Louis Dodds leaves by mutual consent
Shrewsbury Town can confirm that Louis Dodds has left the club by mutual consent and gone onto join Chesterfield.
Dodds joined Town from Port Vale in the summer of 2016 and went onto make 62 appearances in all competitions, scoring 12 goals.
Last season Louis was Shrewsbury’s top scorer with 10 goals, but he has found his opportunities more limited this campaign, appearing mainly from the bench.
ShrewsWeb spoke to Paul Hurst about the decision to allow Louis to move on.
“I spoke to Louis on Monday morning and there’d been some interest from Chesterfield”, said Hurst.
“I phoned Louis and had the conversation that I didn’t really want him to go but at the same time I wanted to try and be fair to someone that’s been top drawer since I came to the football club.
“It felt like the right thing to do, so I left that with Louis and having spoken to Jack Lester over there it became apparent that they would like to do something.
“We wish him well. He’s genuinely one of the nicest lads that you will meet in football, he’s got a very good sense of humour, he will be missed in the dressing room and on the pitch.
“He hasn’t had as many minutes but I would have happily had Louis as part of the squad and I genuinely mean that, but we wish him well at his new club.”
Shrewsbury Town would like to thank Louis for all his hard work and dedication during his time at the club and would like to wish him well for the future.
