LUKE YOUNG does not class himself as the Wrexham legend he has been labelled by some supporters but the departing-captain leaves The Racecourse happy in the knowledge he achieved a lot during his time with the club.

The midfielder has been released by Phil Parkinson but bows out after enjoying a successful six-season spell with the Reds.

Brought in by Sam Ricketts from Torquay United in the summer of 2018, Young made 259 appearances and scored 22 goals for the club, helping Wrexham clinch back-to-back promotions for the first time in the club's history.

There was no shortage of personal accolades with the 31-year-old picking up back-to-back Player of the Season Awards in 2019-20 and 2020-21, two Goal of the Season Trophy accolades, and one Top Goalscorer gong,  and he was first-team captain for the last three years under Parkinson.

Success, both on a individual note and with the team, has earned Young legendary status but he's having none of it.

“It is nice to hear,” said Young. “But I wouldn’t go as far as say I am a legend of the club.

"At the end of the day, I have just come in and tried to do my best for Wrexham and let my actions do the talking out on the pitch.

"It has been an unbelievable six years, brilliant for me personally and for the club.

"If people on the outside looking in - fans or whoever - call me a legend or whatever they want, then that is down to them.

"I have just come here to play football and be successful.

"I have done that and the club has certainly done that, and I think the club is only going to be even more successful."
