Sean Parrish returns to Shrewsbury as first-team coach

28 July 2023

Shrewsbury are pleased to announce Sean Parrish has returned to the club as first-team coach.

The former midfielder first joined Town as a scholar back in 1989 and also enjoyed spells as a player with Doncaster and Northampton. 

A vastly experienced coach, Sean has spent the last five years working as the assistant manager of Wolves under-23s. 

He said: “I’m delighted to return to Shrewsbury – it's where I began my career and is a club where I have many fond memories. 

“For me, this is a great opportunity to come back into first-team football and I’m really looking forward to working with the head coach, Matt Taylor. 

“I also know Marcus Bignot (assistant head coach) really well from our Telford days. 

“Because I have come from an academy background, my big passion is developing players and making them better. 

“And we have some excellent young footballers at the club who have a lot of potential so I’m really looking forward to working with them and helping them to improve.

“Ultimately, though, football is about winning matches. That is what fans want so I’ll be doing everything I can to support Matt and the players with the aim of winning as many games as possible.” 

Head coach Matt Taylor said: “I think when you look at Sean’s career, he has an exceptional understanding of what it takes to develop young players. 

“And he also has plenty of experience working in a first-team environment. 

“He will definitely help us with our young players whilst also adding his in-game knowledge to an already talented group of staff. 

“Having met him on three different occasions, I instantly liked him.  

“He is an infectious character and he has played for the club before so understands what it means to the supporters – I am extremely happy he has decided to join the first-team staff.” imagevploi.png
