Club receive top hospitality award

4 June 2013

Shrewsbury Town's continued excellence in hospitality has been recognised nationally.
The club has developed an enviable reputation for outstanding food and service.
Executive head chef Paul Crowe and assistant general hospitality manager Oscar Santalla along with their dedicated team were delighted to receive the Directors Choice League 1 Award at The Official Football Hospitality Awards for 2013. 
Paul and the club's sous chef Ryan Leonard collected the trophy at a glittering awards dinner attended by more than 300 guests at Reading Football Club's Madejski Stadium. 

Now in their ninth year, the awards recognise the hard work done by the catering, conference and events teams at football stadia across the UK from the Premier League to League 2.  
There were nominations from fans, media and club directors.   
"This is like the Oscars for football hospitality," said Paul. "There were a lot of big clubs there like Chelsea and Aston Villa, who won the top overall award.
"It's lovely to be recognised for the hard work we have put in over the years and continue to each season.
"Clubs are nominated for providing the best matchday experience. That can be from the moment guests walk in and also include the quality of the food they eat during their visit."
This is not the first time Shrewsbury Town have been recognised at The Official Football Hospitality Awards since moving to the Greenhous Meadow in 2007.
They were also nominated twice when the club were in League 2 before gaining promotion last year.
