Shrewsbury Town re-sign Aaron Pierre

14 October 2023

Shrewsbury Town are pleased to announce we have re-signed defender Aaron Pierre on a short-term deal.

The 30-year-old first joined Salop from Northampton in 2019 and went on to make 99 appearances for the club.

Aaron, who is in the squad for today's trip to Cambridge, has spent the past few weeks training with Town and has put pen to paper on a deal until mid-January.

His arrival gives head coach Matt Taylor more defensive options after Morgan Feeney sustained a hamstring injury that will keep him sidelined for four to six weeks.

Aaron said: "I'm thrilled to be back. The fans of this club have always been amazing with me - from the moment I arrived to the moment I left they were magnificent so I'm really grateful to get the chance to play in front of them again.

"There is a board at the training ground that shows all the players who have made 100 appearances for the club and I used to look at that and was desperate to get on it.

"Unfortunately, I left having played 99 games so now I can't wait to make up for lost time and get that 100th game under my belt.

"It really is amazing to be back at a club where you feel loved so I can't wait to pull on the shirt again."

Head coach Matt Taylor said: "Aaron is a player I know very well having played with him. He also has a strong affiliation with the football club. 

"He is a man of immense character and a very good person. 

"He has signed a short-term contract to the beginning of January to give us cover while Morgan Feeney recovers from the injury he sustained during the win over Northampton. 

"He has a point to prove. And has integrated into the group really well."
