Matt Taylor: Former Shrewsbury skipper deserves welcome

Matt Taylor hopes former captain Luke Leahy gets a good reception when he comes up against Shrewsbury Town today.

Leahy, who played all 46 League One games in a Town shirt last season, led Town on the pitch to their second-highest finish in 33 years.

But he left in the summer for Wycombe, and the Town boss says he has nothing bad to say about the 31-year-old, and he hopes he gets a good reception.

“I don’t have anything negative to say about Luke,” he said.

“From the time I was in the building, he handled himself extremely professionally, and I understood his reasons for wanting to leave and there are no issues with that.
