Date of birth
Striker Ollie Palmer signed for Wrexham in January 2022 becoming the Club's record transfer, penning a three-and-a-half year deal.
The Epsom-born forward began life with Woking, signing professional terms with the Cards in 2010, before going on to have spells on loan with Boreham Wood and St Albans City.
The 6’5” striker went on to join Havant & Waterlooville where he found his scoring touch, earning a 2013 move to the EFL with Mansfield Town on the back of being named the National League South Player of the Season for 2012/13.
His EFL debut came in August 2013 in a defeat to Scunthorpe before scoring his first goal weeks later in a victory over Wycombe Wanderers. He scored five goals in his first season with the Stags before doubling his tally the next season and hitting double figures.
In 2015, Palmer joined Grimsby Town on loan during the January transfer window, helping the Mariners to the play-offs after scoring eight goals in 18 games.
After departing Mansfield that summer, Ollie joined Leyton Orient where he spent two seasons grabbing 12 goals, while he was also loaned out to Luton Town where the Hatters reached the League Two playoffs.
After stints with Lincoln City and Crawley Town, Palmer joined AFC Wimbledon in the summer of 2020, where he led the Dons line – scoring 13 goals in his 18 months with the League One outfit.
In January 2022, Wrexham broke their record transfer fee to aquire the striker on a three-and-a-half year contract.
Palmer hit the ground running scoring on his debut against Grimsby Town in a 1-0 win at the STōK Cae Ras.
The striker’s presence helped galvanise performances heading into the run-in, as he scored 16 goals after his arrival in January.
Since then, Palmer has struck up a vital partnership with fellow frontman Paul Mullin, with the duo a key component in Wrexham’s title-winning side.
Wrexham’s number nine would go on to score 17 times in 45 appearances during the 2022/23 National League campaign.
