Shrewsbury have signed experienced right-back Carl Regan on a one-year deal after he was released by Bristol Rovers.

Regan, 31, started his career as an Everton trainee then had spells with Barnsley, Hull, Chester, Macclesfield and MK Dons before joining Rovers.

"We are delighted that he's signed for us," Shrews boss Graham Turner told the club's official website.

"We need a bit of competition at right-back and Carl will bring that.

"He has proved himself to us over the weeks in training so has earned the move."

Regan featured in pre-season victories for the Shrews against young Manchester United and Wolves representative sides to win a contract at Greenhous Meadow.
