Wrexham AFC are delighted to announce the return of midfielder Jay Harris, 32, who has signed a permanent deal with the club.

Harris has signed an 18-month contract at the Racecourse, joining from Macclesfield Town for whom he has made 25 league appearances this season.

The tenacious midfielder previously played for Wrexham between 2010 and 2015, making 181 league appearances in his first spell at the club.

Harris, who formed an effective midfield partnership with current manager Dean Keates, was also part of the FA Trophy-winning side at Wembley in 2013.

He left in 2015 to join Tranmere Rovers, playing a key part in their promotions from the National League and then into League One, including starting last year’s play-off final at Wembley.

Harris signed for Macclesfield last summer, making 28 appearances in all competitions so far this season, before agreeing his switch to the Racecourse.

On returning to Wrexham, Harris said: “Coming through the doors brings back a few memories.

“Dean and I played together for five years here, and we had a good relationship both on the field and off it, and ever since we left we always kept in contact.

“But the past is the past, I’ve got a job to do again now I’ve come back here.

“I’m looking forward to it. I love playing football and to be back here is incredible.

“I don’t think I’ve changed much. I’ve aged a bit obviously, but I feel I can still do the same job as I did when I last here, which made me a fan’s favourite – hopefully I can rekindle that relationship with the fans.”
