WREXHAM are trying to arrange a final pre-season friendly this Saturday before the start of an eagerly awaited 14th campaign in non-league.

The Reds drew 2-2 against Spennymoor Town at the weekend in what was the last scheduled outing of the summer before kicking off the National League season at home to Yeovil Town on Saturday August 21.

Goals from Luke Young and Jake Hyde put Wrexham in the driving seat but National League North outfit Spennymoor hit back to finish all square at Brewery Field.

It was Wrexham's fourth friendly and assistant manager Steve Parkin, in charge with Reds' boss Phil Parkinson isolating after contracting coronavirus, admits his side could do with another match ahead of the Yeovil clash.

"We need another game next Saturday, that is for sure," said Parkin.

"We will need a good week's training in the build-up to that.

"As I said to the lads, Spennymoor start their season next week. They are two weeks in front of us.

"There are a few that are a little bit despondent with the goals we conceded but I think we are well on the way to it being a decent pre-season."

Wrexham are limited in finding opponents to face with the Football League season getting underway last weekend and non-league sides a level below the Reds starting their campaigns this Saturday, but Parkin is confident of arranging a game.

"We are doing everything we possibly can to try and get one," he added.

"We have been in contact with several clubs that start their under 23s season on the following Tuesday so hopefully we can get a game for the weekend because we do need one.

"We always like to have an in-house game in the build-up to the start of the season because they tend to be quite feisty with players playing for places but we certainly don't want two."
