New signing Ashley Vincent wants to repay the faith shown in him by Micky Mellon after becoming the Scot's first signing as Shrewsbury Town manager.

The former Cheltenham, Port Vale and Colchester winger is pleased to have joined the club and can't wait to get going.

"He's shown a lot of faith in me," said Vincent. "I had a tough season last season but I've played against Micky's sides before so I think he knows what I can do. I've just got to now hit the ground running and repay the faith that he's shown in me which I plan to do."

Vincent added he quickly hit it off with Mellon after holding talks at the Meadow earlier this week.

He said: "It's happened fairly quickly. I've probably known about it over the last week or so and I came to see him on Monday. We hit it off from there. We didn't know each other as people but I know of his teams and he knows the way I play.

"After meeting it worked out well and we wanted to get it done and dusted as soon as possible which we have done.

"Now it's just about the football side and him putting his objectives out and me going out there and performing."

Vincent has been promoted twice from League Two during his time at Cheltenham and Port Vale.
