- Defender Kieran Kennedy joins Wrexham AFC
- Kieran has signed a permanent deal until the end of the 2018-19 season
- Wrexham AFC have submitted a request for International Clearance
Wrexham AFC are delighted to announce the signing of defender Kieran Kennedy on a permanent deal until the end of the 2018-19 season.
Kieran was most recently with Shrewsbury Town in League One where he signed in June 2018 for an undisclosed fee from current Vanarama National League champions Macclesfield Town.
2017-18 saw 25-year-old Kieran win the National League with 35 appearances at the heart of the Silkmen’s defence scoring one goal for good measure against Chester.
Manchester born Kieran featured in the games against the Dragons last season and helped his side to 14 cleans sheets while on the field.
He started off his career in Manchester City’s youth set-up before transferring to Leicester City. Kieran made his first senior appearances for Motherwell in the SPL before a move to AFC Fylde in 2017.
Kieran put pen to paper at the Racecourse this morning after completing a medical. The club have submitted the necessary paperwork and applied for international clearance with a view of having him available for our FA Trophy game against Leyton Orient on Saturday afternoon.
Manager Graham Barrow commented: “Kieran is the centre-half I have been talking about and who I have been trying to sign for the past week or so. He won the league last season with Macclesfield, is a good age and is a very good defender.
“The skipper (Shaun Pearson) and Jake (Lawlor) have played a lot of games in a short space of time and with Manny (Smith) and young Doug (Tharme) out at the moment, Kieran joining is excellent news.
“It gives us depth and would also allow us to play with three at the back if needs be.”
