Ashley Vincent: Shrewsbury sign ex-Port-Vale & Cheltenham man

New Shrewsbury Town signing Ashley Vincent

New Shrewsbury Town manager Micky Mellon has made his first signing by bringing in winger Ashley Vincent, following his release by Cheltenham.

The 28-year-old ex-Wolves trainee has twice been in promotion-winning teams from English football's fourth tier.

He did it with Cheltenham and again at Port Vale in 2013 but, after turning down the offer of a Vale deal to rejoin Cheltenham, last term did not go well.

"I had a tough season last season," Vincent told BBC Radio Shropshire.

"But I've played against Micky's sides before so I think he knows what I can do. I've now just got to hit the ground running."

Mellon added: "He's someone I've been aware of since I was at Fleetwood. He's a really pacy, exciting attacking player with great technique. He can play on both wings and down the middle.

"When I first spoke about coming to Shrewsbury, he was one of the first players I spoke about bringing in."
