Watch the full interview with Vernon on Shrews PlayerHD.

“First and foremost it was great for the team," said Vernon.

"We believed we could win. We worked hard in training and it has paid off on the pitch and there is no better feeling as a footballer.

“It was strange out there because we felt like we started so well but then we conceded.

"We never panicked and kept calm and when the chances came we stuck them away.

“It was really nice to get on the scoresheet.

"As a forward there is no better feeling than scoring a goal and helping your team win so it was fantastic to do both.

"I had an injury a few weeks ago so I was surprised I managed to last the whole game but I am glad I did.

"Personally the season starts now for me. I am determined to stay in the team so I need to keep producing performances that will keep me in the starting line-up.

"I really enjoy being at Shrewsbury so I will do all I can to stay here."

Vernon, 31, was making his first start of the season for Shrewsbury and insists he will fight to keep hold of his place in the team.

The forward bagged Town's third goal of the night in the Sky Bet League 1 clash at Bramall Lane, adding to efforts from Sullay Kaikai, Ian Black and James Collins.

Scott Vernon was delighted get his first goal of the season and help Shrewsbury Town to a 4-2 victory at Sheffield United on Tuesday night.
