East Thurrock United have signed former England C defender Frazer Shaw.

Accrington Stanley recently agreed to cancel Shaw`s contract by mutual consent, with the youngster seeking to move back down south.

Shaw agreed a move to Stanley after not being offered a new deal by their League Two rivals Leyton Orient at the end of last season.

He made thirty appearances for the O`s in all competitions, although he only featured sporadically under Kevin Nolan before missing the end of the season through injury.

He made the switch to Stanley in June and signed a two-year deal with the Lancashire outfit, but unable to break into the first-team and with a club statement citing Shaw’s homesickness, the two parties agreed to move on.

Originally with West Ham United where he progressed to the under-21 squad, Shaw was released by the Hammers at the end of the 2013/14 season when he dropped into non-League football with firstly Billericay Town and then, most successfully, with Dulwich Hamlet.

His form for Hamley earned him a call-up to the England C squad for the match against the Republic of Ireland under-21s in June 2015 and he played the full 90 minutes of the 2-1 win for Paul Fairclough`s side.

He was unable to add to his one cap though as he was snapped up by Orient soon afterwards.
