Wrexham AFC are delighted to announce the signing of forward Liam McAlinden on a two-year deal.
McAlinden, 27, is a product of the Wolverhampton Wanderers’ academy, and has represented both Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland at under-21 level.
He played for FC Halifax Town and Stockport County in the National League in the 2019-20 season, scoring a combined 12 goals for the two clubs, and was most recently part of Morecambe’s promotion-winning team in League Two.
His final goal for the Club came in the play-off semi-final first leg at Tranmere Rovers, helping the Shrimps to the Final – and ultimately to promotion.
On signing for Wrexham, McAlinden said: “I’m delighted to get the deal over the line. I spoke to the manager last week and once he explained the project here I was keen to get involved.
“From the outside looking in, it’s been really interesting to see what is happening at Wrexham so as soon as I knew the Club was interested, it was a no-brainer to get it over line.
“I’ve played in the National League before, and enjoyed a consistent season. I’d describe myself as a hard-working forward, I like to get in behind defenders and hopefully I can bring something to excite the fans when once they’re back at the Racecourse Ground.”
Manager Phil Parkinson said: “Liam’s an interesting player. He can play wide and just off a target man. He’s a good age, good technical ability and he’s mobile.
“We’ve had to compete with some league clubs to bring Liam here and I’m delighted to get that over the line.”
