Wrexham AFC are delighted to confirm the signing of striker Jordan Ponticelli from Coventry City.

Ponticelli, 21, who spent time on loan at Wrexham last season, has signed a two-year deal at the Racecourse.

A Coventry academy graduate, Ponticelli played five times for Wrexham before the season’s premature end, scoring away to Chesterfield and Bromley.

On becoming Wrexham’s third new signing for the 2020-21 season, following the capture of Jamie Reckord and Elliott Durrell, Ponticelli said it was an easy choice to return to the Racecourse.

“I’m delighted to be back,” he said. “When I was here, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a good spell that I had, even though it wasn’t that long.

“I came here, I did well, I got some game time and it was a no-brainer really to come back once I knew the interest was still there.

“I wanted to come back and push on from where I left.

“I have more time now to play for the fans. They know I’ll work hard, and they know I can finish as well so hopefully I’ll score more goals too.”

Ponticelli previously made 32 appearances for Coventry, after making his professional debut in August 2017, scoring six goals.

He was part of the team that won promotion in the play-offs in 2018 and appeared as a substitute in the play-off final win against Exeter at Wembley.

Prior to his loan spell at the Racecourse, the striker also spent time on loan at Macclesfield Town and Tranmere Rovers.

Manager Dean Keates said of the signing: “For us it’s a great signing. His main aim is to get back to the Football League, and that’s what our main aim is too. He’s a Football League player in all but title now.

“He came in, he got his head down, he waited and as soon as he got his opportunity he took it. He’ll be a good signing.”
