Elliott Bennett re-joins Salop!

11 July 2023

Shrewsbury Town are pleased to announce Elliott Bennett has put pen to paper on a new one-year deal with the club.

A hugely popular figure at Croud Meadow, Elliott returns having been released by the previous management team at the end of last season. 

The 34-year-old first joined Town in June 2021 following successful spells with Blackburn, Brighton and Norwich. 

As well as impressing on the field, Elliott has also proven to be an inspirational figure away from the pitch and was recently named a community champion by the PFA for the work he has done supporting the Shrewsbury Town Foundation. 

On his return to the club, Elliott said:

“I'm buzzing, I'm really, really, happy to be back.

"I met the chairman (Roland Wycherley MBE) and (director of football) Micky Moore at the stadium and then spoke to the manager (Matt Taylor).

"Everything they said was all really positive so I couldn't wait to come back. I'm delighted to be here and have another season at my home county club."

Head coach Matt Taylor said:

“Elliott is an exceptional professional who has a strong affinity with the club and the fans – however there is far more to him coming back to the club than that. 

“Elliott brings immense quality, he brings leadership and above all else he is a very good person. 

“Both myself and the coaches are very much looking forward to working with him, he is a player who has played at the highest level and someone who will also help our young players within the squad.”
