Mat Sadler On Leaving Town

7 May 2019

Shrewsbury Town can confirm that Mat Sadler’s appearance against the Saddlers was his last for the club.

The defenders contract is set to expire at the end of the month with the club opting not to extend.

Mat gave his thoughts on the matter in his final post match interview on the concluding day of the season.

“Unfortunately my future isn’t at Shrewsbury Town,” said Mat. “If it was up to me it would be but it isn’t.

“I won't be at Shrewsbury Town unfortunately. I have a lot to thank in terms of people who have got behind me and people that have helped along my journey.

“I have many fond memories and I have good relationships here – with the Chairman and the CEO.

“There are some good people here and it will always be a club that I will be fond of and a club I will always continue to look at.”

Despite confirming the end of his Town career, Mat feels his time on the pitch isn’t over as he looks for his next challenge.

“I’m not retiring yet,” said Mat. “There is plenty of legs left in me and I refuse to retire on the back of not playing very much.

“That determination hasn’t left me. I am desperate to continue achieving and desperate to be playing as high as I possibly can.

“Leading the team out twice at Wembley last season has to be my highlight. I was proud and privileged to be the captain on both of those times.

“Leading the team every week has been an honour and I feel as though this isn’t the end of my journey at Shrewsbury Town in some other capacity.”
