Town youngsters to face Premier League club Stoke City in build up
Shrewsbury Town's youth team will play six pre-season games, including a match against Premier League Stoke City, in the build up to their next Youth Alliance campaign.
Head of youth Wayne Evans and his assistant Pete Wilding, who will shortly welcome the new intake of first year scholars to the Greenhous Meadow, have arranged five away games and a home clash against Coventry City to aid their preparations.
The Shrewsbury youngsters will travel to Burton Albion, Crewe Alexandra, Cheltenham Town, Stoke City and Welsh Premier League Newtown, who are managed by former Gay Meadow favourite Bernard McNally.
