ACCRINGTON Stanley midfielder Paul Carden has this evening (Sunday) officially joined relegated League Two outfit Wrexham, who will be playing their football in the Conference next season.

Carden, 29, has only been back in East Lancashire for a week following a lengthy loan spell with Conference side Cambridge, where he was wanted on a permanent contract, but Carden opted against the move.

Instead the midfielder who ahs only been at Accrington for a year, opted to move to Wales due to family reasons.

“Wrexham have been watching me, it’s 40 minutes from my home and my wife and I have just had a little boy.”

He told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire: “I loved my time at Cambridge and I was gutted we didn’t go up.

“But Wrexham have been watching me, it’s 40 minutes from my home and my wife and I have just had a little boy.”

“Cambridge were brilliant, the manager was brilliant with me and so were the board, but basically it was a case of my family situation.

“I wouldn’t have signed there unless I felt the club had ambition and they have”

“It wasn’t anything to do with the money side of it, it was just the simple reason that to uproot my family would have been hard.”

“I wish Cambridge all the best as they’re a club that deserve success, the fans are brilliant!”



Vital Accrington Stanley would like to wish Paul the very best of luck in the future.
