Paul Hurst has left Shrewsbury Town to take charge of Ipswich Town. The Shrews are now in the hunt for a new manager and here are five potential candidates-

David Hopkin, Livingston- He has guided Livingston to back-to-back promotions from the Scottish League One to the top flight. The 47-year-old is now being linked with a move to Shrewsbury Town to replace Paul Hurst. He has been in charge of Livingston since 2015 having previously been at Greenock Morton.

Keith Curle- He is available after leaving Carlisle United at the end of the season and could be considered by the Shrews. Curle has previously managed Chester, Torquay United, Notts County and Carlisle. He is an experienced boss and is a decent option for Shrewsbury.

Uwe Rosler- The German boss is free now after being sacked by Fleetwood Town in January. He has also been in charge of Brentford, Leeds United and Wigan Athletic in the past and deserves another chance in the Football League and would be ideal for Shrewsbury.

Stuart McCall- The 53-year-old guided Bradford City to the Play-Off final in the 2016/17 season but was sacked in February despite the Bantams being in sixth place. He has the experience of managing in League One and could be considered by the Shrews.

Gary Caldwell- He could be ideal for Shrewsbury to replace Paul Hurst as he is young and has a point to prove. He guided Wigan Athletic to the League One title in 2016 but his most recent stint at Chesterfield did not go well. Caldwell needs to be offered another chance in the game and could get it by Shrewsbury.
