Shrewsbury Town's player of the year Matt Richards insists that they can compete in League One and even target a play-off place next season.

"With the quality we've got in the side, I think we can achieve something next year," the 27-year-old ex-Walsall midfielder told BBC Radio Shropshire.

"We'll give a good account of ourselves and I don't see why we can't aim for the play-offs."

Richards was voted player of the year in his first season at the Meadow.

"It's been amazing," said Richards, who signed from the Saddlers last July. "The club have been brilliant.

"I've really enjoyed my football and the team's done exceptionally well."

Graham Turner's side sealed promotion with Saturday's 1-0 home win over Dagenham & Redbridge.
