Sam Wedgbury has sensationally quit Wrexham.

The midfielder left the club by mutual consent after holding talks with manager Sam Ricketts. Brought in from Forest Green Rovers by Dean Keates last summer, Wedgbury played a key role as Wrexham challenged for promotion and he penned a new deal in February to keep him at The Racecourse for the 2018-19 campaign.

But Wedgbury, who hails from Sheffield, says the commute for training has become a burden and the club have agreed for him to move on, with the 29-year-old handing back his signing-on fee he received after penning his contract extension.

“I actually got a signing on fee for the new contract so I have handed that back,” said Wedgbury.

“I would not do the dirty on the club, I have got too much respect for the club and myself.

“It is a fan owned club and money matters, they need to stay above board and I want to do it in a classy way and not be an idiot.”
