Ken McKenna
Ken McKenna has committed until May 2008 [Phil Blagg].
KEN McKenna has signed a contract extension which will keep him at Treflan until May 2008.
He came to Treflan as a player in 1998 and was appointed manager at the turn of the year in season 2000/1.
A vastly experienced striker, who won an FA Trophy Winner's medal with Telford United and a Welsh Cup Winners medal with Bangor City, McKenna started his senior playing career with Poulton Victoria and then signed for Tranmere Rovers in the Football League. He won a Cheshire Senior Cup winner's medal with Runcorn before a second spell with Tranmere Rovers, then again returned to Telford United.
In his first season with Altrincham in 1990/1, he scored 33 goals in 56 appearances in all competitions and finished the season with the Robins' Player of the Year award, part of a side that went 28 games without defeat and scored in 10 consecutive games. He also managed hat tricks against Merthyr, Boston and Cheltenham.
He continued to score goals during his second season with the club, despite the Moss Lane outfit barely surviving the drop.
He then went to Barrow, Conwy (where he holds the club scoring record with 38 goals in 1995/6) and Bangor before playing a major part as a player in Saints' championship winning season.
In management he took TNS into Europe and three successive runners-up places in the Welsh Premier before clinching a league and Welsh Cup double in 2004/5.
