Dragons snap up Dibble
Andrew Dibble celbrates success in the 1988 Littlewoods Cup final

Wrexham have confirmed the signing of former Wales goalkeeper Andy Dibble on a 12-month contract.

The 37-year-old from Cwmbran has been the goalkeeping coach at Stockport County for the past two seasons, while also acting as cover for both Carlo Nash and Lee Jones, playing over 20 games.

With over 350 senior appearances for 12 League clubs, plus spells in Scotland with both Rangers and Aberdeen, Dibble is best remembered for his heroics during Luton's 1988 Littlewoods Cup win over Arsenal.

Dibble first made his name with Cardiff City and also enjoyed a good spell with Manchester City before serving clubs such as Sunderland, Huddersfield, and Middlesbrough on loan and playing for Barry in the League of Wales.

The Dragons have also agreed a new three-year deal with Stephen Roberts to finally end a long period of uncertainly for the young defender.

The Wales under-21 international said he is now relieved that the deal had been done, and is positive about the season ahead.

"We should have a decent chance of doing well next year," said Roberts.

"I've said all along that I want to stay at Wrexham.

"I've never had any intention of moving, but the contract had to be right for me.

"We've sorted something out and I'm more than happy to be staying."

Injury battle

Roberts was one of three players to agree new deals with Wrexham on Tuesday.

Goalkeeper Christian Rogers and midfielder Paul Barrett have signed one-year extensions as manager Denis Smith continues to assemble his squad for next season.

Assistant manager Kevin Russell said Barrett, a former Newcastle United midfielder, has plenty to offer the club.

"He did very at the end of the campaign, taking his chance when he got and fighting back from injury," said Russell.

"We all know that Paul is a clever a player and now we are looking forward to seeing him doing it on a regular basis."
