Southall set for Shrews

Southall had a glittering career with Everton
Legendary former Wales and Everton goalkeeper Neville Southall is expected to sign for Division Three side Shrewsbury Town.

The Shropshire side's assistant manager Dave Fogg confirmed that the 43-year-old is expected to move to Gay Meadow as cover for first-choice keeper Ian Dunbavin.

Mark Cartwright, the club's usual reserve shot-stopper, is sidelined with a knee injury.

"Neville's coming in to help us out with the goalkeeping situation," said Fogg.

"I think he's coming in on Monday for a couple of days a week to get him back into it and it will probably be on a non-contract basis.

"The good thing is I know him from his Everton days and I know his coaching skills so I think the goalkeeping coach could learn a lot from him as well as the young keepers. We're really pleased to have him."

During a 17-year career with Everton, Southall made 750 appearances for the club, winning two League titles, two FA Cups and a European Cup Winner's Cup. He also has 73 international caps.
