Micky delighted to make Ashley Vincent his first signing for Town

Micky Mellon is delighted to have completed his first signing as Shrewsbury Town manager after bringing in exciting former Cheltenham winger Ashley Vincent.

Mellon is looking forward to working with Vincent having admired the 28-year-old for some time.

"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."

Vincent has twice been promoted from League Two, during his first spell at Cheltenham and also with Port Vale two years ago.

He has also played for Colchester United after beginning his career as a youngster at Wolves.  

Mellon now hopes other new arrivals will soon follow. 

He said: "We've got quite a few that we're waiting on to make decisions."
