Town’s community gathering

Following their heart-breaking defeat to Liverpool in February’s FA Cup replay, Shrewsbury Town FC are due to hold their annual Community Day on Saturday 7 March.

Jamie Edwards, CEO at Shrewsbury Town in the Community, explained that the event allows the charity to showcase their projects directly to supporters, which spreads awareness of their work in Shropshire. He said, “These varied projects all centre around the core mission of using the power of sport to inspire and engage with the local community.

“We have lots of sessions planned around Montgomery Waters Meadow on the day, including boys’ and girls’ development centres and Soccer Schools. These sessions are completely free, but participants must register in advance using the sign-up forms on our website.”

Teachers will also have the chance to network with their Teacher CPD taster event, where they can find out more about how Shrewsbury Town in the Community can help schools to improve PE delivery and provide other core curriculum support. Supporters will be able to donate to the charity on the day with a Text to Donate number. Visit for more information.
