Shrewsbury boss set to leave for non-league football

Published

The manager of Sky Bet League One side Shrewsbury Town, Micky Mellon, is set to leave the club to join National League outfit Tranmere Rovers, according to BBC Radio Shropshire.

Mellon took over at New Meadow in May 2014 after replacing caretaker manager Mike Jackson, who is currently his assistant at the Shropshire club.

Shrewsbury have struggled in the league so far this season. They currently sit 22nd in the third-tier with just two wins under their belt and have drawn the last three fixtures in the league by the same scoreline, one apiece.

During his first season in charge of the Shrews, Micky Mellon guided his side to promotion from League Two but narrowly avoided the drop last campaign when they finished 20th.

Tranmere sacked Gary Brabin last month after three consecutive defeats. They currently sit 9th in the fifth-tier of English football.

Mike Jackson is set to follow Mellon to Prenton Park. Shrewsbury will be on the search for their sixth manager since moving from Oteley Road nine years ago.
