Shrewsbury Town snap up Mark Ellis after Crewe Alexandra release

Shrewsbury Town sign Mark Ellis on a free transfer following his release from Crewe Alexandra.

Shrewsbury Town have signed defender Mark Ellis following his release by Crewe Alexandra.

The 25-year-old has agreed a two-year deal with the recently-relegated Shews, after not being offered a contract at Gresty Road.

"It's nice as I'd set myself a deadline to get something sorted and it's come a lot sooner, so that's pleasing," Ellis told BBC Radio Shropshire.

Ellis joined Alex before the 2012-13 season got underway and played a key role in the club's last two successful League One campaigns.

The defender joins Ashley Vincent and Nathaniel Knight-Percival as boss Micky Mellon gets to work shaping Town's new-look squad ahead of the new campaign.
