Pre Stevenage | Taylor Perry

11 August 2023

Midfielder Taylor Perry met with the media ahead of our League One clash at Stevenage.

The summer recruit has enjoyed a fine start to this Town career with Taylor putting in an excellent display against Cheltenham last weekend before then scoring at Leeds.

Speaking to the assembled media, the 22-year-old talked about how well he has settled into life at Shrewsbury since arriving from Wolves.

And the midfielder - who is known as TP to his team mates - also revealed he will be stepping up to sing a song tonight as part of his initiation.

ON SCORING HIS FIRST SHREWSBURY GOAL: 

“It’s always nice to score but to score my first goal for Shrewsbury was a special feeling. 

“And to do it away at Leeds, in front of 35,000 fans in a big atmosphere – it's definitely a day that I'll remember for a long time.” 

ON HOW HE’S SETTLED IN: 

“I’ve settled in really well, the lads have been brilliant with me. We've got a great bunch – including all the staff as well. 

“We just want to push on now the season has started. We started with a win, I’ve settled in nicely and I just want to keep my form going and kick on. 

“It can be hard coming into a new club. I had been at Wolves all my life, this was my first permanent move away. 

“So to settle in as quickly as I have is credit to the lads really, they have all welcomed me really well as have the staff.  

“This is a good club for me to really push on for the next stage of my career.” 

ON HIS INITIATION: 

“We’ve just been talking about that actually. We have got that tonight because we are travelling down to Stevenage today. 

“A few of the lads will be singing tonight so I have to get ready for that. I’ll have to pull something out the bag. 

“I normally go JLS but I think I need to switch it up because I’ve done that a few times. I think I’ll go with something else tonight.” 

ON WORKING WITH MATT TAYLOR AND HIS STAFF: 

“Matt is obviously a great manager. He is a really good guy, he’s down to earth and he will tell you the truth. 

“I’ve really enjoyed working with him and I can’t wait to keep pushing on. 

“Whatever he wants me to do, I will do that and I’ll always give my best. It’s been really positive.” 

ON STARTING BOTH OUR GAMES SO FAR: 

“When I came in I knew I had to hit the ground running. 

“The season arrived quickly and there is no time to rest. I just have to keep pushing now and keep working hard to get better.”
