Full Contact client Mickey Demetriou is the latest client to secure a Football League promotion, as Shrewsbury secured their return to League One at the weekend.
Mickey, who only joined the Football League for the first time last summer after a career previously spent in non-league, has enjoyed an extremely successful first season at Shrewsbury. Appearing 41 times (out of 45 League two fixtures) so far, with one game to play, Mickey also scored three goals and played a big part in 20 clean sheets. An even more remarkable statistic is that Shrewsbury and Mickey have conceded only one goal in their last 8 League games – a big drive behind the form that saw them secure promotion with a game to spare. Promotion was secured away from home, in a 1-0 win at Cheltenham Town.
In addition to his Football League appearances, Mickey also appeared 7 times in the three cup competitions (including against the likes of Chelsea, Leicester and Norwich).
Shrewsbury could still win the League Two title – they are two points behind Burton Albion going into the last weekend – but in any event it has been a fabulous first season for Mickey in the Football League. The ex-England C defender now looks forward to stepping up again, and pitting himself against the best that League One has to offer.
All at Full Contact congratulate Mickey and Shrewsbury on an excellent season.
