Date of birth
Shrewsbury Town pulled off a major coup when they signed Stefan from Barnsley for an undisclosed fee in August 2017.
Payne had previously enjoyed a loan-spell with Shrewsbury during the second half of the 2016/17 season, scoring two crucial goals as Town secured their League One status.
A regular scorer in non-league, Payne’s career really took off when he moved to Dover Athletic, where he scored 43 goals in 83 games.
It was his form for the South Coast side, which attracted the attention of Barnsley, who signed him in 2016.
He went onto make seven Championship appearances for the South Yorkshire side before joining Town on a two-year deal.
Stefan was mainly used as a substitute in the 2017/18 season, but still became top-scorer, scoring 14 goals.
