At the heart of our community, Wrexham Association Football Club represents so much to so many people, of all ages, with a significant footballing and social history, spanning over 155 years. However, it is those who have followed the Club through many of those years that truly have made it the iconic symbol of all our hopes and dreams.
The Racecourse has become the gathering place of the diverse communities of not just Wrexham town itself, but much of North & Mid Wales, the Marches and beyond, becoming one community, one extended family of shared memories, experiences and ambitions.
As with any family, the passage of time takes its toll, we lose those loved ones who have, and continue, to mean so much to us.
Every year, Wrexham AFC intends to dedicate one special match when we can all join together in respecting the memories of those loved ones who have passed away over the last year and share in celebrating their lives.
This season, the Vanarama National League home match against Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday, 1st February 2020 will be dedicated to our now absent, but never forgotten family and friends.
There will be a minute’s commemorative silence at the beginning of the match, and the names of those departed will be displayed on the electronic scoreboard and also in the match day programme - in a special commemorative section.
If you wish for your loved one or friend to be included, could you please send their name and details to [email protected] before Friday, 24th January 2020.
If you want to include a short anecdote about them, details the important connection the deceased had with the Club or a photograph, please do so. However, depending on how many and how much content we receive, we may not be able to add it all to the programme, but we will do our best.
Our memories will always ensure their place as a member of the Wrexham AFC family.
