‘An opportunity I couldn’t turn down’ – Former Charlton captain Dobson makes League One Wrexham switch

George Dobson has joined League One rivals Wrexham after pulling out of his pre-contract agreement with with Hungarian side Fehervar.

The former Charlton captain was due to join Fehervar on July 1 but pulled out of the deal due to personal circumstances.

Nathan Jones repeatedly expressed his desire to keep Dobson at The Valley but the 26-year-old, who made 144 appearances, left as a free agent at the end of last season.

“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.

“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 Parkison 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.”

Charlton host Wrexham in League One on October 26.
