Shrews bag Smith on loan
Shrewsbury boss Kevin Ratcliffe has strengthened his squad ahead of the festive programme with the loan signing of Reading defender Alex Smith.

The 26-year-old left-back has moved to Gay Meadow for a month following injuries to Ian Woan and Andy Thompson and Leon Drysdale's suspension.

"He is an experienced, quality player," Ratcliffe told his club's website.

Smith joined Reading from Port Vale in July, 2001, having previously played for Chester City, Huddersfield Town and Swindon.

However, the former Everton trainee has made just one appearance for the in-form Royals this season.

Smith was made available for transfer by Reading at the start of the season, is match-fit and turned out for Reading reserves in midweek.
