This side can get even better, says Harrison

DIRECTOR of football Craig Harrison says his TNS side can get even better after clinching the Welsh Premier title on Saturday.

Harrison was celebrating the success just three months after arriving at Park Hall from Airbus UK Broughton and said: "We can go on from here as I believe there is more to come from these lads and we have some exciting youngsters coming through.
"It's a great feeling, that's what I came to this club for, to win things, but it's not about me it's about the players.
"They're the ones out on the pitch who win the games, they've been absolutely fantastic, the best set of players I have ever worked with.
"Bangor are a great club and their support is fantastic but it was nice to reverse the memory of last season’s painful defeat which gave them their title.
"When you start out as a manager and coach you dream about managing in the Champions League, it's a great day."
Former Welsh international Steve Evans was delighted to erase the memory of last season's final day defeat at Bangor.
"It's massive, it means everything after last year when the lads missed out on the last day of the season and to be fair it is sweet revenge this year," Evans said after his fifth title win with the Saints.
"The lads put in a great shift, we pressed them really high up the pitch and got a couple of early goals and they never really seemed to recover."
The New Saints also created a new record on their way to the crown, becoming the first side to score in every game in a Welsh Premier season since the birth of the League of Wales in 1992.
