Carl Winchester spoke to the press for the first time since signing on permanent terms with Salop.
Following a successful season-long loan at Shrewsbury last season during which he played 43 times, Carl signed permanent terms with the club last week.
The Irishman played regularly alongside Luke Leahy in midfield last season, but can also fill in on the right-hand-side of defence when needed.
Speaking in his first interview since returning to the club, Carl discussed coming back, the changes that have taken place over the summer, pre-season so far and the targets for the upcoming campaign.
ON IF HE'S EXCITED TO COME BACK:
"Yeah definitely. As soon as I found out there was interest I couldn't wait to get it signed and get back into the swing of things.
"We've had a long time off since I last came but getting back in and around the environment has been great.
"I really enjoyed my time here last season. I think the lads, the staff, everyone helped that out so it was a no-brainer.
"I sat down and spoke to my family in the summer and they told me to go for it so in the end it was an easy decision."
ON THE CHANGES OVER THE SUMMER:
"It's different but obviously it's still early days, we only came in on Sunday.
"I think as pre-season goes on you'll see some changes coming into the squad but to start off a lot of things are still the same like the players.
"Some of the staff are still here but obviously there's a new head coach and assistant so they'll have their ideas that they want to bring to the squad over the next couple of weeks and we'll see how that goes."
ON IF HE THINKS HE'S SETTLED AT SHREWSBURY:
"Definitely. As a player, the most important thing I think is to find a home and keep playing football every week.
"Once you're playing football every week you're happy.
"I had that last season and I'm thankful for that and for being brought to the club."
ON IMPROVING ON LAST SEASON:
"I think it's important to build on last season. We did really well so it's important to build on that and keep moving forward.
"The aim this season it to keep getting better and improve.
"The lads are here and they know what got us that success which is important. There's no reason we can't do better than that here.
"Like I said, most of last season's players are still here, the core of that group.
"Obviously you lose a few like Penno (Matt Pennington) and Benno (Elliott Bennett) but that's football at the end of the day. People come and people go.
"We just want to improve on last season.
"We played with each other last season, obviously injuries killed us but a lot of the same faces out there every week so you get that understanding of each other's game which helps a lot.
"Hopefully more of that's to come."
ON PRE-SEASON SO FAR:
"Yeah it's been tough, the first few days have been tough!
"That's what pre-season is about, laying the foundations for the season.
"Everyone has come back in good shape. We had an off-season plan to work with and the lads stuck by it and we're seeing the results out there (on the training pitch).
"There has been a lot of running, don't get me wrong, but look, we need it.
"You enjoy the time off with your family and your friends, but when you come back in here it's time to work and get ready for the season."
ON THE TARGETS FOR THIS SEASON:
"The manager came in on the first day and we had a meeting. He laid down his foundations, what he wants and what he wants to achieve this season. It's about all us players buying into it.
"He seems like a great guy and I really hope we kick on this season."
