Christian Dibble is relishing the battle to be Wrexham number one.

The 24-year-old, brought in last summer by Dean Keates, was Chris Dunn’s understudy for the 2017-18 campaign but he was offered a new deal by incoming manager Sam Ricketts and has put pen to paper on a two year contract.

Dunn was among the players released and Rob Lainton, who has arrived on a season long loan from League Two side Port Vale, is Dibble’s rival to be first choice goalkeeper

Dibble welcomed the competition but he has set his sights firmly on starting the 2018-19 campaign between the posts for the Reds.

“I trained with Rob at Bury a couple of years ago and he is a good lad,” said Dibble.

“I can only see it being beneficial for me and Rob to push each other and battle it out for the number one shirt.

“You need healthy competition, that is what spurs everyone on.

“We are going to battle it out with each other and we are good team-mates but on the training ground it is a different thing, we are both working hard and are both eager to play.”
