Shrewsbury Town: Club Profile

Shrewsbury Town’s relegation to the Conference in 2003 must’ve been a shock to their system, but it was short-lived; the Shrews promoted back at the first time of asking. We then leapfrogged our Shropshire counterparts with promotion into League One in 2011. But they caught up with us soon enough; going on to come close to promotion up to the Championship in 2018. For now, however, League One is their comfort zone.

Ticket Info


Facilities for Disabled Fans

Shrewsbury Town says it offers concessions for match tickets if you’re a fan travelling with a disability or impairment. But they do also say that, for assistance, to please contact them by emailing info@shrewsburytown.co.uk.

According to the Level Playing Field site, there are 20 wheelchair user spaces in the away end (North Stand) at both high and low level. Headsets are also available for those with a visual impairment, which can be collected from and returned to safety officers or stewards.

The listed contact for more information is Lawrence Ellerby, the Disability Liaison Officer / Safety Officer. You can email on lawrence.ellerby@shrewsburytown.co.uk or call direct on either 01743 289 177 or  07970 440662.


Pre-Match Pints

Just five minutes’ walk from the ground is the Wild Pig (formerly the Brooklands Hotel). It can be found towards central Shrewsbury on the other side of Meole Brace Roundabout.

One other option in the other direction is the Charles Darwin, which is 10 minutes away.

Shrewsbury Town Travel Information – Distance: 138 miles

By Road

It takes about two-and-a-half hours to get to Shrewsbury. And you can do so by taking the M1 north to Junction 19 for the M6. It doesn’t matter if you prefer to use the M6 Toll or not; you’ll be requiring Junction 10a after the Toll rejoins the old M6. At this junction, head onto the westbound M54 for Telford/North Wales.

Continue onto the A5 for Shrewsbury/North Wales. After eight miles, take the 3rd exit at the roundabout for Thieves’ Lane/B4380 towards Much Wenlock and Bridgnorth. Follow the B4380 over two roundabouts onto Oteley Road. The ground will appear on the left.

Parking

The Shrews have a number of parking options up for grabs when you drive – supposedly. Parking at the ground itself seems to be a no-go. So, you have a Park and Walk option or a Park and Ride alternative. The club’s Matchday Travel Plan sets it out so you can see if there’s one that suits you better. It also points out the streets and retail parks you ought to avoid if you want a stress-free (and fine-free) parking experience.


By Rail

Station: SHREWSBURY
Services to: BIRMINGHAM INTERNATIONAL

At two miles and 45 minutes to complete, the walk is a tad on the long side. We therefore suggest you grab a taxi. Unless you need to get your steps in?
