Matthew Pennington joins Town

31 December 2020

Matthew Pennington joins Salop on loan until the end of the season.

Shrewsbury Town Football Club is delighted to confirm the arrival of Matthew Pennington.

The 26-year-old joins the Club on loan until the end of the season from Premier League outfit Everton.

Having joined the Toffees in 2013, the defender has enjoyed game time in the top three divisions of English football and arrives at Montgomery Waters Meadow having spent the last three seasons in the Sky Bet Championship.

Town’s Manager, Steve Cotterill, is delighted with the acquisition and is looking forward to working with Town’s new man.

On the new signing:

"Matthew wants to play games and he has experience in the Championship. He's a good type that will get along well with our dressing room - I don't have any worries about him integrating.

"We are quite light in the central defensive area and at right back. I felt it was an area we needed to address. Matthew can definitely fulfil that. He can play right-side centre back, left-side centre back and in the middle. Anywhere in the three, he fits."
