YORK CITY’S Adriano Moke may be preparing for the National League North play-offs but he still loves talking about his time at Wrexham, describing The Racecourse set-up as ‘class.’

The Minstermen, who lost top spot to Kings Lynn Town under the points-per-game ruling, are now doubly determined to secure promotion via next month’s play-offs.

Moke is a big favourite at Bootham Crescent and was part of Gary Mills’ team that won promotion to the Football League in 2012.

Mills later took the Portuguese-born midfielder to Wrexham where he had one season at The Racecourse

“I loved it at Wrexham,” Moke, who has former Wrexham team-mate Sean Newton alongside him at York, told the It’s Still Nil Nil podcast. “They’re sleeping giants, they are a big club.

“When Gary Mills got the job I knew. I was probably the second player he rang and he said ‘Moke’s I want to talk to you, come down to Wrexham’.

“As soon as I went and saw the training ground I was blown. You look at the training ground and think ‘wow, this is what it’s about’. Everything about the set-up was class.

“He said he wanted me to sign and lift this place up and as soon as he said that I said no problem.

“I loved it at Wrexham, I loved every minute.”

Moke may not have been able to take Wrexham to the play-offs that year but he loved the way The Reds played in the 2015/16 season.

“Even from the first game, which I think we lost against Bromley, the football we played was the best football I ever played,” he added.

“I remember we thrashed Halifax and me and Newts still talk about it now. It’s probably the best footballing side I’ve been in.”
