ELLIOTT DURRELL is just focused on the future and refuses to dwell on the past after completing a dream return to Wrexham.

The 31-year-old midfielder, who first arrived at The Racecourse in January 2014 but was released at the end of the 2014-15 season by Gary Mills, has penned a one-year deal with the Reds after leaving Altrincham.

Since his first spell at the club, Durrell has played for Tamworth, Chester, Macclesfield – with whom he won the National League – York City and Altrincham, a club he helped clinch promotion to the fifth tier at the end of the 2019-20 campaign.

Durrell made 30 league appearances and scored four goals during an injury-hit first spell with Wrexham and he is glad to be back after being snapped up by former Reds' team-mate Dean Keates, but there is no looking back.

"Last time I was here I had injuries which didn't help," said Durrell.

"Andy Morrell signed me and he wasn't here for too long. Maybe that disrupted it a little bit more than I would have liked but that has gone now.

"I am just looking forward to the future."

Wrexham narrowly avoided relegation in 2019-20 following the worst season in the club's history but that didn't faze Durrell who jumped at the chance to head back to north Wales.

"The club speaks for itself," said Durrell.

"Having been here before, I know all about the club; the fans are probably the most passionate fans I have ever played for.

"If you can go to a club that has got stature as big as Wrexham, it is a no brainer.

"Maybe because it didn't work out as I would have liked last time, I want to come back and set the record straight.

"It would be great to be part of a successful Wrexham team that gets the club back to where it wants to be."

Durrell is a playmaker who often featured on the wing under Kevin Wilkin during his first spell at Wrexham but he will play wherever required when the 2020-21 campaign kicks off in October.

"I was played on the wing a lot," said Durrell.

"As you get older, your game changes a little bit and you mature into a different player.

"You keep your basics but I have always been known for my deliveries and for a lot of teams, I played myself onto the wing if you like with my set-pieces and deliveries.

"I don't mind where I play as long as I play and I am playing well; I will play wherever is required."

Durrell added: "I like to pick up little pockets in between the lines and make things happen.

"I don't mind drifting out wide, I am happy to play wherever needed and wherever selected.

"I just want to have an impact on the game and that is what I will be looking to do, and get some wins for the club."
