Luke Summerfield revealed there was never any danger of him signing elsewhere after citing he had unfinished business at Wrexham.
While Wrexham’s finish to the season was emotionally a painful one, the Dragons going down to a heartbreaking extra time defeat to Eastleigh in the qualifying round of the play-offs, it was literally a painful finale to the term for Summerfield who ended the season on the physio’s table after injuring his knee against Chesterfield.
Summerfield was one of seven players from last season’s squad offered new terms by manager Bryan Hughes, albeit the midfielder’s deal was dependant on him proving his fitness after suffering the blow against Eastleigh.
Hughes revealed recently that Summerfield had given him assurances he was happy to re-sign for the Dragons and after a close season working hard with club physio Phil Davies, the 31-year-old penned a new one year contract.
He returned for pre-season training with his team-mates on Monday as the Dragons gear up for a 12th season outside the Football League, and insisted signing a new deal was always his intention.
“I think we were talking about it (a deal) over the whole of the summer,” said Summerfield.
“With how the season ended and the disappointment of the play-offs, it was hard to get over and obviously the disappointment of getting injured in the game as well.
“My summer was all about getting myself fit and raring to go for pre-season, but like I said from day one I’ve always wanted to sign and be back here. It has taken it’s time but from day one it was always going to get sorted.”
