Defender Signs From West Brom

AFC Telford United are delighted to announce the loan signing of central defender Saul Shotton from West Bromwich Albion.

A ball-playing defender, Saul arrived at The Hawthorns from Bury in September 2019. The 20-year-old is a regular in Albion’s PL2 side and made his Baggies debut against Charlton in the Emirates FA Cup in January 2020.

At just 16-years-old, Saul played in two EFL Trophy fixtures for the Shakers and would play four Sky Bet League One games for them at the end of the 2017/18 campaign at just 17-years-old.

Shotton trained with Albion’s first team during the summer preparations for the 2020/21 Premier League campaign and spent the first half of the 2020/21 campaign on loan with National League side Woking.

Saul made his second appearance in the Baggies first-team setup during their Carabao Cup defeat against Premier League heavyweights Arsenal in August 2021.

But the centre-back has found regular football under the U23s manager Richard Beale in the PL2, where Shotton has become a leader among his younger team-mates after regularly skippering the 23s during this season.

The 20 year old joins AFC Telford United on loan until January. Everyone at AFC Telford United would like to welcome Saul to the New Bucks Head.
