Wrexham AFC are pleased to confirm attacking trio Gold Omotayo, Chris Sang and Keanu Marsh-Brown have all joined the club on non-contract terms.

All three have been training with the club this week and, after impressing manager Dean Keates, have been added to the first-team squad.

Swiss striker Omotayo and Guyanan winger Marsh-Brown were both with Gloucester City most recently, while Sang last played for Barnsley.

Tall forward Omotayo, 27, has also enjoyed a short stint with FC Halifax Town this season, having previously played for Yeovil Town in the National League in 2019-20.

On signing for Wrexham, Omotayo said: “I’m delighted to be here and to get it over the line. We don’t need to talk about how massive a club it is and it’s a big opportunity for me.

“I’m here to impress, we all know what the goal is and I’m here to get the job done. I can feel the togetherness here already so I’m really feeling good and ready to get started.”

Marsh-Brown, meanwhile, is well-known to National League supporters having helped Forest Green Rovers to promotion in 2017.

Prior to his brief spell with Gloucester City this season, the 28-year-old winger – who has also played for Newport County – played in America’s USL Championship for Memphis 901.

He has won 11 caps for Guyana, and was part of their squad for their World Cup qualifiers last month.

Marsh-Brown said: “I feel fully fit. I was away with the national team and before that I was training full-time so my fitness is up to scratch.

“I feel I can add experience, especially at this time of the season and going into the play-offs – I’ve got a lot of experience going into these games and I know how to win them,

Sang, 21, came through Wigan’s youth academy and made his senior debut for Bury in 2017.

He was most recently with Barnsley Under-23s, and spent time on loan with Guiseley too.

The young striker said upon signing: “I’m excited. It’s a big opportunity, going for the play-offs – I want to stay here, I want to prove myself, so I’m happy to be here.

“I like to run in behind, I like the ball to feet too, hopefully I can get a few goals as well.”

All three are in the match-day squad for this game against Stockport County, with Keanu Marsh-Brown set to make his Wrexham debut from the start.
