Niall Ennis on joining Town

Young Wolves striker delighted to have joined Shrewsbury

27 July 2017

Shrewsbury Town’s new signing Niall Ennis is looking forward to his first loan-spell away from Wolves.

Ennis joined Town on a season-long loan yesterday and took part in his first training session this morning.

ShrewsWeb caught up with the striker after training and he was delighted to be at the club.

“I’m happy to get the opportunity and I can’t wait to get started”, Niall said.

“It’s an opportunity for me to express my talent and prove to my parent club and to Shrewsbury that I am good at football.

“It’s really close to home so I don’t have move out and I’ve played against Shrewsbury before, so I know the club and it was an easy decision to come here.

“It’s a good club here. The players and the staff have made me feel really welcome. The facilities are good and I feel like I’ve settled in well.”

Niall has played a number of games for Wolves Under 23s, but he now feels ready to make his mark at senior level.

“I’ve represented England at Under 16s, 17s and 18s and hopefully I can represent them this season”, said Ennis.

“I played for the first-team at Wolves in pre-season last season, but I think this move will help me strive on and push further.

“If you look around the world there are a lot of players that are younger than me that are playing regularly, so I see this as a good opportunity to get some real game time and score goals, which is what I like to do.

“Under-23s is competitive, but when you are playing in front of bigger crowds you start to feel the importance of it. You are playing with players who are fighting for their next contracts, so everyone’s battling in every game and every training session to impress.

“I think I can step up to it and I think it will improve my game to play as a man and play against men.”

Niall is now looking to settle in at Shrewsbury and is hopeful of scoring goals at League One level.

“I like to think that I’m good with the ball”, said Niall.

“I like to come deep, I like to run into the channels and in behind. I’ve got pace and I like to drift wide at times. When I was younger I played quite few positions, so I understand different styles of play and different formations.

“I’m a striker, so scoring goals is my bread and butter. That’s what I am expected to do and that’s what I hope I can show to everyone.”
