History of Shrewsbury Town FC
Shrewsbury Town is an English football club situated in Shropshire near the England-Wales border. The club was established as far back as 1886, but did not officially join the English Football League until 1950. Shrewsbury Town’s history has been confined to the lower tiers of English football, they currently play in League One, which is the third tier.
The low point in the history of Shrewsbury Town was a single season spent in the Conference Division, 2003/04. Since this point the club has slowly regained strength and league position working their way through League Two and into League One. The 2017/18 season was a particular highlight for the wearers of the Shrewsbury Town jerseys. The club finished 3rd in the league, making two appearances at Wembley Stadium:
- EFL Trophy Final – Lost 1-0 to Lincoln City
- League-One Play-Off Final – Lost 2-1 to Rotherham United
The squad may have failed to secure promotion of the EFL Trohpy however, the team and supporters alike go into the 2018/19 season full of hope for the future with new manager John Askey at the helm.

Development of the Shrewsbury Town Kit
Today Shrewsbury Town football club instantly conjures the image of the iconic blue and amber vertical stripe home shirt, however, this colour scheme was only introduced in 1978. Prior to this time the Shrewsbury Town jerseys have featured an array of styles and colour schemes. Blue has always been a colour featured in the clubs kits with plain blue shirts, blue and white vertical stripes, half and half as well as quartered designs featuring at least once in the clubs history.
By the early 1970’s with Umbro as the Shrewsbury Town kit manufacturer the blue and amber colour scheme became mainstream but it was not until 1978 that the alternating vertical stripes were introduced. The stripes are well known and loved by fans, but despite this the team has had an array of kits over the past 30 years with varying combinations of blue and amber.
Since taking on the role of kit manufacturer in 2015 Errea has stuck closely to the popular striped design. The 2018/19 Shrewsbury home shirt has full stripes with plain blue sleeves and white trim around the neckline. This jersey is a must for every devout Shrewsbury Town supporters.
