Aaron Wildig pleased to be part of Town's future

13 May 2014

Contract clause kicks in and Aaron on board for next season

Aaron Wildig is looking forward to next season as a Shrewsbury Town player after a clause in his contract in which he would be offered a new deal if he played a certain number of games was activated.

Wildig played enough games last season, 33 in all competitions, to ensure he remains a key part of the Greenhous Meadow squad. 

"I'm very pleased to be part of the club next year," said the midfielder. "There was a bit of confusion over the last few months over what was going on with it.

"I actually didn't realise until a few weeks ago when I spoke to Jacko that it was in the contract if I made so many starts in the League.

"I'm delighted and hopefully we can have a strong season next year and get back into League One."

Wildig felt his performance level in a Shrewsbury shirt last season was the best it's been - and now he wants to keep improving.

He said: "I played more than 30 games last year, the most I've played in a season. It was obviously disappointing to be relegated but on a personal level it was probably the best season I've had so far for consistent performances. Hopefully next year I can kick on and do well.

"I didn't particularly do myself justice with my performances in the first season in League One, but playing in the centre of midfield consistently I think I put in some better displays.

"Hopefully next year I can do the same and add goals because I missed a lot of chances last season when I could have had eight or nine goals and that makes your season a lot better." 

Wildig is now looking forward to the chance to recharge his batteries before aiming to impress the club's new manager Micky Mellon.

"I've got a few weeks away coming up and then you've got to get fit to make a good impression on the new manager," he added. "Everyone needs to come back as fit as they can to go into pre-season and impress him."
