Hard work whilst on trial pays off for Jordan
Jordan Clark is delighted to have signed for Shrewsbury Town after impressing Micky Mellon during a spell on trial.
The former Barnsley midfielder said he has settled in quickly at the club and is now excited to have the chance to show what he can really do.
Jordan said: "It's been a great two and a half weeks, three weeks, coming in as a trialist. The lads and the manager have made me feel really welcome so I couldn't have asked for any more than that.
"Now I'm just looking forward to kicking on and looking forward to the season starting."
Jordan said he was grateful to the manager for giving him an opportunity to come to Shrewsbury having got to know him when Micky was assistant manager at Barnsley.
"Without him being here I don't think I would maybe got the chance to come here," he said. "I've got to be really thankful for him so I'll thank him later when I see him!
"I know Micky and I know what he wants, how he wants to play so I know what he's thinking. I know if you play and do what he wants then you'll be successful and I think the club will be successful this year."
Jordan also revealed he has family in Shropshire so he knew a bit about the club before joining Shrewsbury.
He added: "I've got family down here so I've got a lot to live up to now I've signed here. I've got family that live in Market Drayton which is about half an hour away and my dad's family have been season ticket holders here for a long time.
"It's funny how it's come about but I just can't wait to get started now to be honest. I'm really looking forward to it."
Jordan feels his best position is in the centre of midfield and he likes to get forward as much as possible.
"I think my best position is centre midfield," he said. "I like get on the ball as much as possible and just pass and move, get forward, score goals, create lots of chances, and just be a threat to other teams."
