Sounds like he's a big unit at 6 ft 2 and pacy.

Brilliant signing, if it is.
Was once thought to be the next big thing in defence for Man U.
Still only a young lad and got pace to burn.

Seen him play a few times and a little bit shaky but definite potential there.

Wasn't him that slipped at their place and let Fej in for the first goal?

An interesting fact doing the rounds is that he broke Darren Campbell's 100m schoolboy record a few years ago. Safe to say he can shift!

He was my favourite player in L1 the season before last. Probably not quite as good last season. Loads of potential to kick on though. Played on the right of a three or at right back at Shrews quite a lot. He’s f**king rapid.

Only 22yr old,got 81 games for Shrewsbury and been involved with England youth.I like us signing these type of players for us on contract,young,hopefully might get even better with us,even if we move up a league and a possibility of selling on if they flourish.

Best news is the Shrewsbury fans saying he can defend but is no passer. We got our priories right here. The ball should be treated with as much disdain as the poor bas**rd opposition striker, when it comes to centre backs. Looking forward to this guy giving some leadership at the back.

Few comments off Facebook;

- Not sure how to say about him tbh. Has a fair few mistakes in him, passing a bit off last season too. Works hard, but will play well alongside another confident CB.

- Defending good.. passing shocking.. Will give away 3 pens a season ⚽

- Has a good month then a bad month IMO

- Solid defender, works hard, tracks back, ok in the air, but yeah passing game is pretty poor. Very young player though so lots to learn

He’ll be the fastest centre back in the football league. Brilliant signing, should be the perfect partner for big Tom

Cameron John?  Also rapid and looked really good in his loan spell at Centre Half.  We could play a really high line without fear of being caught out.  Exciting times

Should have us sorted at centre back now you'd think.  Defence wise we need a left back then it's further forward there is work to do.  Looks a good signing though I'd say.

Unless the plan is to develop John at left back. Plenty won’t like that but he is not going to start if we play two centre backs.

If he is, I would pay his train fare. Never want to see him facing us again after the last game.

CJ, the second fastest player at DRFC after John Taylor.

Know a lot of people hate the idea but we could be well set up for a back 3 next season. If John and Williams play either side of Anderson we'd have so much pace back there to follow strikers into midfield or to cover wing backs which is where most 3s fail.

Also not overly concerned with the comments from the Shrews fans. He's still really young for a centre half and taking mistakes out of the games comes with experience. Also Anderson was hardly much of a passer of the ball when he came here. Does alright for us now though.
