Wrexham AFC: Newton becomes a skipper

Updated: June 30, 2016

Wrexham AFC have announced defender Sean Newton as the club’s new captain ahead of the 2016/17 season.  


The announcement came on Thursday night via the Dragons’ official Twitter account, @Wrexham_AFC.



Newton was one of Gary Mills’ first signings when he became manager in May 2015, after leaving Gateshead.


The left back came to the Racecourse Ground from Vanarama National League rivals Lincoln City.


Connor Jennings was previously wearing the armband but that all changed when he left Wrexham for Tranmere Rovers last month.  


So far in the 27-year-old’s spell at the North Wales club, he has made 46 appearances including three goals from last season.  


The former Chester and Stockport County player has been known for his curling free kicks including one stunning goal away to Kidderminster Harriers.

Is Mills picking Newton as the new Wrexham captain a good decision?
