SIGNED | James Jones signs for Wrexham from Lincoln City

Midfielder pens three-year deal at the Racecourse Ground

24 August 2021

Wrexham AFC are delighted to confirm the signing of midfielder James Jones for an undisclosed fee from League One Lincoln City.

The former Scotland Under-21 international midfielder, 25, has penned a three-year deal at the Racecourse Ground. 

Having come through Crewe Alexandra’s academy, before going on to make 185 league appearances for the Club, he spent last season with Lincoln City before his switch to the Racecourse Ground. 

And he explained it was the ambition of the Club which tempted him to move to Wrexham. He said: “I’m really delighted to get it over the line. It was something which really appealed to me and I’m looking forward to getting started now. 

“The ambition of the Club attracted me – everyone knows the story going on, it’s something a bit special at the minute, and with the fanbase and history of the Club I want to be part of that. 

“Stepping down to the National League was something I had to consider, but because of the ambition of the Club, and the project, and the manager and chairmen’s plans going forward – it’s an exciting prospect to be part of, trying to get into the Football League and beyond. 

“I just want to help the team get promoted, whatever that takes – be it chipping in with goals and assists or doing the hard work to allow other players to do that. As long as we get promoted, that will be a success for me.” 

Dundee-born Jones earned four Scotland Under-21 caps between 2016 and 2017, and helped Crewe to promotion as League Two runners-up in 2020. 

He made 45 appearances in all competitions for Lincoln last season, after turning down a new deal at Crewe, and scored three goals. 

On the signing, manager Phil Parkinson said: “I’m delighted to welcome James to the Club. He’s a footballer with real energy.  

“He’s a good player, and a good age too and I feel he will be a good addition to our group for the coming season and beyond.”
