Wrexham Football Club is delighted to confirm the signing of forward Freddie Hinds from Championship club Bristol City.

The 19-year-old joins Wrexham on a season-long loan after completing a medical at the club yesterday.

Freddie started his career in the youth set-up at Luton Town where he eventually signed a pro contract in 2016.

After impressing by winning the under-18 Youth Alliance South East, the Youth Alliance Cup and reaching the quarter-finals of the Youth FA Cup in 2016, Freddie was handed his first team debut on 4th October 2016, a 2-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion in the EFL Trophy.

On the 31st January 2017 he signed a two-and-a-half year contract at Championship club Bristol City for an undisclosed fee. He made his debut for the Robins on 8th August 2017, a 5-0 win over Plymouth Argyle in the EFL Cup.

Freddie also went out on-loan last season at League Two side Cheltenham Town where he played 14 times.

Talking of his move he told wrexhamafc.co.uk: “It’s been a weird few weeks in pre-season not quite knowing what to do, but I just wanted to get a loan move and I’m happy I have come here.

“The level doesn’t make a difference to me, I just wanted to get out, get experience and hopefully score goals.”

Talking about his style of play he added: “I prefer playing central, that’s where I am most conformable, I have played wide and can play there.

“I would like to hope fans will see me as a finisher, creative and I can excite people going forwards. Goals is my main target and I hope I can come here and provide”

Manager Sam Ricketts said of the signing: “Freddie is an exciting young player who is coming to us from a Championship club where he is very, very highly rated.

“He will give us an extra attacking threat with his energy and pace.”

He added: “We have been watching him for a while now and are delighted to get his move to Wrexham over the line.”
