Welcome Paul Parry

So we have now signed a 31 year old striker. This is what we’ve all been asking for.

No not the 31 year old bit but a striker with a bit of experience.

He’s played at 3 different clubs and looks like a handy player who can play either up front or on the wing.

He’s also played 12 times for Wales scoring once for them. 20120709-154332.jpg

Fans Reaction

@jordanfrodsham (Preston Fan) Possibly our best outfield player last season but i would guess that he was on championship wages.

@sam_morris89 Very pleased with the signing of Paul Parry – feeling slightly happier with the way the sqaud is looking now. #Salop

@paulthomason77: Quality signing in Paul Parry from PNE, ex Cardiff and Wales International. Was worried but now really excited about the new season #salop

2 New Keepers

So we have finally sorted the keeper situation out by signing 2 new keepers.

Chris Weale

Personal Information
Full Name Christopher Weale
Date of birth 9 February 1982 (age 30)
Place of birth Yeovil, England
Height6 ft 2 in (1.88 m)
Playing position Goalkeeper
Club information
Current club Shrewsbury Town
Youth career
Gillingham Town
1999–2001 Yeovil Town
Senior career
Years Team Apps Goals
2000–2006 Yeovil Town 162 (0)
2006–2009 Bristol City 9 (0)
2007 → Hereford United (loan) 1 (0)
2008 → Hereford United (loan) 1 (0)
2009 → Yeovil Town (loan) 10 (1)
2009–2012 Leicester City 75 (0)
2012 → Northampton Town (loan) 3 (0)
2012– Shrewsbury Town 0 (0)

So this is very rare. We have a keeper who has scored a goal.


The only reason Chris lost his place in the Leicester team was because they signed Kasper Schmeichel.

We have a good feeling about Chris but he will have stiff competition for the number 1 top by our other new signing Joe Anyon

Well we have to new signings but the general reaction from most town fans seems to be negative.

Rob Purdie seems to be the one most people are a bit disappointed with and this is understandable as he is not proven at this level.

On the website it says he had a spell at Oldham but he didn’t make an appearance for them. So it will be interesting to see if he can cope.

Luke Summerfield has played at a higher level with Plymouth and he made over 100 appearances with them.

Watching Summerfield last year he was very impressive and always looked to create something special. We think he will be the man to look out for as he has to prove he was right to make the step up to League 1.

But where else do we need to bring more players in?

Who would you like to see brought in?
