Town Manager Steve Cotterill thanked the Town squad and acknowledged all of the hard work from his players during the season.

On Harry Burgoyne: 

"Harry has been the number two goalkeeper this year, but he’s been a fantastic support mechanism for Marko and the other young goalkeepers and we’re delighted that he’s extended his stay by a further year."

On Josh Vela and Elliott Bennett agreeing new deals:

"After discussions yesterday, I'm delighted that we’ve agreed a new deal with Josh. He’s a great lad who was obviously in the team when I first arrived at the club and no matter whether I’ve been here or when I was away, he’s always given maximum effort.

"Elliott is a fantastic character not just in and around the dressing room, he is also an excellent professional when he crosses the white line as well. He gives everything and has shown incredible fitness levels for his age and thoroughly deserves another year."

On the lads let go:

"The easy part is offering the contracts, the difficult part is sitting down individually with all of those lads that have now left us who have been a part of it since I’ve been here. It was a really tough day, sitting them down and saying this is where it ends but obviously their career doesn’t end here, I’ll be looking out for them. Any help I can give them going forward whether that’s recommendations or personal phone calls I'll be there. I did the same for the lads last year. Obviously, I’ve known these lads a little bit longer as well which makes it even harder.

"They’ve all done their bit for me right from the start. I could say lots of superlatives about all of them individually and about how they were yesterday in the room and I genuinely wish them all the best, I really do. I hope they go on and continue their careers and in some cases with a couple of chats, they may be looking at their coaching badges."

Shrewsbury Town would like to place on record our appreciation to all individuals who have represented Salop and would like to thank them for all of their hard work and dedication during their stay in Shropshire.
