Sam Wedgbury’s promotion know-how will boost new club Wrexham, and according to manager Dean Keates size really does matter.
The Red Dragons have landed the midfielder, who helped Forest Green win promotion last season.
Keates has been looking for a player of his build and the club’s impressive summer recruitment drive could have them down as contenders.
“I have been after him for a few weeks now and following numerous phone calls, I’m pleased to have landed him,” said the manager.
“What most impressed me about Sam was that he said he wanted his next move would be to a big football club.

“To hear those words, I knew we had a massive chance and I’m grateful he’s bought into what we want to do next season.
“We watched him in one of the late league games last season and he was very impressive when Forest Green beat Tranmere, covering every blade of grass.
“He’s a fit lad, goes box to box, sits in there to break things up and he’s a good size,” Wedgbury’s new boss told the club’s website.

He’s not the only summer addition popular with the fans.
Wedgbury’s former Macclesfield Town team-mate Chris Holroyd has arrived at the Racecourse, and so has Grimsby’s central defender Shaun Pearson.
