The New Saints complete the Welsh Premier and Welsh Cup double for the 6th time in their history (3 trebles, 3 doubles) after their 0-3 win over Connah’s Quay on The Rock, the home of Cefn Druids.

In front of a crowd of 1,256 at Cefn Druids’ Rock stadium, The New Saints beat Welsh Cup holders Connah’s Quay 0-3 to win their 7th Welsh Cup.

Greg Draper opened the scoring after six minutes for the WPL Champions before Ryan Brobbel put TNS further ahead with an in-swinging free-kick beating Connah’s Quay keeper John Danby at the far post.

Brobbel scored his second of the game, again a crossed free-kick beating John Danby – and again poor goalkeeping on his behalf.

The Nomads forward Andy Owens was sent from the pitch after two yellow cards, wrapping up a disappointing afternoon for the cup holders.

This is The New Saints’ 7th Welsh cup victory, with the club winning the trophy five times in the last eight years.
