LUKE SUMMERFIELD dedicated his spectacular goal and man of the match performance in Wrexham's 3-0 win against Woking to his grandad.

The midfielder opened the scoring at The Racecourse with a stunning 25 yard drive that found the top corner of the net.

After Dan Jarvis made it 2-0 early in the second half, Summerfield converted a late penalty and he was rewarded for a superb all-round performance by winning the man of the match award.

Summerfield has had a difficult time of late, with his grandfather passing away, so the afternoon's events were even more special to the 32-year-old.

"It was good to get a brace for the first time," said Summerfield. "It was also the first time I have scored here so that was a bonus, my two goals last season were away.

"We know how important the first goal is for us at the moment with the way it is going and to score like that, on a personal level it was massive.

"It has been a very difficult two months for me off the field with family things and that was massive for me and my family to get that goal and to get the winning performance.

"That wasn't just for me as a Wrexham player, that was for me, my family and my grandad. It meant a lot to me."

There will be no shortage of contenders for the goal of the season gong - Luke Young and Paul Rutherford will also make the shortlist for their efforts - but Summerfield was just pleased to score following recent events.

"I am just delighted that I finally had a shot that has gone in," said Summerfield.

"It was a special goal but however I would have scored on Saturday, it would have been a special goal for me and my family, and I hope my grandad enjoyed it up there."

Summerfield, who converted a penalty in Wrexham's win at Dagenham in October 2018, has seen Bobby Grant take over spot-kick duties this season.

But Grant has missed his last two penalties and was dropped for the visit of Woking, so Summerfield was not going to be denied the chance to add to his tally.

"I have been wanting to get on them all year," said Summerfield.

"I think I have only been on the pitch once when we have had a penalty this season and Bobby was on them.

"Bobby scored and missed some but that is football. Luckily we got one and I put it in.

"I am on penalties so fingers crossed we get a few more."

Wrexham, beaten 2-1 by fellow strugglers Aldershot in the previous outing, are two points above the relegation zone and Summerfield wants to build on the Woking win when the Reds head to high-flying Harrogate on Saturday.

"The reaction was massive for us the way the last home game went," added Summerfield.

"We know as a squad how good we can be in this league, especially at home.

"We know we have got capabilities to win any game in this league and that showed. We need to be more consistent at home and hopefully get some results away from home.

"We need to win games to get us up the table.

"We know how good Harrogate are and where they are in the table but Woking were above us and we showed how good we can be so we can take positives into this game and hopefully get three points."
