After a run of seven defeats in eight games across all competitions while only managing to score 18 goals in 28 games former boss Matt Taylor was relieved of his duties in Shropshire.

Hurst, a fan favourite at the Croud Meadow after almost guiding Shrewsbury to promotion back in 2018, was soon appointed.

The former Grimsby boss finished third in League One before losing in the play-off final with Town in what was ultimately the best season in the club’s recent history.

But coming back into Salop, he had a real task on his hands.
