After months of radio silence, Wrexham have finally completed their first signing of the summer transfer window. Ever since the Dragons' Football League return was confirmed in April, the club have been linked with a host of players in the divisions above.

But speculation did not develop into anything more until midway through July, when Wrexham announced the arrival of centre-back Will Boyle from Championship Huddersfield Town. The deal came as a bit of a shock.

He no doubt would have found League One and perhaps even Championship clubs willing to take him this summer. Instead, he became the latest player to be seduced by the promise of a bit of Hollywood glamour in north Wales.

So, is Boyle as big a coup as had been suggested? Or is he simply returning to his natural level following a season in the sun? GOAL takes a closer look at his career below.
