DEFENDER Phil Baker will bring down the curtain on a 12-year stint with The New Saints after Sunday's Welsh Cup final against Bala Town.

The 34-year-old, who has not ruled out a move to another Welsh Premier club, is an ex-Tranmere Rovers player who joined Bangor City before a move to Conference outfit Exeter City.

He went on to play for Aberystwyth and also Droylsden before rejoining the Citizens, where he made 28 appearances in 2004/5 before signing for TNS.

Named in the Welsh Premier dream team for 2006/7 and again in 2014/15, Baker was loaned to Aberystwyth in March and has made a total of 346 (+124) Welsh Premier appearances, scoring 12 goals.

He is also the current record holder for European appearances, playing a total of 31 games and scoring twice, including a crucial away goal at Cliftonville in 2011 which saw the Saints progress to the second qualifying round.
