Scott Boden was disappointed his spell at Wrexham did not work out but he has no regrets about making the switch to The Racecourse.

Experienced striker Boden, brought in by then-Reds boss Dean Keates from Scottish club Inverness Caledonian Thistle last summer, failed to score in his opening 17 league games in 2017-18.

The goal brought came to an end when Boden netted in Wrexham’s 4-1 defeat against eventual champions Macclesfield Town in December, and he went onto enjoy a run in the side.

But he only found the back of the net on two more occasions, Boden finishing the campaign with three goals from 34 league appearances, of which 23 were starts, and he was released by new Wrexham manager Sam Ricketts.

Boden was gutted he wasn’t as prolific as he was during his last spell in the fifth tier with Halifax Town – he also had a good record at this level earlier in his career at Macclesfield – and that Wrexham’s promotion challenge fell away during the run-in.

“If I am being brutally honest I wish it has gone better for me personally and for the team,” said Boden.

“I was hoping to come in and build on what I did the last time I played at this level but for one reason or another, things did not work out.

“But you have to look to the future, there is no point looking back and regretting things. That is football, the nature of the beast. I will go again and I am sure the club will go again too.”
