wfc_logo On the eve of the table-topping clash against Wimbledon AFC, the Chairmen of Wrexham FC and Wrexham Supporters' Trust have announced that talks have resumed and that further meetings are planned.

Following the announcement that Wrexham Football Club was for sale earlier in the year, both parties were keen to stress that talks were at an early stage and that the purpose of the discussion was to improve relationships and to agree a mutually beneficial way forward.

Ian Roberts, Chairman of Wrexham Football Club and Richard Owen, Chairman of Wrexham Supporters' Trust said that it was important that the two organisations developed a positive working relationship and that they worked together on key projects in the best interests of the club.

Last year Ian Roberts launched the Big Red Survey, the first time Wrexham Football Club had asked its fans for feedback. Wrexham Supporters' Trust has now completed analysing the results and plans to hold an open fans' forum with the football club to talk about the findings and to answer supporters' questions.

Ian Roberts said:

"Since becoming Chairman of Wrexham Football Club, I've attended a series of fans' forums and supporters' group meetings to listen to and get feedback from the fans. We've had our ups and downs, but I believe we're getting there and this is another big step forward for us."

Richard Owen said:

"Wrexham Supporters' Trust is proud to have conducted the first ever supporters' survey and believes it is a real step forward in our relationship with the club and its fans. We intend this to be the first of annual surveys, which we hope will help the club to market itself more effectively."

Wrexham Football Club and Wrexham Supporters' Trust are both keen to stress that no further details of the talks would be made public at this stage. However, they hope to be in a position to make a further statement in the next couple of months. Further details of the fans forum will be published in the press soon.
