James Rowland Post AFC Telford

20 March 2019

James Rowland reflects on Town's thrilling 4-3 win on penalties against AFC Telford United.

Town brought the Shropshire Senior Cup back to Shrewsbury last night after a 1-1 draw required a thrilling penalty shoot-out which ended 4-3 to Shrewsbury. Archie Elmore scored the first goal of the game in the 10th minute before Marcus Dinanga pulled one back for Telford in the 25th minute. 

Town's captain James Rowland spoke to Shrewsweb after the game. 

"It's a great feeling to get the win," said James. "We had to battle throughout the game but in the end it paid off with the penalty shootout. 

"It could have been a difficult night with the pitch, they had some older players as well. But we battled hard and got the win in the end. 

"We went out with a point to prove, we haven't got many wins recently, so tonight we proved everyone wrong that said we can't win." 

Rowland stepped up to take one of the penalties for his side and did well to keep Town's hopes alive as he calmly converted his penalty. 

"It's just about gone in, it's a goal so we'll take it. It's a weird feeling I think you've got to try and be confident."
