FORMER Cherries ace Charlie Daniels has joined League One Shrewsbury Town on a short-term contract.

Daniels, 34, has been training with Cherries since his contract expired over the summer and featured numerous times for the club's under-21s in recent weeks.

And the left-back has now got himself a new club, joining the Shrews on a deal until January.

Daniels made 265 appearances for Cherries, netting 17 goals, after arriving initially on loan from Leyton Orient back in November 2011.

He played a pivotal role in the club's rise up through the leagues, helping them clinch promotions from the third and second tiers before featuring regularly in the top flight.

His game-time has been limited in recent seasons due to two serious knee injuries, the last of which came whilst playing against Manchester City in the Premier League in August 2019.

Cherries chief executive Neill Blake said: “Charlie has been an unbelievable servant for this club over the past nine years.

“What he achieved for AFC Bournemouth will never be forgotten. He played such an integral part in our most successful period and his name will forever be etched in folklore here.

“With every promotion, Charlie stepped up another level and was a consistent, outstanding performer and the model professional.

“It is emotional to see another member of that iconic team leave the club but following the injuries he has suffered over the past 18 months, Charlie needs regular game time at a strong level, and I’m delighted that this contract at Shrewsbury Town will allow him to gain that.”
