Wrexham Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of striker Stuart Beavon on a season-long loan deal from League One club Coventry City.

The 34-year-old forward put pen to paper on the deal this morning after completing a medical.

Stuart’s career has been played predominantly in the football league at the likes of Wycombe Wanderers, Preston North End, Burton Albion and most recently Coventry.

The forward played in League two, one and the Championship while with Burton over three seasons scoring 15 goals which sparked a move to Coventry.

While at the Sky Blues during 2016-17 he played 14 games in League One. He gained promotion last season via the League Two play-offs back to League One playing 14 times for the side.

Stuart told wrexhamafc.co.uk: “I’m really pleased to be at Wrexham. I have spoken to Sam Ricketts a few times over the past weeks. It's taken a bit of time but I’m glad it’s done and I can’t wait to get out on the pitch.

“Sam said to bring my experience to the team to help the lads mount a challenge this season.”

Talking about his style of play he said: “I will always give my all, work hard, chip in with some goals and create a lot more.

“I can play anywhere along the front and I like to get involved. I want to help the team and push for promotion.”

Manager Sam Ricketts said: “Stuart is a fantastic signing who is coming in to us from a League one side. He’s an experienced player who has achieved five promotions over the course of his career.

He added: “His game know-how is something that will help the younger players around him. I’m really pleased to have him here at Wrexham and I’m sure he’ll have a big part to play in the coming season.”
