Having completed his scholarship with Wrexham, young defender Olly Marx has accepted the offer of his first professional contract at the Racecourse.
The manager was happy to get his man: “Glad we’ve got it all tied down, just took a little time due to holidays, but delighted he has signed.
“Everyone could see his potential towards the end of last season, when he played those seven games, he handled everything and was outstanding.
“He a massive part of the plans going forward.
“As part of his development, I would be look to him to be playing anything from 10-20 games.
“But if it was that he needed to be playing in all our games, then he’s more than capable of that.
“I’m buzzing he’s agreed to stay.”
Having spent time out on loan with Sutton Coldfield Town in January 2017, Olly returned to Wrexham and was included with the first team squad on several occasions before making his debut at Barrow on 21 March.
Unfortunately, he received a blow to the head late in that match, which forced him onto the sidelines for the following Saturday, but Olly was back in the starting line-up for the derby encounter with Tranmere Rovers a week later.
There was no holding the youngster back and he figured in all six of our fixtures throughout April, gaining valuable experience into the bargain.
Impressing both supporters and management staff, Olly has now signed on for the coming season, joining fellow scholar Leo Smith in the full-time ranks.
