our teams here at The New Saints FC as we look to bolster our chances of competing at the highest level both domestically and across Europe”
