Shrewsbury Town have followed up the loan signing of Joss Labadie by handing New Zealand striker Kris Bright a two-year contract. Skysports.com revealed at the weekend that Bright was training with the Shrews after a stint on trial at League One side Norwich City. He impressed in a pre-season friendly against Tranmere Rovers and the 22-year-old is now looking to make his mark in League Two this season. "I'm really happy to be here and with the gaffer and his plans for the season ahead," Bright told the club's official website. "I think it will be a good opportunity to come to Shrewsbury and I'm really looking forward to the challenge. "The side is looking to play football and I think this year is a good opportunity for the club to go up." Bright had most recently been playing in Greece with Panserraikos and has also played in Holland for Fortuna Sittard and in Norway with Kristiansund.
