AFC Telford United defender Shane Sutton has joined Newtown AFC.

Sutton had been captain of the National League North side until earlier this season.




He leaves the Bucks to rejoin his former club, with Telford commenting that they had ‘reluctantly’ allowed him to move on.

Manager Gavin Cowan told the club’s website: “It’s obviously a blow for us to lose a player like Shane at any time but especially at a time when we have a small squad. That being said, we have to respect Shane’s decision, especially when it revolves around work and family in this current climate.

“I know it has hurt him also but it’s something he has to do, and there’s no other club he would’ve left for. I’m proud to have been the go-between in originally getting Shane to the club and I’ve been proud to have him as my captain over two-and-a-half years.

“Shane won’t be a stranger to the New Bucks Head and we wish him nothing but the best moving forward.”
