Dan Udoh shares his thoughts on signing a contract extension at Montgomery Waters Meadow.
Shrewsbury Town Football Club were earlier delighted to confirm that Dan Udoh has signed a two-year contract extension at Montgomery Waters Meadow with an option for a further year in the Club's favour.
The striker - known for his hard work and relentless pressing - made the move to Shrewsbury Town from AFC Telford United in 2019 and has since made 64 appearances in Blue and Amber.
The forward is delighted to have extended his stay in Shropshire and is looking forward to working with Town Manager Steve Cotterill in the coming season.
On signing the extension:
"I am delighted and it was fantastic when I had the offer," said Dan. "I like Shrewsbury a lot. I love Shrewsbury as a club and I like the people that work for the Club. It was a no-brainer for me after speaking to the Manager. The Manager is a winner and what he's done with other strikers in his career has been amazing. He wants to work with me and improve me so I can help the Club.
"I will be working with people who have so much experience in the game. They've been there and done it, and I'm trying to do the same. They are perfect to learn from and I am willing to learn as much as possible. I need to take as much from them so I can add it to my game to help the team. I am trying to improve my goal tally. It's all about improving myself. I have improved my overall game, but I need to improve my goal return."
On returning for pre-season:
"I normally give myself 10 days off and then I ease myself back in on the treadmill. I need to be prepared for the dreaded 5K runs in pre-season. This is the time for me to get ready physically and mentally. You have to be fit now for pre-season. Before, pre-season was all about getting fit. I know the Manager is only going to raise those standards.
"Football isn't the same without the fans, we have seen that this year. The fans have always backed us no matter what was happening, so it will be great for the fans to be back with us next season. When my name gets chanted, it gives me that extra 10% to keep pushing again."
