AFC Telford hoping to get Ryan Barnett back from Shrewsbury Town

AFC Telford United are hopeful of securing a new loan deal for Ryan Barnett after Shrewsbury Town recalled the teenager for their Checkatrade Trophy clash last night.

Midfielder Barnett was among a much-changed Salop side which was knocked out of the Trophy on penalties at Port Vale.

The 19-year-old scored from the spot in the shoot-out, which Town lost 4-3 after drawing 1-1 in normal time, becoming the club’s youngest-ever player to net from 12 yards.

His inclusion came as a blow to Telford, who are aiming to reach the National League North play-offs, as they were due to have him until March, after extending his initial one-month spell.

But they are seeking to seal a new loan deal which will see him return to the New Bucks Head for the remainder of the season.

Barnett has made four appearances for Salop this campaign – one in League One, three in the Trophy.

He had played eight times in National North for Gavin Cowan’s Bucks – four as a starter, four as a substitute. He also scored in the 4-3 FA Trophy win against Farsley Celtic.
