GEORGE Dobson said Wrexham is the side “everyone wants to come to” after he completed a free transfer to Charlton Athletic’s League One rivals. 

Former Addicks captain Dobson, 26, pulled out of a move to Hungarian side Fehérvár FC for personal reasons after he had signed a pre-contract agreement with them in March. 

Dobson played 144 times for the Addicks after joining from Sunderland in the summer of 2021. 

“I’m genuinely delighted. It’s the club in the EFL that everyone wants to come to and when I got the opportunity to join it was exciting,” Dobson said on Wrexham’s media channels. 

“When I spoke to the gaffer and he showed his interest it felt like an opportunity I couldn’t turn down. 

“I can’t wait to meet all the supporters and hopefully carry on the success of the club and have an enjoyable season.”

Wrexham boss Phil Parkinson has guided the club to successive promotions. He said: “George is a great signing for us. He’s developed really well as a player and is someone we have known about for a while.

“He plays with real personality. He is a great character to have in the building and he has captained Charlton before.

“Leadership quality in the group is so important and George will certainly bring that.”
