Key Facts

  • Michael Chambers signs one-year contract with Wrexham AFC.
  • The 25-year-old centre-back has trained with the club during the summer.
  • The London born defender will wear the number 23 shirt at Wrexham.

Wrexham AFC are pleased to confirm defender Michael Chambers has signed a one-year contract with the club.

Chambers, 25, has spent the summer attracting the attention of many clubs, including Wrexham and supporters may remember he featured in our friendly against Fleetwood Town earlier in the month.

Born in London, Chambers started his career with Dulwich Hamlet and impressed enough for Crystal Palace to splash out a £100,000 transfer fee for his services in 2012.

The centre-half spent time on-loan with Harrow Borough and Welling before returning to Hamlet in 2016. 

On joining Wrexham AFC, Chambers said: “I’m delighted to be here. I came in for a few days and played against Fleetwood and it felt right and felt conformable.

“I have been and played some games for EFL teams after that, and there was interested from them, but after being here and seeing the town and spending time with the other players, it was always in my mind that I wanted to sign here.”

Talking about his playing style he said: “I think I’m what they call a modern centre-half. I’m left sided and can get the ball down and play.” 

Manager Bryan Hughes added: “I’m delighted about Michael signing. He had loads of interest from a lot of clubs in our league and from League Two, so it’s fantastic news that he is here and all signed up as a Wrexham player.

“He is a very good footballer, intelligent with the ball and a commanding defender who will give us balance being left-footed. He adds even more quality to what was already statistically the best defence in the league last season.”
