Shrewsbury Town striker Andy Mangan has joined Tranmere Rovers for an undisclosed fee.

The Liverpool born player, has re-joined his former club after only leaving back in January of this year. After losing his regular place under former Tranmere boss Gary Brabin, the 30 year old left the Birkenhead side and signed an 18 month deal at the New Meadow ground.

He went on to score 5 goals in 29 games for the League One side, but has now swapped League football for a return to Tranmere and Non League. He is also reunited with his former Shrewsbury boss Micky Mellon, who took the helm at Prenton Park last month.

Mangan has a proven track record in the Nation League, having scored over 20 goals during spells at Fleetwood Town, Wrexham and Forest Green Rovers.

Tranmere currently occupy a play-off place and are 4 points off top spot. Mellon will be hoping his new signing will be able to score the goals to help push for their automatic promotion spot.
