Wrexham AFC are pleased to confirm midfielder James Jones has signed a new contract, committing his future to the Football Club until the end of the 2024/25 season.
Jones, 27, first signed for Wrexham in 2021 and will now extend his stay at the STōK Cae Ras into at least a fourth season, with an option for a further year too.
After making his debut in a 2-0 win away to Eastleigh in August 2021, Jones has gone on to make 110 Wrexham appearances and score 14 goals – including two in this season’s thrilling 5-5 draw with Swindon Town.
And on signing a new contract, the former Scotland youth international midfielder said: “I’m delighted to have signed. It’s a special Club to be at and I’ve enjoyed my time here.
“I’m really pleased to get this done and I’m looking forward to pushing for another promotion.”
Born in Dundee, Jones came through the Crewe Alexandra youth academy and, after making his senior debut aged 18, went on to make 185 appearances and score 21 goals across six seasons.
He moved back to League One with Lincoln City for the 2020/21 season, and made a further 45 appearances, but opted to drop into the National League for the first time with Wrexham for the 2021/22 season.
Jones scored seven goals in 48 appearances in all competitions in his first season, becoming popular for his tireless running in midfield.
His first goal for the Club was a late equaliser in a season-changing 2-1 win away to FC Halifax Town in November 2021, and Jones also netted a last-minute winner away to Notts County in the FA Trophy Quarter-Final that season.
Wrexham’s number 30 made a further 52 appearances in all competitions last season, scoring five goals, and his two against Swindon Town in the current campaign have taken him to 14 in his Red Dragons career. Only club captain Ben Tozer has appeared more times for Wrexham under Phil Parkinson than Jones, and only five players have scored more Wrexham goals in that time.
On his new contract, manager Parkinson said: “It’s well deserved. He’s a player who has made a big contribution here and I’m looking forward to seeing him continue to do that.”
