GT confirms he'll be in charge for the 2013/14 season
The Chairman and the board are delighted to announce that Graham Turner will continue in his position as manager of Shrewsbury Town Football Club.
Roland Wycherley, the chairman, said: “In a period where football clubs are seeing so many tough challenges throughout the leagues we continue to endeavour to provide stability and continuity within Shrewsbury Town Football Club.
"We only have to look at local clubs for example Chester and Wrexham, good friends of ours, to see how clubs can suffer from previous poor management or an over zealous approach in order to gain success in a league putting the future of the club at risk.
"Through a combination of the board’s strategy and Graham’s knowledge and experience, we have secured our position in League 1 without compromising Shrewsbury Town Football Club, an achievement which we are proud of.
"League 1 has seen a demanding season with so much being learnt, but whatever the challenge Graham has never failed to show determination and to express a positive attitude, attributes which have contributed to the club finishing 16th in League 1, our highest position for 23 years.
"Graham is one of the most experienced and well respected managers in English football. He shares our passion to continue to strive for the success of Shrewsbury Town and achieve our ambition to play Championship football."
The board would like to publicly thank Graham, his coaching and backroom staff for their hard work throughout the season.
Graham Turner thanked the Chairman and the board for their confidence in him and is looking forward to the challenges ahead in next season’s league and cup campaigns.
“As with the Chairman and board, I would also like to acknowledge the significant contributions of the coaching, scouting and medical teams and thank them for all of their hard work," he said.
"In addition I would like to give a special thank you to everyone who came to support us through the season at the Greenhous Meadow and to those who have travelled throughout the country.
"This commitment is very much appreciated. I look forward to seeing you next season.”
