Shrewsbury Town veteran Andy Robinson has announced his retirement because of a long-standing knee injury.

The 35-year-old former Tranmere Rovers, Swansea City and Leeds United midfielder was signed last summer by Town boss Micky Mellon.

He arrived on a one-year contract after being released by Tranmere, also Mellon's former club, with whom Robinson had three separate spells.

But he made just three early-season substitute appearances for the Town.

Shrewsbury in good place in promotion race
Shrewsbury Town are second in League Two with eight matches left, five points behind leaders Burton Albion, four points clear of fourth-placed Bury.

Shrewsbury have suffered bad luck with knee injuries this season.

Fellow midfielder James Wesolowski and defender Nat Knight-Percival have both been ruled out for the rest of the season, while striker Andy Mangan has only just returned from two months out after surgery.
