- Ben Tollitt has joined Wrexham AFC on a short term loan deal from Tranmere Rovers
- Ben is not available for the match against Aldershot Town tomorrow afternoon
- Wrexham AFC have submitted a request for International Clearance this afternoon
Wrexham AFC are delighted to announce the signing of Ben Tollitt on an initial short-term loan deal from League Two side Tranmere Rovers.
The 24-year-old forward/winger was plucked out of non-league football by Portsmouth during the summer of 2015 after some impressive first team displays at Widnes and Skelmersdale United.
A Merseyside native, Ben graduated from the Everton youth system in 2013 before Pompey loaned him to Tranmere in 2016.
After impressing ‘the Whites’ manager Mickey Mellon, he made the deal permanent later in the season and eventually won promotion to the Football League via the play-offs last season with the club.
With starts limited since returning to the Football League, Ben joins Wrexham who are challenging at the top end of the Vanarama National League at an exciting time of the season.
Ben will not be available for tomorrow’s game at Aldershot Town, but subject to pending international clearance, he should be available for selection in time for the Boxing Day visit of Salford City.
Manager Graham Barrow commented: “Ben has become available and I was very keen to get the deal done. He won’t be able to play against Aldershot tomorrow but the clearance will be through in time for the Christmas games.
“Ben is an exciting young player, a real pacey wide attacker. I have watched him many times over the past few years and he gets you off your seat.”
