The duo, who are joint chairman of the Supporters' Parliament, helped put their club on the map by pushing Shrewsbury to become the first club in England and Wales to introduce safe standing to their all-seater stadia.

Davis and Groves were invited to the club's end of season awards on Sunday as special guests of the Shropshire Star and were collected their trophies on stage.
