"It is a great gesture from Shropshire Council and Shrewsbury Town Council to host this civic reception and parade for the club. To be able to go around Shrewsbury and celebrate our wonderful achievement with all our supporters will be a fitting end to a successful season.

"I hope many Shrewsbury Town supporters will come out to see the players, coaches and myself and make this another historic and enjoyable day in the club's history."

– Graham Turner, Shrewsbury Town Manager
