MIDFIELDER John Leah is looking to get his TNS career back on track after signing a new 12-month deal at Treflan.
Shrewsbury-born Leah will be only 26 in August, yet is already a veteran of the Welsh Premier scene.
He made his debut for Llansantffraid in August 1996, but moved on to Newtown and Darlington, for whom he made seven Football League appearances.
Since rejoining the Saints from Latham Park in November 2001, he has become a vital cog in midfield, and manager Ken McKenna admits his influence was sorely missed after he was ruled out for much of last season with a troublesome stomach injury.
It took visits to Lilleshall and finally surgery to sort out the problem, but Leah is now raring to catch up on his fitness and play a part in the Uefa Cup ties.
An incomparable clubman, John has clocked up 96 Welsh Premier games for TNS and scored 10 goals over five seasons with the club.
