Morrell hints at more League Loanees

Wrexham Manager Andy Morrell has hinted that he may allow some of his younger players to spend time in the Welsh Premier League again this season.

Last year, defender Steve Tomassen enjoyed an excellent season as Airbus finished second in the League, whilst another young defender, Anthony Stephens, was an influential player for Prestatyn as he helped the Seasiders lift the Welsh Cup for the first time. Since the close of the season, both have returned to their parent club and although they have both missed out on European action, they have already enjoyed game time for Morrell as they stake their claim for a first team place at the Racecourse this year.

Speaking to Mark Currie of the Daily Post, the Dragons boss said; “Part of our plan is to get these young lads - some of whom are good players - into our first team and if we do that it will be great.

"If it means them having a year in the Welsh Premier League then so be it. It's there they can play in men's football and know what it's like to get three points on a Saturday if someone's job is on the line.

"It's completely different to kids' football and it's worked for us in the past.

"Stephens and Tomassen and Nick Rushton (Newtown and Airbus) have all come back from there as better players and we'll do a similar thing this year with a couple of the young lads."
