Reds' captain Shaun Pearson has been offered a new contract along with Christian Dibble, Cameron Green, Reece Hall-Johnson, Rob Lainton, Jamie Reckord, Devonte Redmond and Luke Young

Six players are already under contract at The Racecourse for the 2021/22 campaign - Dior Angus, Ryan Austin, Jake Bickerstaff, Max Cleworth, Jordan Davies and Jordan Ponticelli.

The club will be exercising the option for the 2021/22 season in the contract of two players - Tyler French and Dan Jarvis.

Keanu Marsh-Brown, Gold Omotayo and Dawid Szczepaniak have been invited to return for pre-season training while the club will "continue to support Kwame Thomas as he seeks to return to fitness, and provide him with the opportunity to earn a permanent contract during the 2021/22 season" after the striker ruptured his Achilles at Easter.

A club statement read: "Wrexham AFC would like to place on record its thanks to the players who are leaving us for their efforts and commitment during the previous season and throughout their time at the Racecourse, and wish them well for their future careers."
