  • Wrexham AFC are pleased to confirm the signing of Elliott Durrell on a one-year deal for the 2020-21 season.
  • Versatile midfielder Durrell, 31, returns to the Racecourse having most recently played for Altrincham.

Wrexham AFC are pleased to welcome midfielder Elliott Durrell back to the Racecourse for a second spell, after he signed a one-year deal for the 2020-21 season.

Durrell, who most recently played for Altrincham, last played for Wrexham between 2014 and 2015.

During his time at the Racecourse, he was a team-mate of current manager Dean Keates, while another recently returned midfielder, Jay Harris, was also alongside them in midfield.

The 31-year-old returns to the Racecourse having played for Tamworth, Chester, Macclesfield – with whom he won the National League – York City and Altrincham since leaving.

In his first spell at the club, Durrell made 30 league appearances and scored four goals, and admitted the chance to return to the Racecourse was too good to turn down.

Durrell said: “Having played with [Dean Keates] before, he knows what I can do. A lot’s changed since I was last here but as soon as I knew there was interest from the club, and from Dean, it was a no-brainer really.

“Having been involved in a squad with Dean, I know he’s a winner and those are the sort of players he is looking to add to the squad. There isn’t a bigger winning mentality in a player than one like Jay Harris.

“It’s great to be back and I can’t wait to get going now.

“In some ways there could be some unfinished business. Since the last time I was here, I’ve gone away and worked hard and made a success of where I’ve been and that’s something I want to bring back here now.”
