The New Saints won the JD Cymru Premier title for a record 15th occasion following a 0-0 draw away at Connah’s Quay Nomads on Friday night. 

Craig Harrison’s side travelled to Deeside knowing that a point would be enough to secure the trophy and a goalless contest gave them what they needed. 

Nomads goalkeeper Andy Firth was called into action on several occasions to keep TNS out, with JD Cymru Premier top scorer Declan McManus most often being denied. At the other end, Connor Roberts was rarely troubled. 

It means that The New Saints have confirmed the league title before the end of March for the second consecutive season as they are 17 points clear of the second-place Nomads with five matches left to play. 

TNS have only lost one of their 27 JD Cymru Premier games so far this season, winning 21 of them. They have scored 89 goals and conceded just 13. 

Craig Harrison said: "It's brilliant. It's one that we are going to cherish because we have worked hard for it. It's what we wanted, it's what we strive for and it's what is expected. But it is still very sweet when it actually happens."

The champions will lift the JD Cymru Premier trophy following the conclusion of their final home game of the season against Connah’s Quay Nomads on Saturday 22 April.
