Wrexham Sign Experienced Deverdics From Pools

6 months ago By Steven Coney

Wrexham have given their National League title hopes a big boost with the signing of Nicky Deverdics from Hartlepool United.

The 30-year-old midfielder has made 30 appearances for Pools this season, scoring two goals.

He played a large chunk of those games at left-back, however, earlier in the season and now goes straight into a promotion race with Wrexham having signed an 18-month deal after the clubs agreed on an undisclosed fee.

The Dragons are currently third in the table following Tuesday night’s goalless draw at Gateshead and are just three points off leaders Macclesfield Town.

Deverdics began his career at local club Newcastle United but made his name with Scottish side Gretna, helping them win promotion to the Scottish Premiership before making 26 appearances in the top-flight.

Following the club’s demise, Deverdics returned to England with League Two side Barnet but ended up playing abroad in Iceland and then the Faroe Islands as he looked to recapture his form.

His career was reignited at Dover Athletic where he made 96 appearances between May 2013 and June 2016.

He captained the Whites to the National League play-off semi-finals in 2015-16 before earning a move back into the EFL with Hartlepool.

The experienced midfielder remained with Pools following their relegation to the National League and leaves having made a total of 63 appearances.
