Hartlepool United have further boosted their attacking options as Chris Wreh signs on a permanent basis. Son of former Liberia and Arsenal attacker, Christopher Wreh, the forward joins John Askey's side ahead of the 2023/24 season with an option to extend the contract for a further year.
Born in New York, Wreh started his career with Aylesbury before spells at Barton Rovers, Rushden & Diamonds, Newport Pagnell, and Rushall. More recently, Wreh was at Banbury during the 2021/22 season, netting 23 goals and claiming 16 assists.
His form at Banbury saw Southend snap him up at the beginning of last season, and he now joins Pools upon expiry of his contract. Wreh is known for his pace, power, and eye for goal, and he'll be an asset for Askey's side this season.
'Over the moon to sign. I know how unbelievable the fans are. My mate, Pete Kioso told me a lot of good things about the Poolies. I just want to work hard, score goals and give my all for the team.'
John Askey commented:
'Delighted to bring Chris in. He had a great goalscoring record at Banbury and will add a lot to the squad. He comes with National League experience following his spell at Southend and we know he can be a great asset to the team.'
