Shrewsbury turn to Macclesfield boss Askey

The 53-year-old has been appointed as the successor to Paul Hurst.

Shrewsbury have appointed John Askey as their new manager after luring him from Macclesfield.

The 53-year-old has signed a three-year contract, with compensation having been agreed with his former club.

He replaces Paul Hurst, who this week left for Ipswich in the wake of Shrewsbury’s League One play-off final defeat by Rotherham.

Askey has been with Macclesfield since 1984 as a player, youth team manager, assistant manager and two separate spells as manager, the most recent of which began five years ago and included their promotion back into the Football League.

“I’m excited about the challenge ahead,” he told his new club’s official website.

“It’s all happened so quickly, but it’s a great move for me. Last season you had a great season and it’s whether we can reproduce that again. Obviously, we will be trying our best and I am looking forward to it.

“It’s a big wrench to come and it had to be something special for me to come. I’m really looking forward to the challenge and testing myself.  Everything’s set up to do well.

“I know a lot of the players, I’ve seen them play, a lot of them have played at a lower level and they’re hungry, and they’ve showed this season what they can do.

“The secret now is to reproduce that again. We will be trying our hardest and I’m sure the players will be. If they can give the same effort that they showed last season then there’s no reason why they can’t.

“My hopes are to get Shrewsbury promoted. Whether that will be next season, or in another year or two, you’ve got to aim high and it’s about winning – that’s my job.”
