Player, assistant manager, caretaker manager… Tom Shaw has done the lot in his third season with Chester FC. And the popular midfielder is now a proud member of the Blues’ 100 club to boot.
Shaw made his 100th appearance in a Chester shirt in Saturday’s FA Trophy win over AFC Fylde. And, having recovered from injury, and having put his burgeoning coaching career on hold, he is determined to make many more.
Midlands-based Shaw: “I’m delighted and my family are really pleased. I didn’t think I’d ever do it at a club. I’ve always got to 80 or 90 appearances and then moved on.
“So to get to 100 at such a big club and such a great club is something I’ll remember and be proud of. Hopefully there’s plenty more to come.
“I love it here. I have a long journey every morning to get here but the people around the club, and the way the club is run, makes it a great place to come and play your football.
“The matchdays are fantastic, home and away the atmosphere is great, and Saturdays make all the travelling and the commitment worthwhile.”
