Former Shrewsbury Town youngsters Callum Roberts and Ethan Jones have penned new deals to stay at Newtown in the Welsh Premier League.

Striker Jones will be looking to continue his hot scoring run from last season after re-signing for the club. The striker signed for the club in January, and hit the ground running with six goals in eight starts.

Prior to his spell in Mid Wales, Jones played five times for the Shrews, before short spells in the English non-league system.

Roberts has re-signed for the Robins after a successful loan spell at Latham Park. The 19-year-old spent the early part of last season with TNS on loan from Shrewsbury Town, before being re-called by the Shrews.

He was then loaned to Latham Park in January, where he went on to make 11 starts and one substitute appearance, scoring one goal.

He returned to the League One side this summer, however was not given an extended contract and was released.

Hughes was delighted to have re-captured both players.

He said: "We are delighted to have re-signed Ethan, who showed is what he can do in the second phase last year. He knows where the goal is and adds more quality to the side.

"He will have a full pre-season under his belt this year, and we're looking forward to seeing him get back out there.

"We were impressed with what Robbo did last season, he was very good when he came in from Shrewsbury.”

Also penning new deals this week were the long serving Luke Boundford and winger Craig Williams.

Boundford has spent almost 10 years at Latham Park and is a much valued member of the side, and Williams, who turned 35 this year, is looking to push back into the side after an injured ravaged two years.

Hughes added: "Boundy has been a mainstay for us in recent times, provides vital goals and is always someone we can rely on so we're pleased to have him back.

"And Craig brings a wealth of experience and is fighting fit after his injury nightmare."
