Town see out the campaign with the short trip to The Alexandra Stadium tomorrow lunchtime, where the returning boss will again watch from the stands, rather than the dugout.

The fixture is likely to be the last game in Town colours for a number of the existing squad, with as many as 14 senior players out of contract.

Cotterill has not yet spoken directly with his troops about whether or not they are a part of his plans for next season, which will be his first full season in charge at Montgomery Waters Meadow.

It is thought there will be big change within the squad as Town eye improvement on a relegation battle.

Talks are planned for Wednesday, before the squad and staff disperse for their summer break. Players will typically be on holiday throughout much of June.

Cotterill and his Town head of recruitment Keith Burt have been setting plans for next season’s squad, with Shrewsbury having realistically secured their League One status a number of weeks ago.

Question marks remain over several high-profile players, including Shaun Whalley, Ro-Shaun Williams, Sean Goss, Daniel Udoh and Dave Edwards – the latter revealed he would be open to a longer stay having considered retirement.
