"This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning."
Today's upbeat statement from Wrexham FC owners suggests that, after a worryingly long period of due diligence by the WST's appointed accountants, there may be light at the end of the tunnel.
"After further discussions at the Racecourse, the Directors have issued the following:
"Geoff Moss and Jon Harris today met with Rob Parry, Gavin Jones and Richard Green, of the Wrexham Supporters Trust, to discuss the purchase of the Football Club, The Racecourse Ground and Colliers Park.
"The meeting was really positive and considerable progress was made, with a move ever closer to the conclusion of the deal."
It was very good to meet new WST chief exec Richard Green last night at the Lager Club, where the WST board meetings clash with Plaid Wrecsam meetings on a regular basis. We can only look forward to the WST writing the next chapter in the colourful history of our club.
