LUKE YOUNG has been pleased with his form this season but the midfielder refuses to get carried away with Wrexham's National League status yet to be guaranteed.

The 26-year-old joined the Reds in the summer of 2018 after four years at Torquay where he was a key player.

Although he was a regular in 2018-19 when he helped Wrexham secure a play-off spot for the first time in six years, Young has really come to the fore this term.

Wrexham are battling to avoid relegation but Young has been one of the Reds' most consistent performers, his commitment to the cause in the middle of the pitch endearing himself to supporters.

But those hard-working displays and battling qualities are what Young considers to be the minimum requirement from players.

"It is always difficult moving away from home and moving to a new club, and trying to get the fans on your side as much as you can," said Young, who was born in Ivybridge, Devon, and has also played for Plymouth.

"Obviously I believe in my own ability but I always work hard and try and do the best I can, and show a bit of willingness, fight and energy.

"Sometimes when you don't play well, as long as you put the effort in that is all you can ask for yourself personally.

"As long as the fans can see you putting the effort in, and everybody has been putting in a great shift over the last few games, you reap the rewards with the fans getting behind us.

"It has probably been the most consistent season I have had for a while in my playing career which is obviously good.

"But you can't get carried away with things, it is one game at a time and we have still got quite a lot of games to go.

"I have just got to keep working hard and see where it takes us."

Wrexham, whose game against Young's former club Torquay on Saturday was postponed because of safety and weather concerns due to storm Dennis, are only two points above the relegation zone with 12 games to go.

Twelve months ago, the Reds were challenging for the title before finishing fourth and losing to Eastleigh in the play-off eliminator, but Young feels his second season at The Racecourse has been better than his first on a personal note.

"I have played a regular part this season and played pretty much every game," added Young.

"It is just showing that level of consistency and when you are in and out of the team like I was a little bit last season despite playing 40-plus games, it is hard.

"I would say it has probably been a more consistent season for me personally this year but it has just been unfortunate that we have not been able to kick on from what happened last season.

"We have got 12 games left where we have got to get safe first and foremost; hopefully we are looking up rather than behind us."
