Shrewsbury Town Football Club

Shrewsbury Town FC was founded in 1886.

Like many long established clubs Shrewsbury Town has seen both highs and lows in its playing fortunes. Its first proper ground was established near Racecourse Lane it moved to Gay Meadow in 1910 where they remained until 2007 when they moved to their current home the New Meadow.

Shrewsbury’s border connections has seen it play in both the Welsh and English Cups. Although operating mainly in the middle and lower divisions, Shrewsbury has had more than its fair share of giant-killing performances in cup tournaments and seen off many a top division side.

It has also produced a number of premiership and international players including England’s goalkeeper Joe Hart.
