First Interview | Jason Sraha

14 July 2023

Jason Sraha sat down with Shrewsbury's Town's media team after becoming our fourth addition of the week!

Jason has put pen to paper on a one-year deal at The Croud Meadow that includes the option of a further 12 months in the club's favour.

A left-footed centre-back, the defender began his career in the Chelsea youth set-up before moving on to Arsenal under-18s in 2021. 

He then spent two years with Barnsley - which included a loan spell at Guiseley who were managed at the time by our assistant head coach Marcus Bignot, before his move to Shropshire. 

ON JOINING SHREWSBURY: 

"I’m delighted to be here. I saw how high they finished last season and now I can't wait to get started.  

"A lot has attracted me to the club. They have shown a lot of interest in me – which gives you a good feeling obviously.  

"I know Marcus as well – we have a great relationship. On the pitch, tactically he is really good but off the pitch he is a great guy as well.  

"As soon as I walked through the door the gaffer and Marcus were the first people to greet me which was really nice." 

ON HIS STYLE OF PLAY:  

"I play on the left side of three centre-backs. But I like to step in and thread passes through. I like to join in with the attacking side of things as well.  

"I’m comfortable on the ball but first and foremost the important thing is making sure the team keeps a clean sheet." 

ON THE SEASON STARTING SOON: 

"It’s only a few weeks away now which is really exciting. I can’t wait to get out there.  

"The lads have been amazing with me. As soon as I walked in the building, everyone came to greet me and showed me love. You couldn’t ask for anything more."
