Goldson, "It was an incredible feeling.”

26 April 2015

Connor happy to have helped Town

Connor Goldson was ecstatic after Shrewsbury secured promotion by defeating Cheltenham at Whaddon Road. The defender paid tribute to the manager and the fans for the part they played this campaign:“I said after last season I wanted to help get this club back into league One straight away and thankfully we have been able to do that. Cheltenham gave us a really difficult game. They worked so hard today so it is sad to see them go down. The passion the fans showed was amazing, when they mobbed us at the end it was an incredible feeling.”

“Our fans are brilliant, they pay a lot of money to travel around the country to support us every single week. Wherever we go our fans turn up so they have been a massive help. The gaffer has done a great job of rebuilding and he has brought in some quality players which has been a massive boost. He was the main reason why I decided to stay here last summer. His confidence gave me a real belief that we would go up and we have ended up doing it in style by scoring the most and conceding the least.”

The 22 year old is hoping to finish off the season as champions but feels the most important thing for the club is promotion:“We will give everything against Plymouth to try and win the game and snatch the league title. Burton have been great all season and have rarely slipped up so credit to them if they do end up winning. The aim at the start of the season was to win the league so we really want it but if Burton take it the main thing is we are promoted.”

The Cheltenham game saw Shrewsbury extend their clean sheet record this season to 23, an achievement the Englishman is proud of:“Extending our clean sheet record is brilliant. We said before the game if we get a clean sheet we will be promoted and we managed to do it. It was a scrappy game today, the pitch wasn’t great so getting the win and not conceding is a nice feeling.”

Goldson plans on celebrating promotion over the weekend but will be fully focused and ready for the week of training and securing what could be a title clinching three points against Plymouth“We've get Monday off so I will go out and celebrate on Sunday, but we will be hard in training again on Tuesday to make sure we are prepared for Plymouth.”
