Barnett Joins Town

2 February 2015

Posh striker signs for Town on a permanent deal

Micky Mellon has swooped to bring in Peterborough United striker Tyrone Barnett to Shrewsbury Town.

The experienced striker joins the club on a two and half year deal from an undisclosed fee after choosing Town despite interest from a number of other clubs.

The 29 year old started his career in the non-league before making the step up the Football League with Macclesfield Town. At Macclesfield he easily settled into the league football and his form quickly led to a move to Crawley Town. His stay there was a short one due to excellent goalscoring form that saw a number of suitors from the higher divisions try to land Barnett. In the end it was Peterborough who took him initially on loan and then in a deal worth more than £1 million.

He's had loan spells with Ipswich Town, Bristol City and has spent part of this season on loan at Oxford United.

The weekend's win over Newport County saw Town go top of the SkyBet League 2 and the addition of Barnett will give manager Micky Mellon another excellent attacking option.
