Wrexham have signed veteran goalkeeper Gavin Ward on a free transfer from League Two rivals Chester City.

Ward has signed an 18-month contract with Wrexham, having only joined Chester last summer from Tranmere Rovers.

The 37-year-old made just one appearance for the Blues and is now looking forward to aiding Wrexham's bid to stay in the league.

"I'm glad that things got sorted out so quickly and now I'm looking forward to helping the club retain its Football League place," Ward told the club's official website.

Trio on trial

Meanwhile, Dragons boss Brian Little has taken Danny Sonner, Stephen Cooke and Tommy Taylor on trial.

Midfield duo Sonner and Taylor, along with left-back Cooke, are out of contract and Little is keen to assess the three players.

Little said: "We have brought in three lads who are out of contract and looking to work.

"On top of looking for other players who are contracted, it's important for us to bring people in and out of the dressing room so people are on their toes."
