Winger Jon Taylor has today completed a move to League 1 side Peterborough United.

A deal between the two clubs for an undisclosed fee has been reached, and Taylor has now penned a three year contract with the London Road outfit.

Having joined us initially as a youth player following release by Wigan, he stepped up nicely through the Academy ranks and was handed his first team debut by former manager Paul Simpson in our 1-0 win over Chesterfield back in January 2010. He signed his first professional deal shortly after that and went on to make almost 150 appearances for the club.

A brief statement from the club wished to place on record their thanks to the player for all his efforts during his spell with us, and that everyone at the club wished him the very best of success in his career at Peterborough.

Speaking to the Official Site the 21 year old admitted that it had been a very tough decision to make.

‘It was a very hard decision, everyone knows how much I love Shrewsbury as they’ve done so much for me. I think it was the right time for me to move on now and to continue to develop as a player and continue to play at a higher level. In the end we have all sat down and spoken about it and in the end I think it’s the correct decision for me.’
