The Shropshire Star have announced today that Shrewsbury Town have completed the free transfer of winger Ashley Vincent, who has become new manager Micky Mellon’s first signing.
The 28 year-old was a free agent after leaving previous club Cheltenham Town at the end of last season. Vincent has twice been promoted from League Two, once during his first stint at Cheltenham and once with Port Vale. He has also played for Colchester United and was a youngster at Wolves.
Mellon is very excited to be linking up with Vincent and describes him as an exciting talent. “He’s someone I’ve been aware of since I was at Fleetwood and he’s a really pacy, exciting attacking player with great technique,” he said.
“He can play on both wings and down the middle. He will fit right into the way we want to play at Shrewsbury and I’m delighted to get him on board. When I first spoke about coming to Shrewsbury, he was one of the first players I spoke about bringing in.”
As of yet there is no more news on any more arrivals at Shrewsbury, but there are a few that the club are waiting on to make decisions.
