247news: Wrexham fans react as top star completes his transfer to a non-league team

SIGNED | Young defender Scott Butler returns to Wrexham after successful  trial - News - Wrexham AFC

The sentiment among Wrexham supporters is unanimous following Scott Butler’s recent completion of a move to a non-league team.

Phil Parkinson is making major changes to his Wrexham team this summer after the team was promoted to League One for the second time running.

Fortunately, many of the players the former Bradford City manager would have preferred to let go were nearing the end of their contracts. Nevertheless, he still had to make some tough choices.

Nine players have left the Racecourse Ground, including Ben Tozer, Aaron Hayden, and captain Luke Young.

Of those three players, two have already joined new teams: Tozer has joined recently relegated Forest Green in the National League, while Hayden has joined League Two side Carlisle United.

But while Scott Butler completes his permanent relocation to Marine, a third person has left Wrexham and found a permanent home.

The tenure of Scott Butler at Wrexham
Butler first joined Wrexham’s youth program before moving south to join Swansea City in 2019.

Before making his way back to the Racecourse Ground in October 2022, he played for the Swans at the under-18 and under-23 levels.

After being signed on trial, the 21-year-old was given the No. 24 shirt in Parkinson’s squad after establishing himself as a vital member of the reserve team and making an impression in the middle of the defense.

During their championship-winning 2022–23 campaign, Butler made just one appearance. He began the FA Trophy match against Altrincham with academy graduates Max Cleworth and Harry Lennon.

After making an impression with the reserve team, the Welshman was given a loan spell with Nantwich Town in the summer of 2023. In January 2024, he moved on to Marine of the Northern Premier League.

Wrexham fans are expressing their disapproval of the news that the young player, who shone with the Mariners, has returned to the team permanently.

Supporters of Wrexham respond to Scott Butler’s Marine debut.
Some fans were shocked to see him go after seeing how well he performed in the reserve squad and while on loan. One fan commented, “I’m surprised we’ve let him go.” Whenever I’ve watched him play, he’s looked good. I wish you luck.

“It’s great to see Scott getting a new club,” another admirer added. I wish you luck.

“Great lad, top player, and brilliant signing,” a third person said. Scotty, good luck.

Butler’s development appears to be well suited for Marine, so let’s hope he can keep getting better outside of Wrexham.
