Wrexham AFC are pleased to announce the signing of Kwame Thomas on a one-year deal.

The forward, who most recently played for Burton Albion, has signed on a free transfer after leaving the Brewers in June.

He also spent time at Doncaster Rovers last season, while he was previously with Solihull Moors – playing alongside new Wrexham team-mates Jamie Reckord and Adi Yussuf.

Thomas, 24, came through the Derby County academy and made his Championship debut in 2014.

He has also played for Coventry City, alongside another of Wrexham’s summer signings, Jordan Ponticelli, and has also had temporary spells with Notts County, Blackpool, Sutton United and Kidderminster.

An England youth international, playing at Under-16, Under-17 and Under-20 level, Thomas said of his move to the Racecourse:

“I’m happy to be here. I already know some of the players and I can’t wait to start.

“The main thing is playing games; if you aren’t playing games it’s a bit pointless so I had a decision to make – ‘do you want to be a footballer and play or do you just want to be on the bench and get 20 minutes’.  It was never a doubt for me to go somewhere and get games.

“I spoke to Adi and Recks briefly and they told me that this group of lads are really welcoming, and told me how they found it, so I spoke a little bit to make me feel at ease coming into a nice changing room and good surroundings.”

Thomas’ arrival takes the number of new signings for the new season up to eight, with Reckord, Ponticelli, Elliott Durrell, Jordan Davies, Theo Vassell and Reece Hall-Johnson signing permanent deals and Yussuf joining on loan.
