Town to tempt prolific striker
Quinn was the boss at Northwich when McNiven spent the 2002-3 season there, grabbing six goals. Dave Cooke, Quinn's assistant then and now, told the Shropshire Star: 'We know what he can do. He scores goals and we rate him highly'.
He cofirmed that they were 'very interested' in capturing the 26 year-old forward who banged in 26 goals last season, including two against the Shrews.
There are reports in Lancashire that McNiven will sign a new deal if the terms are right, but the temptation of League football could be too much for the journeyman striker.
