Shane Sutton is a Welsh schoolboy and Wales U17 and U23 international who joined Newtown AFC on his release from Shrewsbury Town in 2007. In May 2017, the club announced that long serving captain was to leave the club for AFC Telford United.
The defender settled quickly into life at Latham Park, scoring twice in 35 starts during his first two seasons. He spent a season at Presteigne St Andrews, but swiftly returned to Newtown in 2010, and was ever present since then.
In total Sutton totted up 228 starts, and scored 15 goals during a nine year stay that had everything from relegation battles to European success.
Speaking following the news, Chris Hughes was disappointed to lose such a key figure in his side, but wished his captain all the best. He said: "We are obviously disappointed to lose Shane, he has been a massive figure for us in recent years. He has been a fantastic servant to this football club, and he is a big loss for us."
