SHREWSBURY BELONGED TO SHREWSBURY TOWN FOOTBALL CLUB AS THEY TRAVELLED FROM THE GREENHOUS MEADOW TO THE SHIREHALL VIA THE TOWN CENTRE STREETS AND THE GUILDHALL IN AN OPEN TOPPED BUS
Please see below a pictorial of the open top bus outside the Guildhall where it parked up so that the fans could see the promotion winning players and directors. It was a fantastic moment and when I went onto the bus I was met by the board of directors and manager. The bus was crowded but not one complaint. Just looking down onto the fans showed to me just how much it meant for everyone that Shrewsbury Town Football Club gaining promotion into league one.
Please enjoy the pictures, thank you.
The bus then left the Guildhall and we then left but had to get to the Shirehall before they did, now that took some doing with the amount of people walking around, but we did.
I then escorted the manager and the directors into the Shirehall where we all had a lovely meal and talked about the happy times of football and about past years as far back as 1957/8 through to the present time. After the meal the team and directors coaching staff etc all boarded the bus to return to the Greenhous Meadow where just a few hours later they had their Player of the Year award/dinner. I returned home a happy Mayor. League one here we come.
The whole event was a partnership between Shropshire Council and Shrewsbury Town Council in agreement with Shrewsbury Town Football Club.
Well done to Shrewsbury Town Football Club and the Suporters that together make up “Team Shrewsbury”.
