Teenage Shrewsbury striker Tom Bradshaw has been rewarded for his three first-team goals in the closing weeks of the season with a professional deal.

Bradshaw, 19, who has been linked with West Ham, scored twice on his debut at Crewe and another against Morecambe.

He is one of five youth-team players to have signed professional contracts.

"This season we have offered first-year professional contracts to more youth-team players than ever before," said Shrews chairman Roland Wycherley.

Defender Danny Taylor and midfielder Jon Taylor also pulled on a first-team shirt for Shrewsbury this season, making five appearances between them.

Goalkeeper Hakan Duyan and defender Connor Goldson have also signed up.

"Tom Bradshaw, Danny Taylor, Jon Taylor and Hakan Duyan have graduated from our scholarship programme and Connor Goldson has been awarded a professional contract midway through his scholarship agreement," Wycherley added.

"This follows on from last season when Harry Hooman and Andre Gray were awarded first-year professional contracts.

"I am delighted with the progress of our youth system."
