Football: Who Is Jacob Mendy From Wrexham FC?
Born in Fiji Kunda on December 27, 1996, left-back Jacob Mendy has played for Boreham Wood Wealdstone and has qualified to play for the Gambia and Spain internationally.
Wrexham AFC has officially announced the three-year contract for Jacob Mendy's signing. The versatile 25-year-old, who can play multiple roles, joins from Boreham Wood for an unknown price and becomes the Red Dragons' sixth acquisition of the summer transfer window.
Before relocating to the UK, Mendy spent some time in the Atletico Madrid academy. He has since played non-league football for Carshalton Athletic and Wealdstone. He spent the previous campaign with Boreham Wood, contributing to Luke Garrard's team's ninth-place Vanarama National League result and memorable Emirates FA Cup journey.
"I'm feeling extremely fantastic," Mendy remarked after arriving in Wrexham. I'm relieved to have finished it and am eager to start immediately. Because Wrexham is a massive Club with a large fan following, "it means a lot. I'm anxious to get to know everyone because there are excellent individuals here.
Phil Parkinson, the manager of Wrexham AFC, continued, "We're delighted with the signing of Jacob. Although it took a lot of effort, Jacob has some great qualities that will benefit the squad. We are excited to work with him because he is a player who is highly motivated to succeed.
Spanish, Portuguese, English, and Mandinka, a language that is widely spoken in West Africa, are all told by Mendy with ease. During the long away journey to Weymouth, he began singing aboard the team bus at Boreham Wood. The World's Greatest was the song he selected. Although it's a big goal, everything is conceivable considering Mendy's journey.
Everyone at Wrexham AFC warmly welcomes Jacob and his family.
