Pre-season can be a chore for some footballers but Chris Holroyd couldn’t wait to return to training with Wrexham.
Experienced striker Holroyd missed the final four games last season because of a toe injury and had to watch from the sidelines as the Reds’ promotion challenge collapsed during a dreadful run-in.
Now fully-healed, Holroyd, who finished leading scorer with 13 goals last term, has reported no ill-effects following Wrexham’s early sessions at a sun-basked Nine Ace and he is looking forward to the start of the 2018-19 campaign.
“It was enjoyable to be back in,” said Holroyd, who also missed a month at the start of last season after dislocating a shoulder in the opening day defeat against former club Macclesfield Town.
“I have been looking forward to it to be honest.
“The season ended early for me so it has been quite a long wait to get back to the football and I enjoyed it.
“The toe feels good. Obviously I gave it a good amount of time and everything has fully healed now.
“It was frustrating to miss the end of the season with the situation we were in.
“We were pushing to get in the play-offs so from a personal point of view it was disappointing that I couldn’t do anything to help the lads in that sense.
“I am just looking forward now to this season.”
