CARLOS Edwards paid tribute to the Wrexham supporters after he finalised his move to League One champions Luton Town.
The Trinidad right wing-back, who quickly became a fans favourite after joining the club from Defence Force in 2000, said it was the lure of Premiership football that made him bring an end to his five-year stay at the Racecourse.
Edwards, 26, said: 'I've had five great years at Wrexham and I really love the club and the town.
'But I couldn't pass up this opportunity to play at a higher level. That's all I've wanted to do throughout my career and I hoped it could be with Wrexham.
'Luton have gone up from League One into the Championship and that's just one step away from the Premiership, which is where I have always wanted to play.'
He added: 'I'd like to thank people like Joey Jones, Brian Flynn and Kevin Reeves for giving me my chance in English football. Wrexham will always be the first result I look for.
'I wish I could say goodbye to all the Wrexham fans personally because of the great times I've had with them.
'Winning the LDV Vans Trophy was a high point of my career and any time I'm free I'll be back at the Racecourse to watch them.' GOODBYE: Carlos Edwards. OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW: Chris Armstrong has been released but keeper Mike Ingham, inset, has been brought in.
