Beckles joins Shrewsbury

22 August 2017

Defender Omar Beckles has joined League One side Shrewsbury Town for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old signed for Stanley last year after leaving Aldershot and was a regular in the side which finished just outside the play-offs.

Beckles scored three goals last season and grabbed an opening day goal in the victory over Colchester.

“Shrewsbury have been interested in Omar for quite a while and, after talking to the player at length, he decided he wanted to go,” said Stanley boss John Coleman.

"With him only having a year left on his contract, we had to take several things into account, the main factor being his desire to play somewhere else."
