JAMES JENNINGS is relaxed about his Wrexham future with the club in a “difficult situation”.

The National League season was suspended in early March, and there wasn’t another ball kicked before the campaign was ended immediately in April as a result of the coronavirus crisis.

Jennings, like the majority of his Wrexham team-mates - only Shaun Pearson, Rob Lainton, Luke Young, Dan Jarvis, Jay Harris and Devonte Redmond have deals for next season - is out of contract this summer.

But with the future of the National League up in the air and the entire Wrexham squad and backroom staff, including manager Dean Keates, on furlough, decisions on who will be staying at The Racecourse have been put on the backburner.

Jennings fully understands the situation facing clubs at this level, saying: “It’s a difficult time, no-one knows what the budget is for next season, or even when next season will happen.

“It’s a case of wait and see, I’m certainly not pushing for anything.

“It’s a difficult situation for every club.”

The 32-year-old would, however, be pleased if Reds boss Keates was to offer him fresh terms.

“If he wants me I’m sure he will let me know when he can,” said Jennings. “But I’m not sitting around thinking ‘does he want me, doesn’t he want me?’

“Something like this changes the landscape of football, but I’ve loved my time at Wrexham regardless of what happens.

“When something like this happens it makes you miss everything, like training, the changing room and the buzz of a matchday in-front of our fans.

“Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to find out about next season now, but it’s about sitting tight and waiting for some news.”

Jennings also believes that he would have been fit and ready to take to the field for Wrexham before the end of the season had it not been cut short.

The left-back tore his medial collateral ligament (MCL) and cartilage in his knee against Dagenham and Redbridge on February 1, missing just four matches before the curtain came down on the campaign.

“It’s healed really well,” said Jennings. “At the time I felt like I would miss about 12 games and be back for the last couple before the summer.

“It was frustrating when it happened because I was feeling fit, I’d not had any injuries or suspensions for a while.”

Thankfully for Jennings, brother of former Wrexham attacker Connor, rehabilitation in lockdown hasn’t been as difficult as it sounds.

“I’ve done rehab at home before and over the summer months, so it is not something new to me,” said the experienced Jennings. “I’ve obviously not tested it as I would have done if we’d been training, but I did some tests about four weeks ago and it felt fine.

“Before we left ahead of lockdown I managed to get hold of some weights to help build the muscles up around the knee and I was working with the physio, Phil (Davies), over FaceTime before we were furloughed.

“But since then I’ve just been following the programmes we’ve got to do and making sure that I don’t overdo anything.

“Since then it’s been about getting my fitness back and I’ve been out on my bike.”
