Former Newtown striker Jason Oswell has completed a move back into the football league with League Two side Morecambe.

Oswell, 25, hit 50 goals in 94 appearances for the Robins, including a memorable 91st-minute winner against Maltese outfit Valletta in the club's 2015 Europa League campaign, but he departed for Stockport County last summer after three seasons with the club.

Oswell will face off against former New Saints defender Connell Rawlinson in League Two this season, Rawlinson having joined Port Vale for an undisclosed fee at the start of the summer.

The Nantwich-based hitman scored 25 times while at the Edgeley Park outfit, earning himself a player of the year award, and he was reportedly the subject of strong interest from Conference National outfit Wrexham and fellow League Two side Port Vale.

Morecambe boss Jim Bentley said: "Jason has had an impressive couple of seasons. He’s proven to be a top goalscorer and now with full-time football we are confident he will do it at Football League level.

"He’s a good player, very hungry and a focussed individual and is eager to be a success."

Oswell began his career as a product of the Crewe Alexandra youth academy before moving up to the Scottish Premiership with Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

He also enjoyed brief spells with Rhyl and Airbus Broughton.
