Shrewsbury Town are delighted to confirm the signing of Daniel Udoh from AFC Telford United.

The striker joins Town on a two-year deal after a prolific 26-goal season with the Bucks in the National League North.

Daniel is pleased to have joined Town and is looking forward to starting his time with the Shrews.

“I am Buzzing to be here,” said Daniel. “I can’t wait to just get started. After speaking to Fejiri and my agent I couldn’t have asked for a better place to be.

“This is a really good club and has the feel of a place going somewhere. I want to be a part of something fresh and somewhere where I can get better.

“I know how good Shrewsbury are at pushing players on – similar to the likes of Fey. I want to get better and improve my game. Here I feel like I can do that.

“For me last season has gone, it’s now about working hard with Shrewsbury and helping the team - hopefully, by gods grace, I can do that.”

The 22-year-old spent time in the Football League with Crewe Alexandra but now feels ready for the step back into the league.

“When I played Football League I was a bit younger,” said Town’s new frontman. “Now I’m older and I have learnt a lot. I have scored some goals, so now I’m definitely ready for the challenge that I am about to take.

“Now I have an opportunity, so I need to work myself into the team. It helps that I know half the team already.

“The management have told me what their plans are and what they aim to do. Hopefully, Shrewsbury is the place that kick starts my career.

“It will be good to train every day and be back into football full-time. As soon as the season starts I want to push on from there.”
