Two more on board ahead of pre-season
Jon Taylor and Connor Goldson have agreed to the offers from Town and signed their new contracts with the club. Both were in this morning to agree the final terms and have now agreed to the new 2 year deals.
It brings to end a few weeks of uncertainty whether the promising pair would be Town players for the 2013/14 season. They both had other options but all along Town were their first choices.
Connor Goldson was the first one in this morning and quickly completed the formalities. He is now looking forward to what will be an important season for him:”I’m happy to have signed a new contract here at Shrewsbury, it’s taken a while but in the end it’s all gone to to plan.
“I’ve said all along that I wanted to stay at Shrewsbury, people have been tweeting me saying I’m going to be moving but all along I’ve said its rumours and I wanted to stay.
“It was never about money or the length of the contract it was about playing games, I’m nearly 21 now and haven’t played as many games as I wanted to so this season is about playing as many games as I can.
“I think I did myself justice at the end of last season at centre-back, hopefully i can have a good pre-season this year and really push for the start of the season.”
Winger Jon Taylor, who is now Town’s longest serving player, is looking forward to the start of pre-season training. He showed some great form and goalscoring midway through the season and is challenging himself to hit that form once again:”It’s been a good break but now I’m raring to go and get back for the pre-season training that starts on Wednesday.
“It’s a good contract for me as I really like Shrewsbury and am looking forward to playing as many games as I can and helping the club push on.
“I want to try and get back to producing the good form that I did earlier last season where I was playing well and scoring goals, it’s hard to keep that level up but it will be a challenge for me.
“We managed to retain our League 1 status last season so the challenge this season has to be to do better than that, if we can get a good start then who knows where we can go.”
