Wrexham AFC have signed defender Kieran Kennedy on a permanent deal until the end of the 2018-19 season.

Kennedy was most recently with Shrewsbury Town in League One, where he signed in June 2018 for an undisclosed fee from current Vanarama National League champions Macclesfield Town.

He put pen to paper at the Racecourse this morning after completing a medical. The club have submitted the necessary paperwork and applied for international clearance with a view of having him available for the FA Trophy game against Leyton Orient on Saturday afternoon.

Manager Graham Barrow commented: “Kieran is the centre-half I have been talking about and who I have been trying to sign for the past week or so. He won the league last season with Macclesfield, is a good age and is a very good defender.

“The skipper (Shaun Pearson) and Jake (Lawlor) have played a lot of games in a short space of time and with Manny (Smith) and young Doug (Tharme) out at the moment, Kieran joining is excellent news.

“It gives us depth and would also allow us to play with three at the back if needs be.”
