Alex McQuade is looking forward to the prospect of starring for Shrewsbury after signing a one-year deal at Greenhous Meadow.
The versatile defender has trained with Graham Turner's squad in recent weeks, impressing the Shrews boss while featuring for the reserves following his release from Bolton.
The 20-year-old is yet to make his professional debut but is hoping to make an impact next season.
He told the club's official website: "It's exciting to have something sorted out for next season.
"I spoke to the manager and everything seems really positive. I can hopefully crack on now and get a few games under my belt.
"I've played a few games in the reserves already so got to know the staff and the players. They've all been welcoming."
