Time at Club:
Shrewsbury Town are managed by John Askey who left his position at Macclesfield in order to take charge of the Shrews, signing a three-year deal in May 2018..
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.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Shrewsbury Town collect wins versus Southend United & Charlton Athletic while suffering adverse results at Luton Town, Burton Albion, Charlton Athletic & Bradford City. Draws against Portsmouth, Bristol Rovers, Doncaster Rovers & Blackpool has seen them show mid-table form at best.
