Wrexham have signed Paul Rutherford and Jordan White.

Rutherford has spent the last two seasons with Southport, but was previously with both Chester FC and Barrow AFC.

The 28-year-old was a junior at Liverpool first and then Chester, before being offered a wrexhamprofessional contract by the old City club in 2005.

He went onto make thirty-eight appearances at the Deva Stadium in their Football League days and one of his early appearances was as a late substitute at the Racecourse in March 2006, when the Reds won out 2-1.

He left Chester in the summer of 2009 and joined Barrow in the Conference, and during a four-year spell at Holker Street, he was a regular with the Bluebirds and played in over 170 matches.

Those games included a visit to the FA Trophy Final in 2010, when he was on the winning side against Stevenage Borough.

The last two years have been spent closer to his home on the Wirral, after he joined Southport and featured over 100 times for the Sandgrounders.

Rutherford was out of contract at the Merseyrail Community Stadium at the end of the season and has opted to take up the offer of a one-year contract at the Racecourse.

Wrexham have also announced the signing of striker Jordan White on a one-year deal.

Now 24, the Glasgow-based forward has been with Livingston FC for the last two seasons, playing in the Scottish Championship.

A former youth player with Dunfermline Athletic, he was then spotted by Falkirk manager Steven Pressley, but chances were limited with the Bairns, so he moved onto Stirling Albion and that was when the goals started to flow.

He stepped up from Stirling to join Livingston, when Rob Ogleby had also just signed.

Some thirty-one league goals later, in a very competitive division, has now seem him head south to join the Reds.
