Fraughan makes Park Hall move permanent

WELSH Premier player of the month for April, Stockport County loanee Ryan Fraughan has made his move to Park Hall permanent after the talented winger agreed a two-year deal with The New Saints.

"I'm thrilled at completing the deal as I really enjoyed my time at the club last season, resulting in us clinching the Welsh Premier title and victory in the Welsh Cup," said Fraughan.
"The opportunity to compete in the UEFA Champions League was also a major factor in me making the move permanent."
Director of football Craig Harrison was equally happy at the signing: "Ryan played an important part in our success last season and I'm delighted to sign someone of Ryan's quality and with football league experience," he added.
"He is still only 21 and has attracted a lot of interest from other clubs in the English system, he has massive potential and can only get better, he's a great signing for the club, a real match winner."
The majority of the squad who were out of contract have also put pen to paper with skipper Paul Harrison, influential defenders Phil Baker and Steve Evans and Chris Marriott all agreeing new deals alongside Welsh Under-23 Internationals Aeron Edwards.
Joining them are Alex Darlington and long serving midfield players Nicky Ward and Scott Ruscoe, who will also continue to have an influential role in the club's youth development programme.
Alex Ramsay, a product of the club's successful scholarship programme and Paul Harrison's goalkeeper understudy has also extended his contract.
Scott Quigley, the Shropshire based striker, has been offered a two-year deal following his three-year TNS scholarship and loan spell at Caersws while Matty Williams has also agreed new terms and will continue his rehabilitation following knee surgery last season.
Tom Roberts and Connel Rawlinson are both considering offers from the club, with one or two other new faces currently being looked at to complement and enhance the squad who return to training on June 1st in preparation for the UEFA Champions League qualifiers in July.
