The club can confirm the following in relation to the Retained List.

Midfielder Jay Harris has been offered a new contract.

Both Dean Keates and Kyle Storer have been released.

Joe Clarke has been seen by the manager and after an amicable discussion further talks will be held over the next few weeks.

That leaves Neil Ashton, Andy Bishop and Elliott Durrell still to meet with the manager.

"As I said after the Telford game, it's been an honour and privilege for me to play and captain this great club for the last five years."

"My only regret is that I didn't achieve what I honestly thought I would when I first joined and that was playing my part in a team that got this club and you fans back into the Football League."

"Thanks for your support personally in the last five years and welcoming my family when they've come to games."

"I sincerely hope that 2015/16 is the year Wrexham get back to whet they belong, in the Football League."


A great servant of the club, both on and off the pitch, Dean came to the Racecourse after an illustrious career with Walsall (twice), Hull City, Kidderminster Harriers, Lincoln City, Peterborough United and Wycombe Wanderers.

That was in the summer of 2010, shortly have being released by the Adams Park club and he was quickly named as the club captain.

He has taken us into the Play-Offs three times, to Wembley three times and was the triumphant captain lifting the FA trophy in 2013.

No one will forget the occasion when remained on the pitch after breaking his collarbone against Newport County in October 2011 and we had used up all our three substitutes!

The term 'model profession' could have been invented for him, as some 600 career appearances will testify to.
