Euro challenge excites Shawcross

BY foxsports • June 3, 2011

The Potters enter the competition next month at the third qualifying round having reached a first ever FA Cup final, with Manchester City's qualification for the Champions League putting them into Europe. "We know we aren't in there quite yet, we will have a few difficult qualifying games in front of us, but we will be doing our best to come through them, and then we can really look forward to what could be in front of us," he said. "There is a lot to look forward to here, and I am really enjoying being a part of it all. I really can't wait until the new season starts. "It was an incredible season for each and every one of us really. As a team and as a club I don't think we could have achieved much more. "Obviously it was slightly disappointing to lose to Wigan on the final day and not finish in the top ten because I feel we deserved to. "But that gives us another objective to aim for. Nobody can argue with what we have achieved here over the last three seasons."
