Tommy Holmes
WINGMAKERS' boss Craig Harrison has strengthened his squad again by agreeing a two-year deal with former The New Saints' stalwart Tommy Holmes.


A regular in the Saints' ranks for 11 seasons after signing from Tranmere Rovers in 2000, defender Holmes made a total of 267 Welsh Premier appearances before being released from Park Hall, where he was the second longest-serving player.


The 31-year-old played a major part in four of the Saints' title wins, as well as winning Welsh Cup, FAW Premier Cup and Loosemores League Cup honours.

Only six domestic league players have featured in more European action than the Birkenhead-born defender, who has played in eight Champions League games, including the home and away ties against Liverpool in 2005, and nine in the Uefa Cup/Europa League.

Holmes has featured in pre-season games against Luton Town and Chester before committing to the Wingmakers today and will join two of his former team-mates, John Leah and Craig Whitfield, at The Airfield.
