Aberystwyth Town Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of Wrexham academy product Jack Thorn on a permanent basis. The Chester-born 19-year-old joins the Seasiders following a short loan spell at Latham Park with Newtown AFC last season.
After starting his career at Wrexham at the age of seven as a left-back, he progressed through the ranks at The Racecourse and was often deployed as a left winger, sometimes playing centrally.
Son of former Wimbledon Crazy Gang FA Cup winner Andy, Jack followed his father’s footsteps in the professional game and was named as an unused substitute in the FA Cup against Newport and FA Trophy against Boston in December 2018.
He made his first senior appearance during the 2018/19 campaign against Harrogate Town coming on as a late substitute for The Robins.
All at Park Avenue are excited to welcome Jack to our ranks, as he goes into the squad ahead of tonight's matchup with Newtown! Live commentary of the game will be provided by Rob Phillips and Andy Legg on BBC Radio Wales from 19:00 - kick-off at 19:45!
