Club legend has passed away
Shrewsbury Town have been saddened to hear about the passing of club legend Ken Mulhearn.
Ken has had an association with Shrewsbury Town since he joined the club in 1971 from Manchester City.
He went onto make 370 appearances as a goalkeeper for the club and was part of our promotion winning squad in 1978/79, before leaving to join Crewe Alexandra in 1980.
He continued to live locally and until very recently he has worked alongside our commercial and hospitality teams on matchday.
Ken was one of the initial 10 legends associated with Shrewsbury Town to be inducted into our Hall of Fame in 2011.
Ken passed away peacefully in his sleep on Tuesday 13th March. Ken will be greatly missed as a husband, father and grandfather.
Funeral details will be released in due course and the family have asked that any donations should be passed on to Parkinson’s UK.
Shrewsbury Town chairman Roland Wycherley spoke on behalf of the club.
“Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family and friends at this sad time.
“Ken was a true Shrewsbury Town legend on the pitch and was a very popular person around the club and town.
“He will be remembered fondly for his performances in a Town shirt and for being part of the side that helped the club to what is now the Championship.
“He continued to work around the club on matchday and will be greatly missed.”
