With two fine away wins, you might have missed these three National League stories from the past week.

Former Macc Man Extends Wrexham Stay

Wrexham midfielder Sam Wedgbury has signed a contract extension which will see him stay at the National League club until the end of the 2018-19 season.

Wedgbury, 28, joined in May 2017 following his release by Forest Green Rovers.

The former Macclesfield Town player has scored once in 31 league appearances for Wrexham this season.

"I'm buzzing to get it signed," Wedgbury said.

"You never know what offers you might get come the end of the season, but I wouldn't want to be anywhere else."

Hartlepool Sack Harrison

Hartlepool United boss Craig Harrison has left the National League club with immediate effect following a 2-0 defeat by FC Halifax Town.

The 40-year-old took charge in May 2017 after six years with Welsh Premier League champions The New Saints.

Tuesday's defeat left Pools 19th in the National League table, three points off the drop zone with 13 games to play.

"Hartlepool United would like to place on record its thanks to Craig for his hard work," a club statement said.

Pools, who were relegated from the English Football League last season, remain up for sale as owners HUFC Holdings Limited look for new investment.

Daggers Lose Whitely

Ebbsfleet United have signed forward Corey Whitely from fellow National League side Dagenham & Redbridge for an undisclosed fee.

The 26-year-old scored 24 goals in 72 games for the Daggers after joining from Enfield Town in 2016.

"He's an exciting player with a great couple of seasons behind him that I hope he'll build on here," Fleet boss Daryl McMahon told the club website.
