Sign and Dine A Big Success

27 June 2014

Micky, Mike and Danny serve up great evening’s entertainment

Shrewsbury Town’s inaugural Sign and Dine took place last night at the Greenhous Meadow with manager Micky Mellon, Mike Jackson and Danny Coyne meeting the fans.

The trio started the evening in the kitchen helping head chef Ryan Leonard and his team prepare the evening’s menu.  Micky and Jacko were also on hand to help the waiting staff deliver the excellent food to the waiting public.

The menu was all locally sourced with garlic mushrooms on toasted herb ciabatta to start followed by chive buttered chicken, fondant potato, leek cream and seasonal vegetables.

After they meal was finished it was down to the questions and answers from the floor with new CEO Matt Williams acting as an excellent host for the evening.  His northern charm was perfect to bounce off the banter from Micky and his coaches and helped make it a night to remember.

After an evening of talking and meeting the fans Micky still had time to sit down with ShrewsWeb for a quick word on the evening.

“It was a fantastic night and a wonderful chance to meet the fans as I haven’t had the opportunity yet”, said Micky.

“You find out how they feel, some of the questions and some of the statements they made to shows they love their football club and those will stick with me, and that makes me more determined to succeed.

“I now need to follow through on my promise to put out a team together that represents these people.

“It was really humbling at times, and me, Michel and Danny will put that team together for them and we can’t wait to get started.”

The work with Chef Ryan and his team in the kitchen is available to watch on ShrewsPlayer and YouTube and was great fun.  It shows again the Great Spirit that is building throughout the club as Town start the pre-season training to prepare the club for the fight back.

Micky added:” It was brilliant in the kitchen and it was what a football club should be all about, fun and having a laugh.

“To get into the kitchen and work alongside our kitchen people and to have some great banter with them was excellent.

“I’ve really enjoyed the evening and it helps to get that positivity going all through the football club.

“I’ll be telling the players about what happened tonight and the stories about what went on.”
