After suffering heartbreak in May’s League One play-off final, Shrewsbury Town have continued to lay the foundations for next season by bringing in winger Alex Gilliead.
The 22-year-old arrives at the New Meadow on a free transfer after leaving Newcastle United, a club he had been with since the age of 16.
Gilliead, who has become John Askey’s fourth signing of the summer, told Shresbury’s official club website, “It’s the first big move in my career.
“It had to be the right one. I had a look at a few other offers that I had but I thought this was the most appealing one and the one that fitted me right.
“Coming off the back of a great season last year the Club is looking to do it again and I want to be a part of that.
“I want to show everyone what I can do and start my career with the best Club I think I can do it with.
“I spoke to the manager last week and he was quite similar with my views with what we wanted to do and how I want to play.
