West Ham goalkeeper Joe Hart excited by Shrewsbury FA Cup draw

West Ham goalkeeper Joe Hart has welcomed their FA Cup draw with Shrewsbury Town.

Hart was a young star with the Shrews before being snapped up by Manchester City.

Now on-loan with the Irons, he declared: “It's the first time I'll have gone back to Shrewsbury for a competitive game, so I'm really looking forward to it.

“It's a beautiful town and a nice place to live. We are kind of on the edge of everything in our own little world, but it's a great place, full of proud people, and I have nothing but good things to say about Shrewsbury. It's my home.

“It was nice to be involved in the first team from such a young age. They put me in the team when we were in non-league and we were just above the drop zone, when I was only 17 or 18, and we managed to stay up, which was good. They always had a lot of faith in me, which I really appreciated."
