Notts sign Davies from Shrewsbury

Ben Davies
Davies made 127 appearances for Shrewsbury in three years

Notts County have secured the services of midfielder Ben Davies on a three-year deal from Shrewsbury.

The 28-year-old has made the move to Meadow Lane after rejecting the offer a new deal with the Shrews.

Notts manager Ian McParland said: "We managed to secure the signature of a very talented footballer and fought off some strong competition.

"Ben's goalscoring record obviously stands out, but there is plenty more to his game than just his goals.

Davies has scored 31 goals from his midfield over the past three years with Shrewsbury, and his prowess going forward is something that particularly whets McParland's appetite.

"He can get on the ball and open doors for us and his set-pieces are deadly as well. It is an exciting signing for us," he added.
