Liam McAlinden and Bryce Hosannah were released by Wrexham, while Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds wrapped up their business during the January transfer window.

Consequently, what happened?
Both players—McAlinden, who made 11 appearances during the 2022–23 title run, and Hosannah, who made eight—were instrumental in the team’s promotion from the National League. Wrexham decided to honour McAlinden and Hosannah’s contracts in order to make it easier for them to potentially go to non-League clubs outside of the transfer window. As they become free agents, this ruling gives the players the opportunity to join with teams even outside of the regular transfer windows.

Manager Parkinson made McAlinden his first signing at Wrexham in July 2021. During his time with Wrexham, he made 64 appearances and scored one goal. He appeared in six games for the Red Dragons this season.

“I’d like to wish Liam all the best, he has been a great person to have around the squad over the last couple of years and has made a real contribution both on and off the field-we wish him all the best for the future,” Parkinson stated following McAlinden’s release.

Wrexham had a busy deadline day as they revealed two new signings in quick succession. They announced the arrival of forward Jack Marriott after confirming the acquisition of Luke Bolton from League Two opponent Salford City.

After defeating Salford City on Saturday away from home in a League Two match, Wrexham, who currently sit second in the standings, will try to close the gap with leaders Stockport County to two points.
