Wrexham manager Dean Keates has made his first signing of the close season with versatile full-back James Hurst joining on a one-year contract.

The 25-year-old, who can also play on the wing, spent the second half of the 2016-17 at Dover Athletic.

Hurst has also had spells with West Bromwich Albion, Crawley, Torquay and AFC Telford United.

"He's at a point where he wants to put down roots and he's looking forward to the challenge here," Keates said.

"He's north-west based, so we had a chat with him this week.

"He came across well and I'm looking forward to working with him."
