Boss keen to stay with Shrews

Mike Jackson hopes to stay on as Shrewsbury manager and launch a promotion bid next season.

The former Shrews defender took over from Graham Turner in January but could not prevent the club being relegated to League Two.

He said: "Now the season is over and things have settled down discussions on what to do to move forward will take place.

"I'd like the opportunity to carry on and put my own team together, it's been a big learning curve for me and I've learnt a lot in a difficult situation.

"You don't get taught anything like this on a managers' or coaching course, this is being right in it."
