Wrexham AFC are pleased to confirm Liam McAlinden has signed a one-year contract extension, keeping him at the Racecourse Ground for the 2023/24 season.
McAlinden – who first arrived in 2021 as one of Phil Parkinson’s first signings as Wrexham manager – has made 58 appearances across the last two years, including 22 starts.
A versatile player, capable of playing at wing-back, in midfield or further forward, the former Republic of Ireland Under-21 international will now take his time at Wrexham into a third season.
On signing, he said: “When the manager said he was looking to renew my contract, I was delighted. After the success we had last season, I’d love to be a part of it again going forward.
“It’s been the most enjoyable two years of my career if I’m honest. The Club’s going in a great direction, and now to be a part of it next year – as we look to go on achieve more on the back of our success last season – is fantastic.”
McAlinden signed for Wrexham having helped Morecambe to promotion from EFL League Two in his final season before joining, and has now been promoted three times in his career after also winning League One with Wolves.
And looking ahead to next season, the 29-year-old added: “There is a step up in quality, but I think the group is really strong.
“Last season we set records and there is quality in that group. To be part of that again is great, and hopefully we can kick on from where we left off and add further success.”
Wrexham AFC manager Parkinson added: “We’re pleased Liam has signed for another season.
“He has been a great member of the squad over the last two seasons, and we’re looking forward to him making an impact again next season.”
