CLUB NEWS | Work On The Hays Travel Stand Underway

Wrexham AFC have started essential work on the flooring areas in the Hays Travel Stand this week.   

Patrons of the stand had noticed that the concourse flooring and vomitory steps had become slippy, particually during the winter months. 

After listening to feedback given by supporters the clubs directors made these works a priority to improve the match day experience at the Racecourse. 

The work required to rectify this issue will take around two weeks to complete meaning it needed to be carried out during the off-season. 

This work is being carried out after contractors ALS completed resurfacing work on the pitch last week which is now being expertly tendered to by groundsman Paul Chaloner. 

Phil Salmon, the club director who is responsible for the Racecourse Stadium explained: "It's quite an open sided stand and we do get a lot of inclement weather in here which carries in to the floor. 

"It was a highly polished floor beforehand and this work should eliminate the chance of a slip happening."

With supporter safety paramount for Phil, he went on to say: "We're trying to eliminate any chance of supporters slipping. We have had the floor shot blasted for two solid days, there will be a liner put over it and next the contractors will coat it with an anti-slip paint."

Phil wanted to thank club sponsors WB Environmental for their assistance saying: "We have had some great help from WB Environmental who have provided us skips to dispose of the waste materials. They have been very good with the club helping with other projects like at the training ground."
