Wrexham AFC would like to thank all supporters who bid in our match-worn third shirt auction, run in conjunction with our official partners Town & Country.
We are pleased to confirm all 14 match-worn shirts were sold in the auction, helping to raise £2,600 – which will be donated to Shelter’s #NoHomeKit campaign.
All shirts will be posted out following confirmation of payment, with winning bids both locally and as far as the United States.
The auction was arranged as part of Shelter’s #NoHomeKit campaign, which saw teams across the country wear their away shirts on Boxing Day to raise awareness of, and funds to help combat, homelessness.
After our Boxing Day fixture was postponed due to COVID-19, and the debut of our new white third shirts was delayed, we instead opted to wear the shirts for our Buildbase FA Trophy fourth round fixture with Folkestone Invicta.
The shirts of all 14 players who featured in that game were available for auction, with a late bid meaning club captain Ben Tozer’s proved to be the most valuable – by a single pound from Jordan Davies.
Wrexham AFC CEO Fleur Robinson said: “I would like to thank all supporters who bid in the auction, and our official partners Town and Country for their work in arranging it.
“We were sadly unable to partake in Shelter’s #NoHomeKit campaign on Boxing Day, so it is great that we have managed to now play our part and raise money and awareness for a great cause.
“Congratulations to all the winning bidders.”
Town & Country’s Neil McDonald added: “ It was a real pleasure to work with Wrexham AFC to raise money for such a worthy cause.
"Thank you also to all the Wrexham supporters who took part whether they won a shirt or not, their participation made for a great charity auction and a fantastic advert for the club and its partners.”
