Scotty goes second on Euro list

SCOTT Ruscoe has gone second on the all-time list of Welsh Premier players who have appeared for their clubs in European competitions.

His starting line-up appearance against Bohemians on Tuesday night was his 20th, surpassing the achievement of Andrew York and second-only to Gary Lloyd, who started 29 times for Barry Town, Carmarthen Town and Llanelli.
Ruscoe, 32, appeared twice for Newtown in the Uefa Cup in 1998 before signing for Chester in the summer of 2000.
Since joining the Saints in January 2002, he has made eight Champions League appearances, eight more in the Uefa Cup and two in the Europa League, including both legs of the ties against Liverpool and Manchester City.
Called up to the Welsh semi-professional side that won the Four Nations trophy in 2004 and a member of the league's dream team in 2004/5 and 2005/6, Scott is also the record Welsh Premier appearance holder with The New Saints.
