Wrexham AFC chairmen's anniversary message

An open letter to supporters from Rob and Ryan, one year on from their takeover

9 February 2022

To the supporters, staff, players, friends, and family of Wrexham AFC.

It is difficult to believe that it is a year ago today, we became the owners of the Club and pledged to be good custodians.

The year has gone in the blink of an eye, we have learned so much and more importantly feel like we are fully integrated into everything Wrexham.

There can be no doubt that the highlight of the year was our visit in October. The reception, experience and general feel of warmth moved both of us beyond anything we could have possibly imagined and made us even more determined to be successful.

We, ably supported by those who work for the Club, have already achieved so much but we know there is much more that needs doing if we are to meet our goal of growing the team, securing a return to the EFL in front of increased attendances at an improved stadium while making a positive different to the wider community in Wrexham.

It would be easy to only refer to those actions that were well received but we also recognize that not everything has gone off, without an issue or two. We are not going to dwell on either, other than to repeat our commitment to do everything, in our capability and control, to meet our stated goal.

We have provided the Manager with the playing resources to give ourselves the best chance of gaining promotion. We can now only sit back like everyone else and support the team in each game, where the only 90 minutes each week that actually makes the difference, takes place.

Off the field, we recognise that redeveloping the Kop is the only way to significantly move the dial in terms of increasing the capacity of the Racecourse Ground. We can’t do that on our own and a significant announcement in this regard will be made at Noon today.

It feels like the community are close to the Club and not only those who come through the turnstiles but those who are supportive from a distance. We wanted our time at the Club to be defined by the benefit we could create for the community and are proud of the progress to date, although we are only just getting started.

We still have some of the actions we committed to in the Mission Statement to fully deliver against and will be in a better place to review our own performance at the end of the season, which we will do in the transparent way we promised.

In closing, you have all been great for us and we aim to be great for you too.

Rob & Ryan
