Wrexham manager Dean Keates completed his first signing for the 2017/18 season when Mark Carrington signed an extended contract over the weekend.
Carra is one of the club’s longest serving players, only behind Robbie Evans, having joined in September 2013 after being released by Bury.
A former apprentice with Crewe, Mark had loan spells with Leigh and Kidsgrove before switching to MK Dons in 2009.
After 18 months with the Dons, he finished the 2010/11 season on loan in Scotland with Hamilton Accies, before joining Bury the following summer.
A further two seasons with the Shakers saw him head across the border to Wrexham.
In the last three and a half seasons he has tallied some 129 league appearances – but it was in the FA Cup at Stoke City in January 2015 that he scored the goal that was witnessed by some 4,500 travelling Wrexham fans!
Taking over the captain’s armband in the absence of Robbie Evans, Mark has been a consistent performer, either in defence or midfield.
