“I don’t just want to be a fan” said Doug Tharme, the young defender setting his sights on gaining more minutes on the pitch over the coming season.
The 20-year-old academy graduate saw an unsuccessful loan spell at National League North side AFC Telford United cut short early last week, and was immediately thrust back into Dragons action on the weekend as he started the SPFL Challenge Cup third round tie against Ayr United , being replaced five minutes before the end by debutant Bobby Beaumont.
Tharme, who signed a new one-year deal at the Racecourse last summer, insists he is not sure where his immediate future lies, whether at Wrexham or back out on loan, but insists he desperately needs to be playing games.
“Once you cross the 20 (years old) threshold you expect to be playing,” said Tharme.
“I didn’t envisage being a professional and not playing, I am not one to sit in the stand, and I don’t just want to be a fan, as much as I am a fan of Wrexham, I really don’t want to be one.”
