Newton shirt 03Manager Gary Mills has made his first new signing of the summer by persuading left back Sean Newton to join the
club on a one-year deal.


The 26-year-old was with Lincoln City last season, but finished the campaign on loan at League One Notts County.

A former youngster with Chester, he made only a handful of appearances before switching to Droylsden in 2008, where he had previously been on loan.

There was a spell with Barrow, before he settled at AFC Telford United and played over 100 games for the Bucks Head club.

In 2012, Sean switched to Stockport County and a year later was on the move again to Lincoln City, playing nearly 80 games for the Red Imps.

Although at the end of his second season, Notts County took him on loan to help their battle against relegation and he played 10 times for the Magpies.

“Once I heard that Wrexham and the gaffer were interested in me, then there was only one club for me,” said the defender.

“There were offers from other clubs, and others at a higher level, but this place ticked all the boxes.

“I’ve played against Wrexham plenty of times and always thought this was a place I would love to play.

“The stadium, the fans; even when I was I youngster at Chester I would come off the pitch here and be thinking ‘I wish I was at Wrexham’.

“Maybe I shouldn’t have been thinking that, but it’s good to finally be here.”

As Sean finished off signing the paperwork, his new manager talked about his first signing.

“He was someone I’d wanted to sign when I was at my previous clubs,” said the boss.

“For whatever reason that wasn’t possible, but I’ve got my man at Wrexham now,so I’m delighted.

“An attacking left back who has always done well against my teams. Brilliant on set plays, a good athlete and I think he’ll thrive on the way my teams play.”

With over 300 appearances to his credit, Sean brings a wealth of experience to the team.
