LUKE YOUNG has signed for Cheltenham Town after his successful six-year spell at Wrexham came to an end.

The midfielder wasn't offered a new deal by Reds' boss Phil Parkinson at the end of last season and has made the switch to Cheltenham who will line-up in League Two next season following relegation last term.

It marks a fresh challenge for Young who was first-team captain at The Racecourse.

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.

After making 38 appearances when Wrexham secured the National League title following a record-breaking 2022-23 National League campaign, Young played 25 games - 12 from the start - last season as the Reds finished runners-up in League Two.

The longest serving player in the squad, there was no shortage of personal recognition with Young 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.

Wrexham will be playing in League One in 2024-25 while Cheltenham will be aiming to go straight back up after finishing fourth bottom in the third tier last season, two points away from safety.

Young, who played for hometown club Plymouth Argyle before joining Torquay, told Cheltenham's official X account:  "I am really excited to get this deal done and dusted, and over the line.

"I am really looking forward to the start of the season and hopefully it can be a successful one."
