Shrewsbury Town have signed young striker John Marsden following a successful trial at the Meadow.

The 19-year-old, who had spells at Liverpool, Wigan and Celtic in his youth career, has taken part in three of the League One side's pre-season friendlies this summer.

"He's a young player with a lot of potential," Town manager Graham Turner told the club website.

The length of the Liverpool-born forward's deal has not been disclosed.
