Posted:Mon 16 Nov 2020

The Wrexham Supporters Trust Board would like to thank all members who took the time to vote and take part in the process relating to the Extraordinary Ballot. There was a significant turnout for the ballot at 91.5%.

We are now in a position to confirm the result of the vote, which has been independently verified by Mi-Voice, the company assisting the Trust in the process. As can be seen in full detail below, members have voted FOR all three resolutions.

As such – subject to final agreement, league and FA confirmation, as well as Financial Conduct Authority approval – the RR McReynolds Company, LLC will take 100% control of Wrexham Football Club Limited from the WST.

Both parties will now proceed with finalising the details of the takeover, and we will update Wrexham supporters as soon as we can.

The Wrexham Supporters Trust Board would like to thank Mr Rob McElhenney and Mr Ryan Reynolds, and their advisors Inner Circle Sports and Walker Morris, for their professional and considered approach and for the time they have already put into the process.

As Wrexham supporters, we would like to wish them the very best of luck in charge of our Football Club and look forward to what the future brings.

We would also like to thank our advisors, Sheridans, Mackenzie Jones, BDO and Rob Parry, for their assistance throughout the process.

Finally, to WST members, we would like to thank you for all your support since we took control of the Football Club in 2011.

We will update supporters in due course as to the future plans for the Wrexham Supporters Trust.

The Board of the Wrexham Supporters Trust
