Curtis Main: Set for short loan-spell

The 21-year-old striker will join fellow Boro team mate Adam Reach, also on loan, at New Meadow and could be considered when the Shrews host Coventry at the weekend.

Main began his career at Darlington before making the short trip down the A66 where he scored 5 times in 25 appearances for Tony Mowbray's men prompting Graham Turner to secure the young forward's temporary signature.

"We've bolstered the squad now with Curtis and he's a very exciting prospect to have in our ranks," the Shrews boss told the club's official website.

"The difficulty now for me is that Curtis won't be in Shrewsbury until later on Friday so the players haven't met him or trained with him so do I play him or wait until he's trained with us properly?"

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
