ROB LAINTON wants to go "one step further" with Wrexham next season and win promotion after committing his future to the club.

The 29-year-old goalkeeper has put pen to paper on a new two-year deal after enjoying a hugely successful 2018-19 campaign.

Initially brought in on loan from Port Vale last summer before Wrexham took over his contract in November, Lainton kept 25 of the Reds' club record equalling 26 clean sheets.

Lainton, named the Player of the Season, helped Wrexham reach the play-offs where they lost 1-0 in the eliminator to Eastleigh, but he says Bryan Hughes' side will come back stronger next term.

“I’m really happy to get the deal done and secure my future with Wrexham Football Club for the next two seasons at least," said Lainton.

“We came so close last season. Now we have a chance to build on that and go one step further. I have sat down with the manager and I was really happy he wanted me to stay and that he offered me a long term deal at the club.

“Equalling the (club) clean sheet record actually meant a lot to me but with the defence in front of me and the goalkeeping set-up we have here at this club, it’s a team effort.

“I’m looking forward to coming back after the summer refreshed and ready to go. We’ll get a good pre-season in the legs and give ourselves the best possible preparations for when the season starts.”
