- Dawid Szczepaniak signs one-year contract with Wrexham AFC
- The 19-year-old goalkeeper has been on trial with the club over the summer
- Polish-born Szczepaniak, who lives in Wrexham, will wear the number 31 jersey
Wrexham AFC are pleased to confirm goalkeeper Dawid Szczepaniak has signed a one-year contract with the club following his successful trial.
Szczepaniak, 19, has spent the summer training with the first-team and featured in several pre-season friendlies.
Born in Poland, Szczepaniak moved to Wrexham aged 15 and lives locally, but spent last season with Morecambe in League Two.
The goalkeeper has also previously trained with Wrexham and played with Airbus UK Broughton, and will wear the number 31 jersey.
On joining Wrexham AFC, Szczepaniak said: “I’m very happy that I have signed a contract because I know I can better myself here and I can’t wait.
“I know I can improve with Michael Oakes, Rob Lainton and Christian Dibble, if I’m going to train with them every day and watch them.
“I’m so happy I’m here at Wrexham. I gained confidence playing every week in pre-season. I am more confident now, that’s the main thing.”
Manager Bryan Hughes added: “Dawid’s come in on trial and he’s done well. He’s a good age and a good size and he’s had a bit of experience with Morecambe last season.
“He’s someone that we can develop, potentially send on loan to get game time and also give us a bit more security in the goalkeeping department.
“He’s keen, he’s eager. One of the biggest things is he lives locally as well – that’s a big plus. I was aware of him last season and I’m delighted to have him on board.”
