Directors for the Day at the first home game of the season against Gateshead were lifelong Wrexham fan, Kelly Jones and her partner Michael Cropper. Michael is a Burnley exile and Wrexham convert, and joined the WST when Kelly's name was drawn out of the hat.

They were hosted for the evening in the Boardroom and Director's box by WST Governing Body member Robin Wiggs. During their time in the Boardroom they met a number of key figures, including Wrexham and Gateshead directors as well as Kevin Wilkin and Don Bircham. They enjoyed the Directors' meal and hospitality before the game and watched the match from a prime position in the Directors' Box.

Speaking afterwards, Kelly said "We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and it was great to see how the club is run behind the scenes on a match day. Unfortunately, the match result was disappointing, but it would appear that things are coming together off the pitch and hopefully it will soon follow suit on the pitch! It was nice to see the room full of people with passion for the club, and I feel that this is a great experience for any Wrexham fan."
