A statement on the Shakers website read: "Andy leaves with our best wishes for the future and our thanks for his service over the last two years."

Morrell told the Wrexham website: "This was my first professional club so I've got a lot to be thankful for to this club, so maybe I can give a little bit back.

"It's no secret that the team have been under-achieving for the past few years.

"[But] I have got a really good feeling about the place and hopefully we can get back into the Football League."

Merthyr-born Gall, who began his career as a Newcastle trainee, will now play for York's Blue Square Premier rivals.

"I'm delighted to see both Andy and Kevin commit to us for the new campaign," said Wrexham manager Dean Saunders.

"Supporters will know all about Andy from his previous spell with the club and he is just the sort of character that you want on your team.

"Kevin can operate on either flank, likes to get forward and knows this league from his time with York."
