JAMES JENNINGS is the latest player to commit his future to Wrexham.

The 31-year-old left-back was given more time to consider his contract offer due to a family bereavement and has now put pen to paper on a new one-year deal at The Racecourse.

Initially brought in on loan from Cheltenham Town in January 2017, Jennings signed a two-year contract with the Reds following his release by the League Two club at the end of the season.

Jennings made 37 league appearances last season, helping Wrexham secure a play-off spot for the first time in six years where they lost 1-0 to Eastleigh in the eliminator.

On re-signing for the club, Jennings said: “I’m delighted to be back. I’m really happy that the manager wanted me to come back for my fourth season at the club.

“We can now build on what we achieved last season with the lads that are staying and some new additions. It’s still raw, but I’ve had some time to reflect on it and we weren’t too far off.

“Next season we have to aim to go one step further now. It’s unfinished business for most of us, hopefully I can play my part in gaining what we all want for the club.”

Jennings is the fifth player to accept new terms with the club ahead of the 2019-20 campaign, joining Rob Lainton, Mark Carrington, Doug Tharme and Paul Rutherford in doing so.

Midfielder Luke Summerfield, who picked up an injury in the Eastleigh defeat, will be monitored by Wrexham's medical team before concluding his contract talks.
