Jacko delighted with Demetriou signing

3 June 2014

Assistant manager in no doubts about exciting new signing

Assistant manager Mike Jackson has no doubts that new recruit Mickey Demetriou will prove an exciting addition to the Shrewsbury Town squad.
The former Kidderminster Harriers left back became the club's fourth signing of the summer following on from Ashley Vincent, Nathaniel Knight-Percival and Mark Ellis when he penned a two-year deal at the Greenhous Meadow.
Jacko revealed the 24-year-old England C international is a player that was high on Town's wanted list.
He said: "We've seen quite a bit of him and watched him quite a few times, sent people to watch him as well. He can play left back and left-sided centre back as well but more predominantly he's a left back.
"He's a good size, athletic, and he will do well for us. He's the right age and he's got the potential to improve as well and that's what we're trying to bring in." 
Demetriou spent three seasons with Kidderminster, making 122 appearances for the club after joining them from Eastbourne Borough.
He is the third defender to sign for Shrewsbury this summer.   
Jacko said: "It's completely different to what it was last year. Obviously we need a keeper to drop on top of that now but the people we've brought in are at a good age. 
"They've all played at a good level and all have the potential to go and play above so you're not trying to rebuild the back four every year. We're trying to do that with the rest of the team." 
He added he's hopeful more new signings will be announced soon.   
"Obviously, something might pop up between now and pre-season, but the bulk of the squad we want them in through the door by the first day of pre-season."
