Ipswich Town yesterday named Paul Hurst as their new manager. Want to know more about the former Grimsby and Shrewsbury boss? Here’s some online viewing.

Watch Shrewsbury Town chairman Roland Wycherley explain his reason for recruiting Hurst from recently-promoted League Two club Grimsby Town in October 2016 when the Shrews were rooted to the foot of the League One table.

There’s a Football Focus feature in which Hurst talks about the Shropshire side’s remarkable start to last season and the pride he has taken in working his way up from the lower leagues.

And you can also take a look at Hurst interacting with Salop fans at an open Q&A last March and a near hour-long interview in which he discusses his first year in post at the New Meadow.
