The New Saints have announced the signing of striker Adam Roscrow from League One outfit AFC Wimbledon for a club-record undisclosed fee.
Roscrow, 25, is a familiar face to Cymru Premier fans, having spent five successful years at Cardiff Metropolitan University, scoring 34 league goals for the club.
The striker was a key part in the Archers side that defeated Bala Town on penalties to qualify for the Europa League.
During his time at the club, Roscrow was also capped twice by Wales C, scoring in a 2-2 draw with England C.
The attacker also has experience in the Cymru Leagues with Neath, Llantwit Major and Pontardawe Town.
Roscrow departs Plough Lane having scored twice in 21 appearances for the Dons.
“I’m delighted to join TNS, and to come to a club where the manager wants you, is a massive bonus. The ambition, as a club, and the quality of players in the squad also attracted me,” said the striker.
The New Saints’ chairman Mike Harris said, “This will be the first, but not the last significant signing either. We’ve been prudent as a club, and as we take advantage of the current financial climate, we want to continue to build, not just for The New Saints but also Welsh football as a whole. We have come so far in the last twenty years but there’s still a long way to go.
“Adam Roscrow’s signing also sends out a signal to potential investors. Why not invest in Welsh football? You get more for your money and there’s a greater chance of European football.”
Manager Scott Ruscoe said, “We are very happy with the signing of Adam Roscrow, which further strengthens our attacking options.
“A goalscorer who knows the league well, who’s hungry to progress and is a very good team player as well.”
