TRANSFER: Shrewsbury defender Junior Brown agrees to join Coventry City

Editorial Correspondent 6th Jun, 2018 Updated: 6th Jun, 2018

Coventry City Football Club have reached a deal to sign Shrewsbury defender Junior Brown.

Personal terms have been agreed on a two-year contract and the 29-year-old will complete the transfer on July 1, when his contract expires, Coventry City said today.

The club adds he had turned down The Shrews’ offer of an extended stay at The New Meadow.

Shrewsbury narrowly missed out on promotion to the Championship in a League Two campaign where they were thwarted at the last hurdle at a Wembley play-off final against Rotherham United.

The left back started his career at home town club Crewe Alexandra, and has played for Fleetwood Town, Oxford United and Mansfield Town.

He is the Sky Blues’ third signing in recent weeks after the signings of midfielders Reice Allassani from Dulwich Hamlet and Zain Westbrooke from Brentford.

The CCFC website states: “Brown joined Shrewsbury in June 2015, and quickly established himself as first-choice left back. Making 108 appearances and scoring 7 goals, only injury at the start of the 2017-18 campaign restricted the fans’ favourite adding to his impressive total.”

Manager Mark Robins said:

“I am very pleased to bring Junior to the club and that he has chosen to accept our offer, having also had other options on the table too.

“He is a player with much experience at this level and is strong both defensively and in attack too. We look forward to him joining us in July and adding further quality to our squad.”
