GET TO KNOW | Luke Bolton

Find out more about our latest addition to the squad!

1 February 2024

Bolton arrives at the STōK Cae Ras having already played in front of the Wrexham faithful this season, during his time with Salford City.

Having started his career in the youth ranks at Manchester City’s academy, he earned seven caps at international level with England’s U20 side, playing in their 2017 Toulon tournament-winning side.

Being brought up in an elite footballing environment with the Citizens, Bolton’s peers included Jadon Sancho, Brahim Diaz and Phil Foden – who all appeared together in the 2017 FA Youth Cup Final.

His first stint in senior football came at Wycombe Wanderers, when he joined Gareth Ainsworth’s side in League One during the 2018-19 season. Having been included in City’s Champions League squad, he made the switch to Adams Park in January 2019.

The winger turned full-back returned to the Etihad Stadium following the conclusion of his loan spell, later going on to link-up with current Wrexham midfielder Elliot Lee at Kenilworth Road during the 2019-20 season.

Luton found themselves in the Sky Bet Championship following promotion from Sky Bet League One in the previous season, and Bolton played an important role in the club’s Championship survival – appearing on 24 occasions in the league.

Bolton’s next journey took him north, as he made the move to Scotland to join up with Scottish Premiership side Dundee United for the 2020-21 campaign.

It was during this spell that the ex-England U20 international scored his first senior goal – as he netted a last-minute equaliser to seal a draw with Hibernian in December 2020.

In total, the wing-back appeared 24 times in the league, before he decided to leave Manchester City on a permanent basis to find a new home at the Peninsula Stadium, joining Salford City on deadline day in January 2022.

Having joined halfway through the season, Bolton made 15 league appearances, as the Ammies secured a 10th place finish at the conclusion of the campaign.

Once settled into life at the Peninsula Stadium, he enjoyed a breakthrough 2022/23 season under Neil Wood, appearing in all 46 league matches and recording 13 goal contributions over the course of the season.

While the Ammies have struggled to date during the 2023/24 campaign, Bolton has been a bright spark in a disappointing season – providing five assists this season.

Having made the switch to North Wales, the 24-year-old will aim to contribute towards the Red Dragons’ promotion push, as Phil Parkinson’s side look to continue in their battle to progress into Sky Bet League One.
