The New Saints of Oswestry Town & Llansantffraid Football Club, also known as The New Saints or TNS is a full-time-professional football club representing Oswestry in Shropshire and Llansantffraid-ym-Mechain in Powys, Wales– the two places are 8 miles apart. They play in the Welsh Premier League, which they have won a record twelve times – including the past seven seasons.
Founded in 1959 as Llansantffraid F.C., from 1997 to 2006, the club was known as Total Network Solutions F.C. after its sponsor. In 2003, it merged with Oswestry Town F.C. and three years later it adopted its current name.
TNS play at Park Hall in Oswestry after moving there in 2007 from the Recreation Ground in Llansantffraid. Park Hall accommodates 2,034 spectators of which 1,000 are seated and there are plans to upgrade the ground to 3,000 capacity in the future.
