Gary Peters (footballer) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (845 words)
Gary Peters (born 3 August 1954 in Carshalton, Sutton, Greater London) is a professional footballer turned manager.
Peters appointed the much-travelled Mick Wadsworth as his assistant in January 2005, and Shrewsbury finished 21st out of 24 that season, 11 points above the relegated Kidderminster.
But Peters has since turned Shrewsbury's fortunes upwards, with the club even knocking Football League Championship club Brighton out of the League Cup and taking Sheffield United, also of the Championship, to a penalty shootout in the same competition.
