Fyfield York 02Manager Gary Mills welcomed another new face to the Racecourse this afternoon, when he signed centre half Jamal Fyfield on a one-year contract.

The 26-year-old spent last season with Welling United, playing over 30 league games for the Wings and helping them to stay in the Vanarama Premier in dramatic style.

A former Leyton Orient apprentice, Jamal went into non-league football with Maidenhead United before being picked up by Mills to join York City in 2010.

It was during his four-year spell at Bootham Crescent that the Leyton-born player aided the Minstermen back into the Football League, when they won promotion via the 2012 play-offs and lifted the FA Trophy in a memorable week for the Yorkshire club.

A year at Grimsby Town was followed by another season at Park View Road with Welling and now onto the Racecourse.

Of his arrival in north Wales, Jamal said: “I'm delighted to be here, I’ve always looked on Wrexham as a big club, the ground is beautiful and I’ve also seen the training ground, which is great – it’s got everything I need."

“Obviously I’ve played under the gaffer before at York City, so I was hoping he might give my phone a ring and I was happy that he did."

“We got promotion, as well as wining the FA Trophy, so it was a successful time at York, hopefully we can repeat that here as well.”

Also happy to get the paperwork completed and be reunited with the player, Gary said: " I know Jamal very well from our time together at York and he has progressed since then."

"He is somebody I feel has under achieved, so him coming here at the age of 26, knowing me and knowing the way I like to play - I think this is an excellent signing for us."
