Harrison delighted by players' work ethic

THE New Saints' director of football Craig Harrison believes his job has been made easier by the work ethic shown by the players he has inherited.

The former Middlesbrough defender took over the reigns at TNS from Mike Davies in January.
"The players are working really hard and have responded to the way I want to run the football club," Harrison told BBC Radio Shropshire.
"All I ask is the lads give 100% and all of them has done that."
He added: "The hours are long but I wouldn't have it any other way, this is a great club and I want to put it on the map."
Harrison was quick to praise first-team coach Carl Darlington, who he previouslyworked alongside at Airbus UK Broughton.
"We've both got the same goal but how we get there could be a little bit different but we work fantastically well together and we have a trust in each other's ability," he said.
The Saints are second in the Welsh Premier League, one point behind leaders Bangor City, who they meet at Nantporth in Saturday's live TV game on S4/C.
