Skipper moves on

Adam El-Abd leaves the club by mutual consent

30 June 2017

Shrewsbury Town can confirm that defender Adam El-Abd has left the club after it was mutually agreed that his contract would be cancelled.

El-Abd was made Club Captain last season and made a total of 34 appearances in all competitions last season, scoring twice.

Adam didn’t feature as much as he would have liked during the second half of the season, but Town manager Paul Hurst paid tribute to his professionalism.

“Adam started when I first came in, scored that wonder goal at Southend and did well initially”, said Paul.

“Then I brought Toto in and in time he found himself out of the side, but in fairness to Adam he trained extremely well, was always available to me, came on in a few games and contributed in keeping clean sheets in games.

“We had a good chat at the end of the season and I just felt like I couldn’t promise him the game time that I think Adam wants and probably deserves realistically. He came back in and he was fully aware of the situation and I wish him well.

“He’s been fine around the place with me. He’s a good pro, he looks after himself, but I think he’s getting to the age where he doesn’t need to be sat around as part of the squad, I think he wants to in the team playing regular football and I’m sure he’ll do well at his new club.”

We would like to thank Adam for his hard work and dedication during his time at the club and wish him well for the future.
