racecourse arial 1You are invited  to a special general meeting of the Wrexham Football Supporters’ Society Limited (Wrexham Supporters Trust) to be held at The Catrin Finch Centre, Glyndwr University, Off Crispin Lane, Mold Road, Wrexham on Tuesday 29th March 2016 starting at 7:30pm.

The purpose of the meeting is to consider a proposal by the WST Board to enter into a 99-year lease with Glyndwr University for the Racecourse Ground -the home of Wrexham Football Club since 1864.

This is a hugely significant decision and a landmark in the proud history of our Club. After much consideration and lengthy negotiations, the Trust Board recommend that members ratify their proposal to enter into the lease with the University. Whilst we do not underestimate the challenges ahead, the Board are unanimous in the view that this represents the best and most sustainable opportunity to secure the Club’s tenure at our historic stadium for the long term.

The agenda for the meeting is as follows:

2. Presentation by the Board in support of the resolution to enter into a 99 year lease for the Racecourse Ground.
3. Questions from the Floor
4. Voting on the Resolution
