wfc1864THE club will be staging an Open Day on Sunday, 5 August and the hope is that supporters will take this opportunity to come along to the Racecourse and meet the players.

There is even the chance for supporters to take part in a match on the pitch against a team of Former Players. Gates will open at 10.00am with Andy Morrell leading the squad in a training session on the pitch from 10.30am to 11.30am.They will then head for the sidelines to sign autographs and have their photograph taken with the fans.

There will also be guided tours of both the Yale and Mold Road stands, with groups being lead by members of our Former Players Association.

Back on the pitch and the Junior Dragons will be taking part in a penalty shootout competition. Supporters who fancy themselves as the next Mark Creighton, Glen Little or Andy Morrell are invited to help raise funds for the club and buying themselves a spot in the Fans side to take on the Former Players.For just £100, up to 22 supporters will make up the Fans team, playing one 20 minute half against the Ex-Reds.

All players will receive a voucher that they can exchange for one of the new adidas 2012/13 Wrexham shirts, once these become available.

Of these 22 places, 11 will be available to secure online by clicking HERE, while the other 11 can be claimed from the Club shop, either in person or over the phone 01978 262129.

Please note that the Yale Car Park will be closed to traffic, as there should be a number of stalls and attractions taking place behind the Yale Stand, including a bouncy castle and face painting for the kids.Due to the continued use of the Racecourse pitch on a year round basis, Andy Morrell has made a special request to all supporters to please not encroach onto the playing surface at any point during the day.

¢‚¬Å“We hope everyone enjoys their day at the ground, but please could I ask supporters to refrain from coming onto the grass,¢‚¬ he said.

¢‚¬Å“The groundstaff have a hard enough job keeping the surface in a good condition, so we can all help them by staying behind the advertising boards.¢‚¬Å“In turn this will help the players during the tough winter months.¢‚¬

Parking for all supporters will be available on the University car park next door.
