WINGER Elliot Newby has rejected the offer of a new contract with Barrow AFC, and has joined National League North side AFC Telford United.

Newby found himself unable to break into the first team at Barrow last season, and instead spent loan spells with Workington and Altrincham.

However, AFC boss Paul Cox was impressed with what he saw from the youngster and offered him the chance to remain at Holker Street.

Newby has chosen to turn down that opportunity and will be part of the set-up at the Bucks next season.

Writing on Twitter, Newby said: "Delighted to have signed for @telfordutd massive season ahead, let's do something special."

Telford manager Rob Smith told the club's website:: “Elliot is a player I have been keen on for a while, he is an exciting winger with pace and is a player who can get us a few goals throughout the season as well.

“Elliot is really excited over the move to the club and can’t wait to get started.”
