Wrexham AFC have announced two more signings as boss Sam Ricketts seeks to improve his striking options ahead of the new season.

The Reds have signed forward Stuart Beavon on a season-long loan deal from League One club Coventry City.

Teenage striker Freddie Hinds has also joined on loan from Championship side Bristol City.

Beavon, 34, put pen to paper on a deal on Friday morning after completing a medical and the striker arrives with a wealth of football league experience with Wycombe Wanderers, Preston North End, Burton Albion and most recently Coventry.

The forward played in Leagues One and Two as well as Championship football with Burton over three seasons scoring 15 goals which sparked a move to Coventry.

While at the Sky Blues during 2016-17 he played 14 games in League One. He gained promotion last season via the League Two play-offs back to League One playing 14 times for the side.

Beavon told wrexhamafc.co.uk: “I’m really pleased to be at Wrexham. I have spoken to Sam Ricketts a few times over the past weeks. It's taken a bit of time but I’m glad it’s done and I can’t wait to get out on the pitch.

“Sam said to bring my experience to the team to help the lads mount a challenge this season.”

Talking about his style of play he said: “I will always give my all, work hard, chip in with some goals and create a lot more.

“I can play anywhere along the front and I like to get involved. I want to help the team and push for promotion.”

Manager Ricketts said: “Stuart is a fantastic signing who is coming in to us from a League one side. He’s an experienced player who has achieved five promotions over the course of his career.

He added: “His game know-how is something that will help the younger players around him. I’m really pleased to have him here at Wrexham and I’m sure he’ll have a big part to play in the coming season.”

Bristol City striker Hinds signed a new three year deal at Ashton Gate his week but will now head out on loan.

The teenager is expected to join up with the Reds until January and comes to the Racecourse Ground in search of first team football despite remaining in the long-term plans of Bristol City boss Lee Johnson.

He is contracted to the club until 2021 while there is an option to extend the former Luton Town striker's deal by a year if the young prospect is deemed a success.
