Burton joins AFC Telford United

Callum Burton joins the Bucks on loan

Shrewsbury Town are pleased to announce that Callum Burton will today join AFC Telford United on an initial one month loan.

Callum made his first team debut at the end of the 2015/16 season and enjoyed a loan spell with Nuneaton Town earlier this season.

20 year old Burton has also represented England at Under 16, 17 and 18 levels.

Telford currently sit 16th in the National League North and manager Paul Hurst believes it will be a good experience for Callum.

“Logistically it works well because he can still do a lot of his training here with Danny and the rest of the ‘keepers”, Paul told ShrewsWeb.

“I think it’s important he gets games because he had a loan spell before I came to the club but he didn’t really get going in that. It’s a decent standard as well so it will be good for him.

“He’s been wanting to go out and get some games, which is what you want from younger players and Telford have suffered an injury for a goalkeeper they’ve brought in.

“We want to build up a relationship between the two clubs. I understand that there’s a rivalry, but at the same time they are a local club to us and playing at a decent standard.

“Hopefully they can stay in the league and if they do then it might be a good avenue to look at for trying to get players out on loan in future.”
