AFC Telford signed Jordan Johnson from Newcastle Town in the summer

Out-of-favour AFC Telford United wingers Jordan Johnson and James Lawrie have both left the Bucks Head.

Johnson has joined Northwich Victoria for an undisclosed fee, while former Port Vale winger James Lawrie has signed for Altrincham.

Both players have not played for Telford in the Blue Square Bet Premier.

"I spoke to Jordan the other day. I couldn't guarantee him first team football," AFC Telford boss Andy Sinton told BBC Radio Shropshire.

"He's a fantastic lad and I think he has a bright future. But I need people capable of coming into the squad now. I couldn't guarantee him regular football."

The Telford manager is looking to strengthen his squad when the January transfer window opens, with a winger now one of his priorities.

Northern Ireland international Lawrie, has spent much of the season on loan at Blue Square Bet North side Altrincham.

He was part of Telford's promotion-winning side last season.
