CAMERON GREEN was itching to make his first start of the season so he could finally experience playing in front of the “phenomenal”, “crazy” and “passionate” Wrexham supporters.

The left-back signed a new one-year contract in the summer after catching the eye towards the end of the 2020-21 campaign, in front of empty stands with no fans in attendance due to coronavirus restrictions, as the Reds just missed out on a play-off spot.

But Green has had to bide his time this term with his team-mates playing in front of bumper crowds at The Racecourse and receiving tremendous backing on their travels.

His only action in the opening few months was a brief substitute appearance in the 3-1 defeat at Grimsby Town on September 14 but that changed when the 22-year-old made his first start under Phil Parkinson in Wrexham’s 2-1 FA Cup first round defeat against Harrogate Town.

Reds’ fans once again turned out in their droves at Wetherby Road and Green was delighted to play in front of them rather than watching from the sidelines.

“It is hard when you are not playing because all you want to do is play,” said Green, who came off the bench at King’s Lynn Town to score his first ever Wrexham goal in Saturday’s 6-2 win.

“Feels good to be on the score sheet hey?” Green tweeted after the game on Saturday where he scored the Reds’s sixth goal deep into stoppage time.

“Football is so up and down, I am an emotional and enthusiastic person so it may affect me when I am not playing because I am so passionate.

“Especially when the team is not doing so well because you really want to help and you feel helpless when you are not playing.

“I look at the fans every week and it is burning me inside. I just want to give my all for them because I am in awe.

“I am a football fan, I don’t support a team but when I look at a fanbase like that; they travel north, south - they are phenomenal and it is just a pleasure to play in front of them.

“I look at them and I think ‘they are crazy, but I love them’.

“I am not from Wrexham and I am not going to try and I say I understand what it is (like) but they are so passionate.

“Giving your all for them is the least you can do. It has been tough for them, this club does not deserve to be in the National League so if I can be a part of getting them back where they deserve to be then that will mean the most to me.

“ Let’s hope we can kick on and climb this league now.”
