Wrexham AFC welcome Luke Bolton and Jack Marriott
Wrexham AFC have announced the signings of defender Luke Bolton from Salford City and striker Jack Marriott.
Bolton joins the North Wales club on a deal lasting until the end of the 2025/26 season, while Marriott's contract extends until the end of the 2024/25 season.
Luke Bolton made twenty appearances for Salford City in Sky Bet League Two this season.
Speaking about his move, Bolton expressed his excitement: “I’m buzzing to be here and how the club has kicked on League Two to be second in the table is something I want to be a part of. Hopefully, we can push on and go for the title.”
Bolton, 24, a product of the Manchester City Academy, spent four years as a professional with the Citizens, including loan stints at Wycombe Wanderers, Luton Town, and Dundee United, where he scored his first professional goal.
He also represented England at Under-20 level and was part of the Three Lions squad that won the Toulon Tournament.
Manager Phil Parkinson commented on Bolton's signing: "Luke’s a really good addition to the squad. He’s going to be a player that adds real pace and dynamism to the team.”
Striker Jack Marriott, 29, joins Wrexham from Fleetwood Town.
The Beverley-born player, who won the EFL Sky Bet League One Golden Boot award at Peterborough United, brings a strong attacking presence to Wrexham.
Reflecting on his move, Marriott said: “I’m really pleased to be here and happy to get the deal over the line. The club’s performances, the way they play as a team is a real key factor for me signing.”
Marriott's career includes time at Ipswich Town, Luton Town, where he earned numerous awards, and a significant stint at Peterborough United.
His 27 goals in one season for the Posh were followed by a crucial role in Derby County’s push to the 2019 Championship Play-Off Final.
Phil Parkinson added about Marriott: "We’re really pleased to bring Jack to the club. He’s got proven experience at a higher level and comes to us looking to make a real contribution in our second half of the season."
