Taylor unveiled as Shrewsbury head coach

Shrewsbury have confirmed Matt Taylor is their new head coach.

It is the ex-Portsmouth, Bolton and West Ham midfielder's first managerial role since his eight-month spell at Walsall came to an end last February.

Speaking to the club's official website, he said: "I’m delighted. When you come to the stadium, when you look at the infrastructure behind the football club – there is nothing (I feel) other than a burning desire and excitement.

“I’m very aware the football club has a successful playing style – something that has worked when you look at the finish last season. I think it was the second-highest finish for 34 years. 

“So there is a lot that is going right at the football club. So, what do I want to bring? 

“I hope to allow the players to really express themselves. There are some exceptional footballers here and part of my role is to give them a platform and a structure so they can go and express themselves and entertain our loyal supporters."
