Craig Harrison and Lee Fowler
The New Saints Football Club have announced the signing of Lee Fowler.
The former Doncaster Rovers midfielder has joined The Saints on a free transfer and will wear the number 15 shirt for TNS.
Fowler began his career with Coventry City and has had spells with Huddersfield Town, Newport County and Wrexham. The Cardiff-born footballer recently left Kidderminster Harriers and will be hoping that his wealth of experience will help his new side claim a third Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League title on the trot.
The former Wales Under-21 was pleased to have joined The Saints and told The New Saints' website: ‘I am pleased to have signed and it is a really good opportunity for me to play some games. I have been speaking to Craig (Harrison) quite regularly over the past two seasons and I nearly signed for TNS last summer but the deal didn’t materialise.’
Fowler, 30, also expressed his excitement at joining the Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League Champions, ‘I am excited to start and I already knew a few of the lads here so I am really looking forward to it. I know Connell Rawlinson because I live in the same village as him. I have also played against Jamie Mullan quite a few times so I know him too.’
The 5ft7in midfielder also gave the TNS fans a clue of what they can expect to see from him and revealed that he nearly joined the Oswestry based side a decade ago, ‘I will bring composure on the ball and add a bit of experience in the midfield. I am definitely a winner, both in training and in the match, I always want to win. I am hoping to add a bit of leadership to the side. I also nearly signed for the club on loan whilst I was at Huddersfield, during when Ken McKenna was here.’
