History behind the club's crest

LLANSANTFRAID FC paddled in the quiet backwaters of amateur football for more than 30 years until, as the FAW began to build a pyramid system in Wales, the Saints began their climb.
With an ambitious and innovative committee, and galvanised by the possibilities opening up for Welsh clubs, the club won three promotions in four seasons to reach the League of Wales in 1993.
Observers of the Welsh soccer scene predicted instant relegation. But the club defied the odds to survive in the top flight. Every step of the way, the club grew in stature and the Treflan trophy cupboard began to fill. The League Cup was won in 1995 and then, at the old National Stadium a year later, Llansantffraid triumphed in the Welsh Cup, leading to a first European experience in Poland.
Total Network SolutionsIn 1997, computer company Total Network Solutions, from their base on the border in Oswestry, made Llansantffraid an offer no club could refuse. In the absence of sponsorship, TV revenues or public assistance, WP clubs cannot afford to reject a helping hand. In a shoestring league you don't need a fortune to get ahead - any investment will lift you ahead of the pack.
The price of the deal was a change of name to TNS. In most countries businesses support clubs, in many countries clubs are businesses, but only in Wales could it happen that a business IS the club!

When TNS wrestled the championship title from Barry Town's grip in 2000, their astonishingly rapid rise to the top was not complete. Managing director Mike Harris never rests on his laurels. A new stand, fully professional status, a youth structure and a twinning deal with Chelsea have followed and TNS are now regular title contenders and European qualifiers.
Now, the merger with Oswestry Town has given the club further impetus with plans for a 3,000 seater modern stadium over the border in a far more populous area, with the opportunity to develop and increase the club's fan base.
