Highly respected coach joins to replace Wayne Evans
Bernard McNally is set to become Head of Youth Coaching at Shrewsbury Town, replacing Wayne Evans in this important role.
Shrewsbury-born McNally progressed through the youth ranks with his home town club and, as a stylish midfield player, made nearly 300 appearances for Town before joining West Bromwich Albion for a tribunal-set fee of £385,000 in the summer of 1989.
He also won five caps for Northern Ireland while playing for Shrewsbury and was part of their squad for the 1986 World Cup Finals in Mexico.
Bernard has established himself as a highly respected coach, previously managing AFC Telford United and he is currently manager of Welsh Premier League club Newtown.
Wayne Evans has decided to move on and the club would like to thank him for his hard work and dedication during his time at the Greenhous Meadow.
Steve Reece will be stepping up to the position of Academy Manager.
We will have more on this story when Bernard officially takes up his new position.
