Two-year deal for Sadler

Mat Sadler commits his future to Shrewsbury Town

30 May 2017

Shrewsbury Town are delighted to announce that Mat Sadler has signed a new two-year deal with the club.

Sadler has been an almost ever-present since Paul Hurst joined the club back in October 2016 and crowned Player of the Year at the 2016/17 awards ceremony.

Mat has made over 100 appearances for Town across two spells and he was pleased to have sorted out his future.

“I’m chuffed to bits”, Mat said.

“I’m delighted to get it sorted, delighted to know that my futures here for the next two years and already you are thinking about the next season now.

“You are thinking about getting back into preseason, you are thinking about working your socks off, so to know that I will be doing it here at Shrewsbury, which is all I ever wanted to do, I’m chuffed to bits.”

Mat has been involved in two relegation scraps in his last two seasons with the club, but he is determined for that not to happen next time around.

“When I got to 100 appearances around Christmas time I said that I don’t want to stop there”, said Sadler.

“I want to be looking at the next milestone with the club because I love playing here. I love playing in front of the fans. I especially love the management team that we have and I want to play for them and I want to succeed for us.

“We shouldn’t be looking as a club that can bounce between League One and League Two. I want to be part of making this club look at the higher parts of this league and looking into the next league, so I’m delighted to get the two-year deal sorted and looking forward to progressing.”

Sadler turned 32 back in February, but he still feels capable of making an impact at League One level.

“It is a club that is close to my heart and I want to achieve here and hit milestones in my own career here”, smiled Mat.

“Age is irrelevant to me. I look after myself and hopefully I’ve shown last season that age is completely irrelevant in how you can play.

“All that is in my mind is that I train every day, I can be available for matches and long may that continue.”
