Wrexham have signed a  Scotland international……

Steven Fletcher (footballer) - Wikipedia

Steve Fletcher, a former Scotland international, has inked a new deal with Wrexham AFC, which will keep him with the team through the 2024–25 season. After signing with Wrexham in September as a free agent, Fletcher, 37, scored eight goals in 34 games to help the team get promoted to League One. This includes a goal in stoppage time against Crewe Alex and a hat-trick in a 4-1 victory over Barrow.

“I’m thrilled to have committed for another year, and I’m excited about the upcoming season,” Fletcher stated. Throughout his career, Fletcher has played for a number of teams, scoring over 40 goals for Sunderland and Wolverhampton Wanderers. Prior to joining Dundee United, he had played for Sheffield Wednesday and Stoke City in the Championship. “We are happy that Steven has resigned,” Phil Parkinson, the manager of Wrexham, stated. “He played a key role on and off the pitch last season and we look forward to working with him again in our League One campaign.”


Wrexham completes first summer transaction as former Premier League player signs contract

Prior to their return to League One, Wrexham has made their first summer transfer window announcement.

Under the management of Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, the Red Dragons won their second straight promotion in April.

This means that for the first time since the 2004–05 season, Phil Parkinson’s team will participate in third tier football this season.

Although there weren’t many new players signed during the previous summer transfer window, veteran players like James McClean, George Evans, and Ben Foster all signed contracts.

The signing of Luke Armstrong, a striker for Harrogate, for a club-record fee on deadline day was Wrexham’s first priority, however the attempt was thwarted by the EFL since the paperwork was not submitted in time.

Eventually, they decided to sign Steven Fletcher, a free agent who had played for Burnley, Wolves, and Sunderland and scored 63 goals in the Premier League.

The Scotland striker, who is currently 37 years old, scored eight goals in 33 League Two games the previous season and was a valuable option both as a starter and off the bench.

Fletcher’s previous contract was set to end on June 30, but Wrexham has now revealed that he has agreed to sign a new one-year contract to remain at the Racecourse Ground.

The Welsh team had given the Scot new terms to stay put, so he was included in the club’s first retained list, which was made public last month.

The club’s official website carried a brief statement from Fletcher, saying, “I’m delighted to have signed another year, and I’m really looking forward to the season ahead.”

Although The Portsmouth News claims that Wrexham has been in talks with Wales international midfielder Joe Morrell, they have not yet signed a new player on a permanent basis for the summer.

The 27-year-old started in all but one of the games he was available for prior to January, contributing significantly to Portsmouth’s League One championship run the previous season.

But in the same month, he was sidelined by a season-ending knee injury against Oxford.
