Winfield excited by Town move

13 June 2013

Dave looking forward to new challenge with Town

Big defender Dave Winfield insists he's excited by his move to Shrewsbury Town and relishing the chance to play in League One again. 
Winfield, 25, suffered the disappointment of relegation the last time he played in this division with Wycombe Wanderers.
But he's looking forward to his new challenge with Shrewsbury having been impressed with everything he's heard from manager Graham Turner.
"I don't think there's a footballer out there who doesn't want to improve and make leaps and bounds in their career," said Winfield, an impressive performer at the back for Wycombe last season before opting to move on. 
"There was quite a lot of interest but what I want to do is play as high as I can - and Shrewsbury's a good club. 
"There's some massive clubs in this division. Sheffield United are a huge club and Wolves speak for themselves. It will be competitive and I'm sure we will do well."   
Winfield, who started his career with Aldershot, added: "I'm very excited about the move and I know a little bit about the club.
"I met the gaffer a few weeks prior to signing. Sometimes in football you get a good feeling about something and straight away the conversations went well. We hit it off and got on very well." 
Winfield was captain at Wycombe, renowned as a figurehead in the side, and stressed he would continue to demand the best from himself and his new team mates at Shrewsbury.
He's now looking forward to getting to know his new colleagues with pre-season training starting on June 26.
"I don't know any of them," he said. "Pre-season will be about gelling and I'm at that stage now where I've had a break and want to get back into it."
