Hosting The New Saints FC’s Annual Celebration Evening, Welcoming Our Special Guest, Gary Newbon (1205)

With the JD Welsh Premier League season finishing with a 1-0 win at home against Connah’s Quay Nomads, a day later it was back to Park Hall for our annual celebration evening.

Having wrapped up the title for the eighth consecutive season with a few games to go, it was indeed a celebration. Although the team had been in second or third place for most of the campaign, nevertheless it’s what happens at the end, not the beginning, that counts.

It was a pleasure to host the event, which was attended by guests, officials, staff, and of course, the players. Our special guest for the evening was well-known TV personality, Gary Newbon.

Gary is a friend of our Chairman, Mike Harris, and the last time he was with us was for the UEFA Champions League game against HNK Rijeka a couple of seasons ago, when TNS Radio commentary was streamed live round the world.

It was a great night and I loved it. It’s always a pleasure – and a privilege – to serve the club in ways like this.
