Newtown completed a deadline day deal by capturing Halesowen Town striker Ethan Jones.

The 19-year-old forward is a product of the Shrewsbury Town academy, and prior to that he was among the youth system at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Jones was handed a professional contract in 2015, and played a handful of appearances for the Shrews first team, before short spells on loan at Tranmere Rovers and Stourbridge.

On his release from Shrewsbury Town last summer, he signed for Southport, and following that he moved to Halesowen.

Chris Hughes is pleased he has been able to get a late deal over the line, the bolster his front line heading into the second phase.

He said: "We're delighted to get the Ethan deal done on deadline day, he is quick and powerful and will give us a different option going forward.

"We have some good options in forward positions, and it will give us some good fire power heading into phase two."

Jones' move is still awaiting international clearance, so he is unlikely to be available to make his debut at Llandudno on Saturday.
