Graham Turner quits Shrewsbury job

Graham TurnerGraham Turner has resigned from his post at Shrewsbury Town following a stuttering run of form. The Shrews have only managed to record one win from their last eight games - a streak which includes six defeats - while Saturday's 3-0 reverse at home to Rotherham marked their sixth successive loss in front of their own fans.

Turner took charge of the club for a second time in 2010, coming an incredible 32 years after his first stint way back in 1978. The 66-year-old successfully led the Shrews to promotion to League One in 2012, before preserving their status last season. However, a number of disappointing displays during the current campaign has in turn forced the veteran boss to evaluate his position in the dugout, and he has subsequently taken the decision to retire from football management.

The relegation-threatened League One club’s failure to carve out wins - just six from 27 matches - leaves them hovering dangerously above the drop zone in 20th, with just a single point separating them from the bottom four. Only two teams have scored less third-tier goals than the Shrews so far this season, with the club failing to find the back of the net in their last five games at New Meadow.
