McKENNA RULES OUT LLOYD-WILLIAMS MOVE
TNS boss, Ken McKenna, has ruled out a move for legendary Bangor City striker Marc Lloyd-Williams.
The former Southport, Stockport County and Halifax Town ace was put up for sale by the cash strapped North Wales club to raise funds for squad re-strengthening next season.
Welsh Premier rivals Aberystwyth Town and Rhyl are expected to lead the chase for the former Wales B international who amassed ten goals in just 14 appearances in 2003.
With former club mate Simon Davies already in the bag, McKenna said: "We struggled up front last season but we will not be rushing to sign a striker.
"We have been in early negotiations but the current set of strikers still have my faith."
John Toner, Justin Perry, Nicky Ward and Mike Wilde shared 29 goals as the Saints lost out on the championship last season while Steve Anthrobus, now released, managed a solitary strike.
However McKenna said his side would improve next season and backed his under-fire strikers to find their form.
"Obviously we want to further strengthen the squad but we already have some great strikers at TNS."
