Wrexham goalkeeper Christian Dibble has outlined his ambitions at Wrexham and insists he’ll fight tooth and nail for the number one spot.
The 24-year old Dragons custodian penned a new 2-year deal on Monday, keeping him at the Racecourse Ground until 2020.
“I want to come in and play as number one” admitted Dibble, who spoke to the club website minutes after putting pen to paper.
“I’m delighted to be staying, last year I got a chance and played a few games and thought I did well and then had an unfortunate injury which kept me out of the team, but hopefully this year I can push on and do my best for the club.
“It’s really exciting, I met the manager a few days ago and I liked what he said, he wants to play attacking football and score a lot of goals and I think that’s what everyone wants to achieve, it’s a massive football club and we just need to get out of this league now”.
Dibble joined the Dragons in 2017 signing an initial one-year deal and went on to make five league appearances for the Dragons.
He made his debut away to Maidstone United after Chris Dunn pulled up in the warm-up, and saved a penalty in a controversial 2-1 loss in Kent.
In the weeks that followed he kept four clean sheets on the trot, saving a further penalty against Bromley and pulling off some fine saves, before being set back by a back injury.
“I think I’ve shown that I can play in the Conference and hopefully this year I can show that I can do that again.
“I want to be getting games under my belt and I want to show everyone what I can do, I know myself I’ve got the ability to do it.
“Last year I came in as number two where Dunny [Chris Dunn] was playing and I had a good pre-season, finally got my break away at Maidstone, we lost that game but the next four we did really well and then the injury set back was a shame”.
Now Dibble, who along with the retained Chris Holroyd, Paul Rutherford and Mark Carrington will be looking to end the decade long exile from the Football League.
“That’s got to be our ambition this year to get back to the Football League where the club belongs, the club is far too massive to be in the Conference, we all know that”.
