Jordan Shipley spoke to Salop for the first time as he arrived for pre-season.
The 24-year-old midfielder signed for Shrewsbury at the start of May, leaving his boyhood club Coventry City behind for the first time.
Shipley discussed his first impressions of the club, pre-season, and how it felt starting a season at a new club for the first time in his life.
On his first impressions of Shrewsbury Town:
“I’ve been buzzing and waiting to get started for the past three or four weeks now and I’m really ready to get going and hopefully we have a good season.
“They’re [the facilities] great. It’s a big space, there’s a big gym, a big changing room, and the canteen is lovely as well so it’s yeah, great.
“I’ve played against Luke Leahy a couple of times during our careers and Penno [Matt Pennington] was on loan at Coventry so I remember him from there but yeah, they’re a great bunch of lads and I’m looking forward to getting going.
On himself as a player:
“I like to get in the box, score goals, create chances but also do the other side of the game as well.”
“Every pre-season is tough – we had a few tough seasons at Coventry as well – but I am looking forward to it and seeing how hard we can run. I’m looking forward to getting away [to Spain] and getting some good work done out there. I’m not really a fan of the heat but I’m looking forward to getting away.
On his first pre-season away from Coventry:
“It’s taking a little bit of getting used to but all the lads have welcomed me really well and the drive up with Marko [Marosi] and Luke [Leahy] was good too. We’ve got a few more of those coming but I’m really looking forward to seeing what happens [this season].”
