Wrexham AFC are pleased to confirm the return of teenage attacker Louis Lloyd, who has signed a contract until the end of the 2022/23 season following a successful trial.
Lloyd, 19, who played in the Club’s youth academy, has since played for Shrewsbury Town – making his professional debut in the EFL Trophy.
He played two senior games in Shropshire, including scoring his first senior goal in a comeback win against Wolves Under-21s in the Trophy.
And he now returns to the Racecourse Ground, having impressed on trial with the Reserves team in the Central League – playing three times and scoring once.
On his return, Lloyd said: “It feels great to be back, after going away. It’s good to be back here – a lot of things have changed but it feels good.
“It’s massive the way the Club has been built up. Changes have been made around the ground, the training facilities available to us, the coaches… everything is just a lot better than when we were here as kids.
“The Central League has been good. Obviously I know a few of the lads I’m playing with from when I was here as a kid, but the standard’s good and the standard of opposition we’re playing too – it’s a good challenge.”
First-team manager Phil Parkinson added: “We’re looking to boost the quality of our reserve team, and Louis has been with us a while now, training.
“We feel he has done enough to earn the opportunity to further prove himself to us, until at least the end of this season.”
