Town team up with primary schools to reward pupils
Shrewsbury Town have teamed up with Shropshire primary schools to reward dedicated pupils who have achieved a 100 per cent attendance record in the current school year.
The club's Community Sports Trust have contacted every primary school in the county to recognise pupils who have not had a day off since returning to school last September.
The youngsters will be invited to a special ceremony at the Greenhous Meadow next Thursday afternoon between 4.30 and 6pm where they will receive a certificate from manager Micky Mellon and members of the Town first team squad.
Jamie Edwards, Shrewsbury Town's Community Trust manager, said: "We feel achieving a 100 per cent attendance record in a school year is something well worth celebrating.
"We thought it would be nice to recognise the pupils by inviting them to the Greenhous Meadow and giving them a special experience.
"We very much look forward to welcoming lots of youngsters to the club next week."
If you would like to register a youngster you know who meets the 100 per cent attendance criteria for next week's ceremony, please send an email to Jamie.Edwards@shrewsburytown.co.uk
