West Ham boss Moyes welcomes Shrewsbury FA Cup draw: Exciting for me

West Ham boss David Moyes has welcomed their FA Cup Third Round draw with Shrewsbury Town.

Moyes and goalkeeper Joe Hart played for the Shrews earlier in their careers, with the former totalling 108 appearances for the Shropshire club between 1987-90.

"There is obviously a lot of football to play and a very busy run of fixtures before we can focus on the trip to Shrewsbury but I'm sure there will be a lot of excitement once we get closer to the game," Moyes told whufc.com.

Shrewsbury are going very well in League One, and it is a club I know well having spent three years there as a player.

“The tie will be a fantastic occasion for them and we will give their team the utmost respect, but we have seven very important Premier League matches to play before then and that is our only focus at the minute."
