Defender Jermaine Grandison returned to action yesterday playing more than an hour as Shrewsbury Town reserves beat Wrexham 5-3 at the Greenhous Meadow.

Grandison has missed Town's last two games after limping out of the trip to Carlisle two weeks ago with a hamstring injury.

But he was handed a start alongside fellow first-teamer Dave Winfield in the heart of Shrewsbury's defence yesterday.

And manager Mike Jackson is hopeful he, midfielder Dave McAllister (ankle) and Luke Summerfield (thigh) will all be back in full training in the next few days.

He said: "If we can get all of those three back in full training by the end of the week that will be a big step forward for us."

Grandison and Winfield were both withdrawn from yesterday's game just after the 60 minute mark with the score 3-1 to Town.

Striker Tom Bradshaw also did his cause no harm by netting a brace in the win.

First team youth scholar Josh Ginnelly also grabbed the headlines with an impressive second-half brace of his own.

And head of youth coaching Bernard McNally said: "I was really pleased with him. He looked electrifying at times when he ran at players."
