Roland Wycherley on Graham Turner's decision to step down
“I am very sad to announce that Graham Turner has resigned from his post as Manager of Shrewsbury Town FC. It is a decision Graham has made himself and the Board have tried very hard to get him to reconsider, but Graham feels that his decision is in the best interests of the club.
I wish to go on record in thanking Graham for his exemplary service towards our club both in recent seasons, when he returned to guide us successfully to promotion to League One and our highest league position in over 23 years, and for his efforts as a player and manager in the 1970’s and early 1980’s when we witnessed Championship level football at our club.
Graham has rightly achieved “Legend” status at our club and I trust that history will treat him with respect his endeavours for this club deserve. I wish him every happiness and success in whatever he decides to do next.”
There will be a further statement from the club in the morning.
