A player that spent 15-years at West Brom wants to focus on his 'next chapter' after leaving The Hawthorn's last month.

Rayhaan Tulloch has opened up on his time at West Brom after he left the club to join Shrewsbury Town this month.

Tulloch now 23, joined the club as an eight-year old back in 2009. He graduated from the academy in to the first-team and made seven appearances in total, with two of those being league appearances in the Championship in the 2021/22 season.

Most of his senior career was spent away from the club on loan, playing for the likes of Doncaster Rovers and Rochdale. His most successful period of his career so far was with Dundalk last year, scoring five goals in 19 games in the top flight of Irish football.

This season, he was loaned out to Bradford City and made 10 appearances for the Bantams, but his time at Valley Parade was brought to an end. It was decided on the final day of the winter transfer window that his contract with the Baggies would be terminated, and for the past few weeks he's been training with Shrewsbury. He has signed a short-term contract with the Shrews until the end of the campaign.

“It was good, I met loads of great people," said Tulloch to BBC Radio Shropshire, reflecting on his time in the West Midlands.

“I was there from the age of about eight years old I think so all my friends are from there and it holds a special place in my heart.

“I’m just looking forward to moving on to my next chapter.”

Tulloch was an unused substitute for Shrewsbury in their win over Port Vale at the weekend but could feature on Tuesday night. The Shropshire outfit host Exeter City at the New Meadow on March 12 as they look to create a further gap between themselves and the bottom four.

“I want to get as many minutes as possible and help the team win as many games as possible," said Tulloch who outlined his ambitions for the rest of the season.

“I think the better you perform the better it is for you but also it’s better for the team and it’s a team sport at the end of the day. 

“That’s the main thing, helping the team.”
