DIOR ANGUS insists he and his team-mates were already driven by a desire to be successful for Wrexham before added financial incentives were put in place by the new owners.

Hollywood stars Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds, who completed their takeover at The Racecourse last month, have created a Players Bonus Scheme to boost the Reds' promotion push.

Those that play in any game will now receive £200 for each win and £50 for a draw, as long as Wrexham remain in a play-off position, and a bonus pot of £250,000 if promotion is achieved this season.

Angus, who joined Wrexham from Barrow on transfer deadline day in the winter window, welcomed having player bonuses but the striker says he was always hungry to do well for his new club.

"It is a good move by them," said Angus.

"The bonus structure wasn't in place anyway. It is normally sorted in pre-season, I think that was probably to do with the takeover but they have sorted it and it is all good stuff.

"It will put a bit of fire in the boys' belly but we want to win football games anyway - we are in the play-offs.

"It can come across that the bonus has been sorted, that is the incentive they need, but it's not. We are playing for this massive club.

"We just keep going about our business and producing for the club and the fans."

On the decision to publicly reveal the sum of money up for grabs, Angus added: "I have spoken to a few people about it and I think it is more of an American thing to know what players earn.

"It is not the sort of done thing here but it is what it is, it is done."
