SAINTS' central defender Jimmy Aggrey has signed a two-year contract with the club.
Jimmy came to TNS pre-season from Yeovil and has impressed with some superb defensive displays as well as showing attacking intentions - he scored his first Welsh Premier goal against Newtown on Saturday.
Aged 24, Jimmy was a regular in Chelsea's youth team before joining Fulham, where he was one of Mickey Adams' last signings before the arrival of Kevin Keegan and Ray Wilkins.
Released in the summer of 1998, he had a trial with Shrewsbury before joining Torquay United, where he made almost 100 league appearances.
After spells at Dover Athletic, Taunton Town and Harrow Borough, he joined Yeovil Town and made 10 appearances last season prior to Yeovil winning the Conference, before being released in May.
He originally signed non-contract for Saints, but will now be a permanent and powerful addition to the squad, giving manager Ken McKenna some interesting defensive options alongside the other central defenders on the club's books - Steve Evans and Tommy Holmes.
Boss extends contract
Some more good news for the Saints is that Ken McKenna has extended his contract by two years, keeping him at Treflan until May 2006.
Something of a legend in non-league circles, Ken McKenna came to Treflan as a player in 1999 and played a major part in the club's title victory.
He was appointed manager at the turn of the year in season 2000/1.
A vastly experienced striker, he won an FA Trophy Winner's medal with Telford United and a Welsh Cup Winners medal with Bangor City.
In management he has already taken TNS into Europe and two successive runners-up places in the Welsh Premier.
