Shadow Squads

Our Shadow Squads are directly linked with Shrewsbury Town Academy and run for the U13 – U16 age groups and is the final step before signing with the academy itself.

All our age groups play in the MJPL leagues with weekly games and training twice a week. The aims of the Shadow Squads are to improve players technically, physically, tactically, along with improving their confidence and attempting to make them all round better people as well.

There are numerous exit routes for our Shadow Squads, including the Shrewsbury Town Academy for those to progress into elite level football, but also to our BTEC Programme, for potentially semi-professional players or those looking to go into coaching, with the potential of becoming staff members at Shrewsbury Town in the Community.

Our Shadow Squads are invite only with trials usually taking place in the Spring.
