Ben Godfrey: Shrews one step closer... but not done yet

14 May 2018

Norwich City midfielder Ben Godfrey wants loan side Shrewsbury Town to rise to the challenge one last time after booking their place in the Sky Bet League One play-off final.

Paul Hurst's men completed a 2-0 aggregate win over Charlton Athletic on Sunday, with fellow City youngster Carlton Morris scoring the only goal in a second leg semi-final victory.

Speaking to, Godfrey said: "I'm really proud of the lads for getting that step closer.

"The celebrations show what it means to everyone here, the staff, the fans and players. It's a massive achievement but we're not done yet.

"We need to rest up and get ready for two weeks time to play whoever we face in the final. We will still be working hard for the next two weeks.

"We know there are still a full 90 minutes of football or possibly more to achieve our dream."

Godfrey says Salop will take extra motivation from the pain felt following last month's Checkatrade Trophy Final defeat to Lincoln City, with a determination to experience different emotions this time around.

"Nobody wants that feeling again," the 20-year-old explained.

"We are going to go there full of confidence. We are a bunch of competitive lads so hopefully we can get the win.

"I'd never been to Wembley before I came to Shrewsbury so I'm really looking forward to it."
