Glyn Price

11 November 2022

The Chairman, board and staff of Shrewsbury Town are all deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Glyn Price, one of our most passionate and well-known supporters.

Glyn, who first became a Town fan in the early 1990s, announced last month he had been diagnosed with bowel cancer.  

Alongside following the team home and away, Glyn was a regular at Supporters Parliament meetings and was passionate about improving the matchday experience at Montgomery Waters Meadow.  

Glyn was well known for launching the Blue and Amber Fanzine and co-hosting the Salopcast podcast.  

He was also instrumental in reforming the away supporters team and the launch of Smithy’s Bar.  

Alongside his work for the club, Glyn was a keen fundraiser for the Shrewsbury Town Foundation and, among many other things, cycled 120 miles from Montgomery Waters Meadow to Stadium MK earlier this year. 

Shrewsbury Town would like to pass on our deepest condolences to Glyn’s wife Anna, his son Rory and his daughter Elsa as well as all his other friends and family members at this incredibly sad time.  

Brian Caldwell, chief executive of Shrewsbury Town, said: “Everyone at Shrewsbury Town is devastated to lose one of our own. 

“I got to know Glyn really well, especially through the Supporters Parliament in which he was always a regular attendee and committed to helping the club improve all aspects of the matchday experience.  

“He was extremely passionate about all things STFC and will be sorely missed by us all. All of our thoughts are with his family and friends at this extremely sad time."

Jamie Edwards, chief executive of the Shrewsbury Town FC Foundation, said: “Glyn has always been an advocate and supporter of the Shrewsbury Town Foundation. 

“An example of his commitment was demonstrated earlier this year when he took part in a gruelling 120-mile bike ride from Montgomery Waters Meadow to MK Dons.  

“In doing so, he helped the charity surpass its fundraising target and raise essential funds for community projects. 

“Glyn has always been on hand to support the foundation in researching stats and digging into the history of the club. He has also shared the foundation's work through the Blue and Amber Fanzine. 

“Everyone at the foundation is so grateful for Glyn's support throughout the years. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this incredibly sad time.”
