STATEMENT | Response to recent events

Wrexham AFC are aware of the protests and demonstrations occurring in the town and beyond.

In light of the ongoing pandemic, we urge all Wrexham supporters to continue to follow government guidelines.

Last night, a volunteer for the club posted a picture of Wrexham AFC players Akil Wright and Paul Rutherford celebrating after the win against Chester in 2017-18. The players were holding a well-known flag, depicting the badges of two other teams.

It was posted after we received an unprecedented number of new followers from supporters of these clubs. During the evening there were around 3,000 new followers on the Twitter account.

We accept the post was ill-timed given the alleged events in Manchester and have spoken to the volunteer in question. He was reminded of, and we would like to reiterate, the club’s values.

Wrexham AFC condemns all forms of racism, but we do not take a political stance as a football club, and we condemn violence of any kind.
