Crewe   0 - 3   Shrewsbury

Crewe 0-3 Shrewsbury

Crewe 0-3 Shrewsbury

Top scorer Dave Hibbert's first goal since January and two from debut boy Tom Bradshaw ended Shrewsbury Town's horror run of six straight defeats.

Alex began well, with Steven Schumacher hitting a post, but the Shrews took the lead when Jake Simpson swung in a cross and Hibbert headed in at the near post.

Steve Leslie and Jamie Cureton both hit the post before Bradshaw, 17, fired in from 30 yards with four minutes left.

And the teenager side-footed home his second from close range in injury time.

Shrewsbury-born second year scholar Bradshaw was only introduced from the bench 15 minutes from time as replacement for on-loan veteran Jamie Cureton, who has not scored in 10 games since arriving from Norwich.

But the local boy took just 10 minutes to mark his introduction to league football, scoring with what was almost his first touch as he controlled a throw-out from home keeper David Button, cut inside and fired into the top corner.

Town remain 12th in League Two, but their first win since 27 February lifts them back to within six points of the play-off places.


Shrewsbury Town manager Paul Simpson told BBC Radio Shropshire:

"Tom Bradshaw's first goal is a fantastic strike. We've defended a set-piece well, released it quickly to Tom, he's chanced his arm and it's worked.

"What I keep saying is to have a shot, as you don't know what might happen. He's hit it cleanly as he could and it's ended up in the stanchion.

"I always say the first goal is the hardest to get in your career but you always remember it. I'm sure that he and his family will always remember that.

"For his second, he's in the right place for a right goal poacher's goal following a great run from Benjamin van den Broek down the right-hand side.

"I'm absolutely delighted for Tom. He's worked extremely hard and has a smile on his face every day he trains with us."
