Harry Burgoyne on joining Town

31 January 2020

Harry Burgoyne gives his thoughts on joining Town.

Shrewsbury Town Football Club earlier confirmed the signing of Harry Burgoyne from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The 23-year-old shot-stopper has signed a short-term contract at the Montgomery Waters Meadow.

Harry is pleased to have joined Salop and is looking forward to representing his home-county club. He said: “I am absolutely delighted. It’s always been a club I have looked out for with it being my local team.

“The club looks like it’s going in the right direction so I’d love to be a part of that. I want to help the club be successful. I have signed a short-term deal but I would be delighted to cement my place here.

“I want to learn from Brian, I want to learn from Sam and all of the staff here. I have worked with Sam before with him being at Wolves - I can’t wait to get going.”

As well as playing at every age group for Wolves, including the first-team, Harry has spent a number of seasons out on loan gaining experience. The 23-year-old feels that experience will put him in good stead in Shropshire.

“Coming off the back of an injury at Plymouth, I had to be resilient and keep working hard,” said Harry. “There is always someone after your spot; you always have to be working hard.

“At Falkirk, it was about learning a different way of playing. Learning to play in different countries is a difficult thing – I’m glad I went out there and got that experience on board.

“As soon as Ryan Giles heard there was a chance of me coming here, he said I had to go. He told me it’s a great club and all the lads are great. I’ve had a lot of messages in the last couple of hours from friends and family, everyone is buzzing.

"The manager has been really positive about the move and has told me it’s an opportunity to re-establish my career and help move the club forward.”
