Full Contact client Mickey Demetriou has today signed a two year contract at League Two club Shrewsbury Town.
Mickey, 24, has spent the last three seasons in the Conference Premier division with Kidderminster Harriers, amassing over 100 appearances, but has today made the exciting step up the Football League. Shrewsbury Town, looking to immediately bounce back from their League 1 relegation under new management, swooped to secure Mickey’s services amidst interest from a number of League competitors.
Dan Chapman, senior partner of Full Contact, commented after the deal was finalised “Mickey is the latest in a growing list of players we have helped make the move from non-league to Football League, and we believe at Shrewsbury he has a great opportunity, in time, to play higher than League Two also. He’s an example to many players in the Conference that consistently good performances will get you noticed. I am also pleased for our Jon Herrador; it was Jon who first scouted Mickey and brought him to our attention as a player who was of Football League calibre and Mickey’s a good example of how the Full Contact team produce results.”
Lee Payne, head of Full Contact’s Football Agency team stated “Some of Mickey’s performances in the season just gone for Kidderminster were superb, in particular the FA Cup games against Peterborough and Sunderland stand out for me. Shrewsbury is a big club in League Two, and they will have aspirations to get back to League One quickly, so this is very good move for Mickey. I think he can raise the bar now and at 24 he’s still got the best of his Football League career ahead of him.”
All at Full Contact wish Mickey and Shrewsbury Town the best for the 2014/15 season.
