Leon Clarke joins Salop on a one-year deal.
Shrewsbury Town Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Leon Clarke.
The striker joins Town on a one-year deal after leaving Premier League outfit Sheffield United earlier in the summer.
Sam Ricketts is pleased to have signed the experienced forward and is looking forward to working with another attacking option.
“Leon is a player I know well,” said Town’s Manager. “He knows a few of the lads here already which is good for everyone. He came down and saw the facilities and was amazed at the set up.
“He’s a great acquisition for the Club. He’s got a vast goal-scoring history and he played in the Premier League last season with Sheffield United. Before that, he helped Sheffield gain promotion in another successful season.
“He’s scored a number of goals at a high level and the most important thing for me was that he’s still got the desire and hunger to be successful – that’s vital for us. He also brings some aggression to the top line and we wanted a proven goal-scorer to help us win games.”
