SHREWSBURY Town have loaned a second player to a Welsh Premier club with Ryan Sears joining his hometown club Newtown.
A 19-year-old central defender who can also play at right back, Sears is a product of the Shrews' youth development system and signed a professional contract last year, along with fellow Montgomery player Callum Roberts who has joined The New Saints until January.
He was Town's star performer during the Under-18s FA Youth Cup run to the fourth round last season, scoring in two of the rounds.
"Ryan is someone we have been keen on and with him being a local lad makes him a great signing," says Robins' manager Chris Hughes.
"We know he is well thought of within the club at Shrewsbury and we are delighted to have him and look forward to working with him."
