WHAT HAPPENED? The 36-year-old striker has shed light on his decision to join Wrexham. Despite receiving several offers, Fletcher expressed that the club's unique appeal and ambition were the deciding factors behind his move.

WHAT THEY SAID: "I had a few offers but at this stage of my career, I wasn't getting that buzz that I wanted to go and play somewhere. Wrexham came calling and I got that buzz straight away," Fletcher said.

"I was like 'I want to be part of that'. As soon as I got the phone call, I was down. I am one of those people that when I do something, I am 100 per cent. When the other clubs came calling, it wouldn't have been fair on them or me if I'd have just gone and sat there. I will give 100 per cent every time I step over that white line and I am just looking forward to the next game now," he added.
