Young Blues striker Akwasi Asante played the final 14 minutes of Shrewsbury Town's 3-0 pre-season defeat at home to Galatasary on Saturday.

The 20-year-old finished the 2012/13 campaign at Greenhous Meadow and will continue his development with the Shrews for the start of the new season having returned on an initial one-month youth loan. 

Asante, who penned a new one-year deal during the summer, has made one senior appearance for Blues having joined the club at the age of 13.

Meanwhile Blues left-back Amari'i Bell played the first-half of Nuneaton Town's 4-1 pre-season defeat to Coventry City as the 19-year-old made his first appearance since making a six-month youth loan move to the Conference National side.
