NEWTOWN Football Club have welcomed the return of Alex Fletcher.

The talented midfielder departed Latham Park at the end of last season's curtailed campaign to join Stourbridge of the Southern Premier League.

However the former Shrewsbury Town youngster has now returned to Newtown.

It will be Fletcher's third spell with the Robins having departed in 2017 for Southport and a spell at Stafford Rangers before returning to Latham Park.

The 24 year old has also represented AFC Telford and Ross County and becomes Newtown's third signing of the month following the arrival of defender Shane Sutton and winger Lifumpa Mwandwe.
