AFC Telford United are delighted to announce the loan signing of Ryan Barnett from Shrewsbury Town.
The 19 year old joins the Bucks on loan until the end of the season and will join up with the rest of the squad at Lilleshall Sports Centre this evening for training ahead of Saturday’s fixture away at Curzon Ashton.
Barnett spoke to the club website this morning once the paperwork was completed ahead of his return back to the New Bucks Head.
‘It feels good to be back. I’ve kept in contact with some of the boys and watched a few games this year and I’m buzzing to get back, in amongst it with the lads and playing regular games again and enjoying winning football matches.
Obviously, on a personal level I hope I can emulate the performances I put in last year for the club but more importantly try to go one step further than we did last year and aim even higher up the table. It’s an opportunity for me, again to show not only to Shrewsbury but everyone what I know I am capable of and have a positive second half to the season.
Last year I felt I had a good connection with the supporters and all of the staff, and I shared their disappointment when we couldn’t end the season with the promotion that we deserved. I always felt wanted by them and appreciated so this was a major factor in my decision to come back here when I was presented with all of the options of where to go.’
Boss Gavin Cowan was thrilled to get Ryan back for the season.
“It’s great to have Barney back especially as we both feel there is unfinished business to be dealt with. He will be another key element to our rebuilding process and I look forward to seeing him shine”
Everyone at AFC Telford United would like to welcome Ryan back to the New Bucks Head.
