Wrexham defender James Jennings has signed a new one-year deal with the National League club.

The 31-year-old joins goalkeeper Rob Lainton, Doug Tharme, Mark Carrington and Paul Rutherford in accepting new terms with the club, who lost to Eastleigh in the play-off qualifiers.

Jennings hoped to commit to the club earlier, but a family bereavement delayed the deal.

He initially joined Wrexham from Cheltenham Town in January 2017.

"I'm delighted to be back. I'm really happy that the manager wanted me to come back for my fourth season at the club," said Jennings.

Lainton, 29, initially joined on loan from Port Vale at the start of the 2018-19 season.

At the end of that campaign Lainton was acknowledged as their player of the season having equalled the club record for league clean sheets.

Jennings' fellow defender Kieran Kennedy has rejected Wrexham's offer of a new contract.
