FORMER Wrexham duo Rob Evans and Martin Riley will be playing for new clubs in National League North next season.

Midfielder Evans, who came through the ranks at The Racecourse and also captained his hometown club, has joined Curzon Ashton.

After leaving Wrexham in 2017, Evans has a spell at Billericay Town before spending the 2018-19 season with Warrington Town.

On joining Curzon, who will host Wrexham at the Tameside stadium in a pre-season friendly, Evans tweeted: "Made up to sign for @CurzonAshton can’t wait to get started now!"

Centre-back Riley, who had two spells with Wrexham, most recently in 2016-17 when he won the Player of the Season award, has signed for Hereford United.

The experienced 32-year-old, who has also played for the likes of Kidderminster Harriers, Cheltenham Town, Mansfield Town and Tranmere Rovers, spent last season playing for Alfreton Town in the National League North.

Riley told the official Hereford FC website: “I’m really pleased to have agreed a deal to come to Edgar Street and am excited about our prospects for next season.

"I’ve played here on several occasions over the years and have always found it a tough place to come and get a result.

“I’ll bring a great deal of experience with me – mostly in the National League and League Two – and I’m looking forward to getting to know the other lads. Obviously, I already know Reece Styche and Josh Gowling which should certainly help me settle in.

“I’m already beginning to look forward to the start of pre-season training and I’m pleased to have got myself fixed up for next season, as that means I can now focus on getting myself ready for the challenges that lie ahead.”
