BRAD WALKER has returned to Wrexham to "finish the job" and try to win promotion.

The 23-year-old midfielder has signed for Shrewsbury Town, managed by former Reds' boss Sam Ricketts, from Crewe Alexandra.

Walker had been on loan at Wrexham since August and went back to Crewe after Saturday's 1-0 home defeat against Dover.

But on completing his move to League One Shrewsbury, Walker has been loaned back to Wrexham for the rest of the current campaign.

Walker, unable to play for another club this season, enjoyed a successful loan spell at The Racecourse, making 21 appearances and scoring four goals.

The club has applied for international clearance with a view to Walker being available for the next National League game at AFC Fylde on January19.

Wrexham, four points behind leaders Leyton Orient, will be aiming to end a run of three successive league defeats and Walker has returned with the intention of helping the Reds clinch a place in the Football League.

“I really wanted to stay at Wrexham for the rest of the season and finish the job," said Walker.

“We are in a fantastic position and I have really enjoyed my time at the club.

"I have signed for Shrewsbury now but nothing has changed in terms of my commitment and ambitions towards Wrexham’s promotion campaign.”
