CHRIS SANG thought his season was over so the striker is eager to make the most of his unexpected opportunity with Wrexham.

The 21-year-old has been without a club since he was released by Barnsley at the end of the 2019-20 campaign.

Keeping fit by training with Tranmere Rovers, the free agent was approached by Reds’ boss Dean Keates who was short of attacking options due to leading scorer Kwame Thomas rupturing an Achilles’ and facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines, and Jordan Ponticelli also missing through injury.

Sang, whose last competitive action came during a loan spell with Guiseley last season, jumped at the chance to join Wrexham on non-contract terms.

“I have been at Tranmere for the last few months training with the first team just to keep myself fit,” said Sang.

“I last played a few games when I was at a few clubs in pre-season so I am just happy to be here and involved with Wrexham.

“I am fairly up to speed and I am looking to get some minutes here.

“I thought the season was over for me and I was just looking forward to next season, and getting myself ready for it.

“Then I got the call that Wrexham needed a striker so I was excited to get in.

“I was dying to get here when I got the call and with Wrexham challenging for promotion, there is nothing bigger, nothing better.”

Sang, who came through Wigan’s youth academy and made his senior debut for Bury in 2017, was an unused substitute as Wrexham lost 3-0 against Stockport on Saturday.

He made his Reds' debut as a late substitute in Tuesday's 4-0 win at Halifax.

“There are still a few games left so I am sure I will play my part in them,” added Sang.

“There are nine games to show everyone what I have got so hopefully I can help the team first.

“Getting beat happens, you have just got to bounce back.

“We have got some massive games to play so hopefully we get the results that we need.”
