However, we understand Shrewsbury Town supporters' desire to keep up to date with all the action during this blackout.

Here, we'll detail our plans to ensure you can keep up with the action for this weekend's game.

Shrewsbury Town v Oxford United - 3pm, Saturday May 1

Shrewsbury Town take on Oxford United at 3pm on Saturday at the Montgomery Waters Meadow - with Steve Cotterill back in the dugout. There will be no tweets from the ground from Shrewsbury reporter Lewis Cox, or any other members of the Shropshire Star team.

From 1.30pm, we will be running a manned feed providing updates available on the Shropshire Star website. This will include everything from team news, to match action - and everything in between.

Following the full-time whistle, we will also publish our usual match report and manager reaction.

None of these articles will be shared on social media in-line with the boycott.

Video analysis of the game will be available on Tuesday May 4, featuring Lewis Cox and Luke Hatfield.

The boycott will have no effect on our print coverage of the weekend's action. There will also be full coverage of Wolves on the Express & Star website.

We would like to thank all of our readers for their understanding in our inclusion in this united effort to raise awareness of online abuse, and bring it to a stop.
