We are proud to be able to inform everyone that Wrexham AFC have applied for a Category 4 licence under the Elite Player Performance Plan (‘EPPP’) with a view to the 2023/24 season being one of transition, with the intention to apply for Category 3 status from 2024/25.
Wrexham boasts a proud history of developing and nurturing some of North Wales’ finest footballing talent – producing European champions, World Cup internationals and icons of the game – but have not had the resources to continue this during the majority of our 15-year absence from the Football League.
An immediate priority following our return to EFL League Two, was to reform the Academy within the EPPP structure and we are now looking to recruit for roles within the Academy (click on the title to see the full job description.
On the launch of the Wrexham AFC Academy, Executive Director Humphrey Ker said: “Ever since the takeover of the Football Club, Rob and Ryan have been clear in their ambition to build a sustainable model for success, as well as reinforcing the legacies and traditions of Wrexham AFC.
“As a Club, we’ve missed out on the opportunity to sign lots of local talent, including the likes of Neco Williams, Harry Wilson and Tom Lawrence, as we’ve not had the infrastructure to support their development going forward.
“This will now change. We have ambitious and exciting plans to build an infrastructure capable of nurturing North Wales’ finest talents.”
