AFC Telford sign former Shrewsbury winger Steve Leslie

Steve Leslie

AFC Telford Utd have recruited former Shrewsbury and Wrexham winger Steve Leslie, their sixth summer signing.

The 24-year-old has signed a one-year deal after being targeted for months by Telford manager Andy Sinton.

"He's a great catch, I've been chasing him this summer like a Jack Russell," Sinton told BBC Radio Shropshire.

"Steve's a League player who will flourish at this level and getting him sends a message about Telford to the rest of the Conference."

Leslie spent six years at Shrewsbury, but was loaned out more recently to Hereford. He then spent the end of last season at Wrexham before being released.

Straight after signing his Telford contract, he pulled on a Bucks shirt for the first time to play in their final warm-up game for the new season, a 0-0 draw with a Birmingham City XI.
