GEORGE DOBSON said Wrexham is the club in the Football League that “everyone wants to be at” after becoming Phil Parkinson’s third new signing of the summer.

The midfielder, who spent the last three seasons with Charlton Athletic where he played 144 games in all competitions and was Addicks captain, has signed a three-year contract at The Racecourse.

Wrexham have become a global sensation under Hollywood owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney and switching to north Wales had plenty of appeal to Dobson, who played under Parkinson at Sunderland.

“Looking from afar, it is the club in the EFL that I feel everyone wants to be at,” said the 26-year-old.

“Knowing the manager and a few of the players, I have really enjoyed seeing the rise of the club.

“It is a fascinating project with Ryan and Rob, and everything they are doing for the whole place is amazing.

“I have enjoyed the documentary and I have enjoyed watching from afar but now to be a part of it is amazing.

“When I knew that the club was interested, I made it clear to the manager that I wanted to come and he obviously wanted me too.

“It was a real quick process. We got it sorted quickly and I can’t wait to get started now.”

Dobson is looking forward to working with Parkinson once again while there are also a few familiar faces in the Reds’ changing room.

“I played under the gaffer at Sunderland and we had a really good relationship,” said Dobson.

“I know Elliot Lee and Eoghan O’Connell from Charlton and I played with Ollie Palmer at Wimbledon.

“It makes it a lot easier to settle when you know a few of the players.

“I just felt like a no brainer for me.”

Wrexham are preparing for a first season in League One for 19 years after clinching back-to-back promotions for the first time in the club’s history.

No stranger to the third tier, Dobson knows it won’t be easy for the Reds but he is aiming high.

“I wouldn’t be signing here if I didn’t think the club could get to the Championship,” said Dobson.

“It is a very tough league this year with some really strong teams in it but with what the gaffer has been saying to me and looking at the squad, I feel like we can have a really successful season.

“The way the club is run, having a committed group who play for each other, players and staff who connect really well and a great fanbase can take you so far.

“I feel that is what they are building here and there is lots of momentum.

“We have got to look to carry on growing that momentum.”

When asked what supporters can expect from him, Dobson added: “I am full-hearted on the pitch and I like to try and bring a bit of quality as well.

“I am looking forward to hopefully showing the supporters that soon.”
