Evo-Stik League Premier club Stourbridge have announced the loan signings of striker Bradley Reid and midfielder Chris Gallagher.

Both join the Glassboys on initial one-month loan deals and will be included in the squad for tomorrow`s trip to Matlock Town.

Reid, 22, came through the youth ranks at Vanarama National League side Wrexham and his impressive showings at a young age earned him a move to Wolverhampton Wanderers in September 2013 for a reported fee of £200,000.

He couldn’t quite break into the first-team picture at Molineux but did make an appearance in the EFL Trophy during the 2016/17 campaign.

Reid also spent time out on loan whilst at Wolves, re-joining Wrexham twice whilst also having two spells at AFC Telford United.

He left Molineux last summer before signing for National League North side Tamworth.

The forward, who has played for the Wales under-19 and under-21 sides, has netted 6 goals for the Lambs this season and now arrives at the War Memorial Ground hoping to get back on the goal trail.

Also joining Stourbridge is Northern Ireland under-19 international Chris Gallagher, who turns 19 later this month, and he arrives from SkyBet League One side Shrewsbury Town.

Originally from Belfast, the midfielder has been with the Shrews for three years and signed his first professional contract in June 2017.

He is yet to make his first-team debut but has been a regular for the club’s youth sides and has also represented his country up to under-19 level.

Gallagher is no stranger to the Evo-Stik Premier, having spent time on loan with league rivals Stalybridge Celtic earlier this season.

The youngster made six appearances for Celtic between the end of December and early February, helping them to wins over Lancaster City and Stafford Rangers.
