Dean Keates has held preliminary talks with some of his squad over new contracts.

The Wrexham boss revamped the squad last summer with the defensive quartet of Kevin Roberts, Manny Smith, James Jennings and captain Shaun Pearson all penning two-year deals. But the likes of 12-goal leading scorer Chris Holroyd and influential midfielder Sam Wedgbury arrived at The Racecourse on one-year deals.

And Keates has started to speak to certain players regarding their futures at The Racecourse.

“There are one or two I have had brief conversations with,” said Keates. “There are one or two that have deserved talks.

“From when I got the job, the club needed stability and we needed to operate in the right way. I got the players in on two-year contracts to start building.

“If you build a house, you wouldn’t put your roof on first; you build foundations and I built from the back.

“Hopefully we can add a bit more and there are one or two players we will look to tie down for next season.”
