Rosler, Holloway and Hasselbaink in the running to replace Hurst at Shrewsbury

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 29 May 2018, 08:59

Shrewsbury boss Paul Hurst is set to sign on the dotted line and become the new Ipswich Town manager after the clubs agreed compensation, meaning a new vacancy will open up in League One.

It’s a double whammy for Shrewsbury who will lose their highly talented gaffer just days after they agonisingly missed out on a place in the Championship following an extra-time defeat to Rotherham in Sunday’s third-tier play-off final.

But while Hurst will now be working up in the Championship with The Tractor Boys, Shrewsbury will be forced to orchestrate another promotion charge with a new man at the helm.

It’s not an exaggeration to say that whoever comes into New Meadow has huge shoes to fill following Hurst’s superb 19-month spell, during which he transformed the club from relegation strugglers to automatic promotion challengers.

Supporters will now be hoping that Hurst's departure doesn't result in a mass exodus of players, which can often be the case when a manager leaves in the summer.

Focus has swiftly turned to the Next Shrewsbury Manager Market which is now up and running. And as you’d expect there are a whole host of gaffers in the frame at this early stage in proceedings...

Former Fleetwood boss Uwe Rosler and ex Carlisle gaffer Keith Curle are the early pacesetters at 5/1, with the duo followed by another out-of-work trio in Stuart McCall, Ian Holloway and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, with all five managers losing their job last season.

Speaking of the Job Centre, next up we have Brian McDermott, Robbie Neilson and Gary Caldwell who will each no doubt be interested in the new Football League job, while Sol Campbell is a 20/1 shot to make his first foray into management.
