Wrexham AFC are pleased to announce the signing of former Irish youth international goalkeeper Luke McNicholas on a short-term contract until January.
Mayo-born McNicholas, 23, joins on a short-term contract from League of Ireland Premier Division side Sligo Rovers to bolster Wrexham’s goalkeeping options. Wrexham have the option to sign the player permanently in January.
McNicholas, who has represented Ireland at Under-18 level, and has also spent time away on loan with Finn Harps and Cliftonville.
This season, he has played 26 matches for the Bit O’ Red, who currently sit seventh in the Irish top flight with ten games remaining.
On signing, he said: “I’m absolutely buzzing to be here and can’t wait to get started. The experience in the goalkeeping department at Wrexham is second to none.
“I’ve got so much to learn from all of them, and from Aidan Davison, so I know I’m going to soak it all in.”
Wrexham AFC manager Phil Parkinson said: “I’m delighted to sign Luke. He’s a good, young goalkeeper with real potential and we’re looking forward to working with him.”
