CONTRACT NEWS | Max Cleworth signs Wrexham AFC extension

Young centre-back commits future to Football Club

5 December 2022

Wrexham AFC are delighted to announce defender Max Cleworth has signed a contract extension, committing his future to the Football Club until 2025.

Academy graduate Cleworth, 20, was rewarded for breaking into the first team – making his National League debut on the opening day of last season – with a new, long-term contract last year.

And having since established himself in the first-team squad and gone on to pass 50 Wrexham AFC appearances, Cleworth has now signed an extension to that deal.

On signing, the centre-back said: “I’m buzzing. It was something I was keen to get done and I’m really happy it has happened.

“The Club is going in a great direction and I’m really looking forward to just pushing on and hopefully being a part of the team that makes history for this Club.

“I’ve gained a lot of experience since signing my last contract extension, and I’m enjoying being around the first-team squad.”

Cleworth played 36 times in all last season, his breakthrough campaign, and scored his first Wrexham AFC goal.

He has made a further 14 appearances this season, and on extending his contract he paid tribute to the coaching staff and his fellow centre-backs.

He added: “From the very start of my time at Wrexham it has been a big development, and since Phil Parkinson and Steve Parkin have come in, and David Jones, they’ve helped me massively.

“The lads around me – Ben Tozer, Aaron Hayden and now Jordan Tunnicliffe – have also helped me massively in terms of adding bits to my game; learning from bad moments but then enjoying the good ones too.”

Manager Phil Parkinson said: “We’re pleased Max has signed his contract extension.

“He’s a good young player with more than 50 appearances under his belt already and we’re looking forward to seeing him progress with the Football Club.”
