Time at Club:
Shrewsbury Town are managed by Sam Ricketts who left his job at Wrexham to replace John Askey at the Shrews.
Having been elected into the Football League Division 3 North in 1950, Shrewsbury managed to gain promotion to the Third Division in the 1958-1959 season and they were a mainstay of the lower echelons of the Football League.
One of the Shrews' biggest moments came in the 2003 FA Cup when they gained the plum draw of Everton. The fans packed into Gay Meadow and an Everton side, with a youthful Wayne Rooney, managed to defeat the Merseysiders 2-1 with Nigel Jemson scoring the winner late on. However, their FA Cup dreams were shattered in the next round when they were comfortably beaten by Chelsea.
However, it was their league form that was the problem and the unfortunatley suffered relegation and were now looking for a return to the Football League. But, it didn't take long for a return to the professional scene as they managed to get promoted through the play-offs and ventured back into League Two.
Numerous draws but few defeats has seen Shrewsbury Town enjoy a strong run of results. Defeats against Doncaster Rovers & Rotherham United are the only black marks on a run that has seen them amass wins against Bristol City, Blackpool & Coventry City while sharing the spoils versus Liverpool, Fleetwood Town, Lincoln City, Bristol City & Bolton Wanderers
