STATEMENT | Wrexham AFC Issue Statement Regarding Current League Position

Macclesfield Town
Posted:Sun 01 Dec 2019

The Wrexham Supporters Trust, Football Club Board, Manager and Players of Wrexham AFC want to apologise to you regarding the position we currently occupy in the National League.

Despite upping the playing budget going into the season by over 20% versus the prior season, it hasn’t worked and the club currently sits in its lowest ever league position.

As lifelong fans of the club ourselves who follow the team up and down the country, we fully understand the frustration, embarrassment and upset this is causing everyone and that we need to urgently address the situation.

The Board and Dean Keates met today and talked through the steps necessary to turn this situation around and discussed the investment needed in further additions to the squad we will need to make in January.

We have to wait until January, because as a Welsh Club playing in the English National League we are bound by the international transfer window (this does not apply to the England based National League clubs), and these rules mean we cannot make any permanent signings until the transfer window is open in January. As a matter of urgency, we plan to bring in loan additions who can help us in the short term.

We fully understand the anger from fans and respect the right to make feelings known. Given the current circumstances, your club and team need you more than ever on a matchday to give us the best chance of pulling clear of this situation and that’s something everyone connected to Wrexham Football Club wants and something we all can rally around.

Ultimately, we understand that we are accountable for everything that happens at the football club, the good along with the bad but would urge everyone to pull together in the same direction until this situation is addressed.

Your fantastic support is always appreciated.
