Wrexham have bolstered their defensive options for the 2019/20 National League campaign by signing Michael Chambers on a one-year-deal.

Chambers, 25, has spent the summer attracting the attention of many clubs, including Wrexham, and played on trial for the Reds against Fleetwood Town earlier this month.

Born in London, Chambers started his career with Dulwich Hamlet and impressed enough for Crystal Palace to splash out a £100,000 transfer fee for his services in 2012.

The centre-half spent time on-loan with Harrow Borough and Welling before returning to Hamlet in 2016.

On joining Wrexham AFC, Chambers said: “I’m delighted to be here. I came in for a few days and played against Fleetwood and it felt right and felt conformable.

“I have been and played some games for EFL teams after that, and there was interested from them, but after being here and seeing the town and spending time with the other players, it was always in my mind that I wanted to sign here.”

Discussing his playing style he added: “I think I’m what they call a modern centre-half. I’m left sided and can get the ball down and play.”

Manager Bryan Hughes said: “I’m delighted about Michael signing.

"He had loads of interest from a lot of clubs in our league and from League Two, so it’s fantastic news that he is here and all signed up as a Wrexham player.

“He is a very good footballer, intelligent with the ball and a commanding defender who will give us balance being left-footed. He adds even more quality to what was already statistically the best defence in the league last season.”
