Plaid councillors donate to Wrexham fans' appeal


Plaid Cymru's group of councillors in Wrecsam have handed over a £400 donation to the Wrexham Supporters' Trust to boost funds to save the football club.

The group of four councillors handed over the cheque during a vist to the Wrexham Supporters' Trust stall on the National Eisteddfod field at Lower Berse Farm today.

Group leader Marc Jones said:
"The Trust needs all the support it can get at the moment to complete this historic deal. This is our group's small contribution to the cause and we hope it will bear dividends in the coming days and weeks.

"We need stability at the club and the Trust, along with other partners, can deliver that stability. Fans have rallied to raise thousands in the past few days to meet players' wages and other bills - a fantastic gesture. But we need to see a long-term solution to the problem that will allow Dean Saunders, his staff and his players to focus on the coming season on the pitch rather than worrying about who is paying the bills."

Spencer Harris, who received the cheque on behalf of the Supporters' Trust, said:
"This is a great gesture from the Plaid Cymru group, who have always been supportive of our efforts and have worked behind the scenes. Councillors have a crucial role to play in safeguarding the future of the club and The Racecourse, so this is another positive step in the right direction."

UPDATE: WST chair and Sky Sports commentator Bryn Law has posted the following:
Well done to all who have been raising incredible sums of money to the Trust in the fight to keep Wrexham going, including the Plaid Cymru councillors who made a generous donation today, diolch fawr iawn. Plaid have been extremely proactive in this process. Onwards and upwards!
