Lisa Bishop says the only way for The New Saints is Up

The New Saints are ready for more big matches in Oswestry after the Park Hall Stadium made its European debut.

"We passed everything Uefa threw at us, which opens the door for future games," said commercial manager Lisa Bishop after the Europa League tie with Fram.

"And with 2,000 more seats to come in our new stand later this year, we've got the capacity to grow even more."

Team manager Andy Cale added: "After borrowing other pitches, it was great to really play at home in Europe."

Cale told BBC Radio Shropshire: "This club has made fantastic strides over the past 15 years.

"This facility is second to none, and it all helps the club push on both financially and on the pitch too."
