Well what an opportunity Shrewsbury Town FC gave us by getting to the play off final. A trip to the new Wembley stadium. Both Dan and I were on a trip down memory lane as it brought back all our happy memories of standing on the riverside at the Gay meadow back in the 70's and 80's. Seeing Shropshire folk take over a quarter of one of the world's greatest stadiums was something, although Bristol Rovers out numbered us 3 to 1. Unfortunately Shrewsbury lost a well fought battle and had a chance of equalising at the death but for an over zealous keeper who came up for a corner when he didn't need to and Bristol broke away to score their third goal. It started so well with an early lead for Shrewsbury so at least we got the chance to cheer and go mad. In the end we lost 3-1 and Bristol got promoted. As for the new ground it is fantastic. The great thing is , it is a massive stadium but the pitch doesn't feel far away, and the interior is more like an airport than a stadium. The food prices were horrendous, but like good Shropshire lads we took a packed lunch. A disappointing result but a great day out. Check out all our photos on my flikr site.
