Wrexham have signed defender Jake Lawlor on a two-year deal from Vanarama National League side Salford City FC for an undisclosed fee.
Lawlor, 27, has worked his way though the ranks during his career with the Yorkshireman beginning life in the Northern Premier with Ossett Town. In the summer of 2018 Jake opted to sign for newly promoted Salford City, however, with chances limited early on opted to join Wrexham on transfer deadline day for an undisclosed fee.
Lawlor told wrexhamafc.co.uk: “You can see here today, joining on match day, there are loads of fans here with shirts on, it’s a big club.
“I can’t wait to get started and help get the club promoted out of this league.”
He added: “I’m here to win games. I have experience of getting promotion in the past and that will help. The club have shown trust in me with a two-year deal and that’s really good for us both.”
Manager Sam Ricketts told wrexhamafc.co.uk “We’re pleased to bring Jake in to the club which continues to strengthen the side that we’ve built here.
“He brings with him a wealth of experience as well as adding more talent to the back-line, and more competition can only be a healthy thing for the team.
“Jake is a talented player who can add that bit extra for us, whilst it’s important going forward that we have players ready to step up and depth in the side will be vital going into the winter months in what is a long hard campaign.”
