The kids have got nothing like this to fall back on, in truth the last five years, barring one great afternoon in Cardiff, have been grim viewing. We support a club that has lost more games than it has won of late, is deep in debt and now plays on a three sided ground.
Try selling that to the kids!
With our clubs relegation to the Blue Square it is more important than ever that we work to encourage the youngsters to stick with it and support the club in its current misfortunes. The Junior Dragons is hoping to play a major part in this necessary work.
We do not want to see a lost generation.
As a result of this we are stepping up our activity this season. A new steering committee has been formed to run the Junior Dragons. The committee will also be represented at WST board level to underline the importance that the Trust places on the JD role.
The new look Junior Dragons will be launched at the clubs open day in August.
New members will receive a membership card, a team photo and their very own match by match record book.
During the season the Junior Dragons members will receive 4 newsletters, be invited to 4 members meetings as well as the annual Christmas Party and other exclusive Junior Dragon events throughout the year. We are also hoping to organise travel to specific away matches.
The Junior Dragons will have their own MySpace page and a regular column in the Evening Leader and in the clubs award winning match day programme. Certain matches during the season will be designated Junior Dragons games and the Junior Dragons will have the opportunity to become mascots at Wrexham home games.
The club are supporting us 100% with this work and both players and facilities have been placed at our disposal to enhance the experience for the kids. This is a key point of difference between supporting Wrexham and supporting a Premiership Club. The young United fan will never meet Rooney but the young Wrexham fan will get to meet his heroes. Its a huge advantage we have in this respect.
We hope that you will agree with us that this programme will go a long way to encourage todays young Wrexham fans to turn their back on the dreary Sky Premiership nonsense and stand by their club.
However, all of this costs money and we have, for the first time, had to introduce a membership charge of Â£5.We guarantee that the Junior Dragons will receive every penny of this, and more, back during the course of the season in the form of goodies.
We are particularly keen to hear from people who are CRB certificated, however dont worry if you are not as the WST will reimburse you for this service.
Lets make this a great year for the Junior Dragons, one that they will always remember.
