Player of the Year at Torquay United, he is leaving following four years at Plainmoor, after the former Plymouth Argyle man turned down the offer of a new contract with the Gulls. Young spoke to the club website after signing on the dotted line and said:

“I’m really looking forward to it. After playing Wrexham over the past few years it’s always been a tough place to come.

“Being on the flipside of that now is something I am really looking forward to.”

On securing a two-year deal at the Dragons he said: “It was a big factor having that security over two-years. It’s not just me moving up here to Wales, it’s my missus and the little one.”

Manager Sam Ricketts was pleased to get his man: “I have said from day one that I want quality players and Luke is one of them. Fair play, he is moving up here with his family

“He’s made that commitment to move from Torquay to Wrexham and that is the type of players I want.”

Talking of Luke’s ability he said: “He’s really good on the ball,he switches the play really well and we’ll be looking to utilise that this year.”
