THE mystery surrounding Bobby Grant’s contract at Wrexham appears to have been solved.

Grant’s name appeared on Dean Keates’ retained list as one of seven players under contract for the 2020-21 National League campaign.

That caused some surprised amongst supporters, who were under the impression that Grant, who finished the 2019-20 campaign as Wrexham’s top scorer, was out of contract.

Grant, who ended the season on loan at Accrington Stanley, took up the option in his favour to extend his stay - believed to be 12 months - at The Racecourse, last summer, saying: “I took the option I had in my favour straight away.

“I said to the manager that it wasn’t a case of me hanging around because I’m not the type of person to make the club wait or myself wait, I’m the type of person who needs to know what’s happening in the future.

“This is a massive club, make no mistake about it, and I said to the manager that I want to be a part of taking it to the next level if he wanted me.”

But it turns out that Grant’s option was a two-year extension, a statement from the club confirming: “There’s been no change to Bobby Grant’s contract.

“His initial deal, signed in January 2019, ran to the end of the 2018-19 season, with an option to extend for two further seasons.

“Bobby took up that option last summer (2019) after talking with then-manager Bryan Hughes.

“He remains under contract until the end of the 2020-21 season as a result.”
