MARK CARRINGTON is gearing up for a seventh season with Wrexham after signing a new one-year deal.

The 32-year-old arrived at The Racecourse in September 2013 and is the longest serving player in Bryan Hughes' squad.

Having made more than 200 appearances for the club, the Wrexham vice-captain will add to that tally when the Reds embark on a 12th campaign in non-league.

Hughes is delighted that utility player Carrington, a midfielder who made the majority of his appearances this season as a full-back, has committed his future.

"Mark played over 30 games this season which is fantastic," said Hughes.

"It is quite selfish as a manager that he can play in numerous positions but his versatility is a bonus.

"Not just play, but play well, and that's why I want to keep him.

"He has shown a lot of loyalty to the club, this will be his seventh season so I am pleased he is on board."

Carrington joins winger Paul Rutherford and centre-back Doug Tharme in putting pen to paper on new deals.

Hughes welcomed Rutherford's decision to stay at Wrexham for a fourth season.

"I am delighted Paul has signed," said Hughes. "He loves the club and sees things happening here so he wanted to stay with us."

Hughes has also offered new contracts to player of the season Rob Lainton, James Jennings, Luke Summerfield and Kieran Kennedy.
