Sam Wedgbury has hailed the quality of the current Wrexham squad and believes they are strong enough to attain promotion back to the Football League this term.

The 28-year-old defensive midfielder was among the 14 players recruited by Dean Keates in the summer as part of an extensive overhaul of the Wrexham squad.

Wedgbury made the move to North Wales from Forest Green Rovers, where he was part of the squad that clinched promotion to League Two last term.

With more than a third of the National League season played and Wrexham third in the table, Wedgbury says his current club can emulate Rovers’ feat.

“It’s been a very positive so far,” said Wedgbury. “When you think that 14 new players were brought to the club in such a short period of time and we look at where we are right now, we have to be satisfied with that.

“We’re in third place and just three points off the top of the table, which puts us in really good shape for the rest of the season.

“There’s a lot of quality here and a really good team spirit and it feels good to be a part of that. Obviously, as a group, we’ve set targets ourselves for and we know it’s going to take a lot more hard work for us to get there.

“The play-offs should be the very minimum we should be aiming for and I think that’s a very realistic ambition.”
