Sharps: Influential figure for Shrews
Shrewsbury's PFA League Two team of the year representative Ian Sharps insists promotion remains his biggest aim.
The experienced centre-back has been a rock at the heart of Shrews' battle for promotion, starting 39 of the club's 42 league matches to date this term and scoring once.
Sharps has proved a sound addition by manager Graham Turner, who made him his first signing on a free transfer from Rotherham last summer having also been named in the League Two XI 12 months ago following a successful season with the Millers.
The 30-year-old skipper told Town's official website: "It's great to win any award but to be awarded one by your fellow professionals is a really big one. It should prove a boost for all the team going into these important final games as they all played a part in this award.
"The real goal is promotion and individual honours will mean little if we don't achieve that success we have strived for all season."
