Default Wrexham paying more than League One sides

There’s an interesting article in the Leader, with an interview with Sam Finley who apparently nearly signed for us under Ricketts, but ended up going to Accrington. Here’s the most interesting comment:

"It was less money than Wrexham but a chance to play in League One.”

Hopefully that will put to bed some of the unsubstantiated rumours about wage caps that are apparently holding us back.

Doesn’t really though does it. They may have purposely offered him buttons knowing they are League One so his eyes light up and money isn’t a factor in his decision. They probably took a risk on him.

Stanley have a notoriously small budget, and their manager has been in the press before bemoaning competing against other teams

we are probably paying lower League 2 wages

Doesn’t make sense . I thought players don’t sign for us because of what they have read on Red Passion.

The lure of league football is hard to compete with.
Hopefully we can give someone 2 years and some security.

It is interesting, but without context it is difficult to draw conclusions.

If he said "And I'm Accringtons top earner, but I would have been the lowest paid at Wrexham", it would be different.

Its like the outbidding of Salford for Redmond story.

exactly,its about playing in the football league, you have to pay more to attract the better players to drop down,you can easily loan players cause they are going back to the football league, loan players arent the answer for me

The Redmond story was made up (or at least, no-one posted any evidence for it). This one is verified.

He would almost certainly have come to us.

"I met Sam and he offered me a very good contract. We had a good chat and I was pleased with everything he was saying, talking about getting Wrexham into the Football League… that [offer] was the best on the table."
