Wrexham get new owners

Football News 24/7

Next Tuesday is a landmark day as it was announced this week that that is the day Wrexham Supporters' Trust (WST), will take over the day-to-day running of the club.

Earlier, one of the club's owners Geoff Moss threatened to talk to a rival unless he received a suitable deposit.

A joint statement said a "suitable financial agreement has been reached".

"The directors of Wrexham FC are delighted to annnounce that agreement has been reached with WST today to purchase the football club," said the statement from the club. During this period Wrexham Supporters Trust will run the football club under a licence agreement pending approval by the football authorities."

Spencer Harris, one of the WST's directors, said the news was "fantastic" for fans, Wrexham and supporters in general. "We're taking over the club as a going concern, breaking new ground in Wales and looking forward to a bright future."

The deal will need to be approved by the Welsh FA and the Blue Square Premier League, but brings to an end an uncertain time for the club. At one time there was even concern about the future of the club in its current location with various plans being bandied about.

The club recently saw manager Dean Saunders leave for Darlington, and the general concensus seems to be that Andy Morrell, who is in temporary charge should take over the hot seat.
