Please help Protect Racecourse Ground Wrexham!

Hi from Wrexham Fans!

We and "fans united" would love to have your help and support to protect our ground from any chance of future property development.

No one has got better memories of the Racecourse ground than Crystal Palace fans who secured your famous last minute victory at the Racecourse for the 1976 promotion under Terry Venables. It broke our hearts, but you put on a brilliant performance that night with Kenny Sansom's thrusting runs and long throws from left back.

Not everyone knows Wrexham's Racecourse ground is "The Oldest International Football Stadium In The World", still in use today. [Good one to remember for pub quiz night]

We need your valued support and help. The club has been sold to a parent company, who are acting as property developer and developing the car park land the club used to own as an asset. This needs to encroach close to the stadium with the result, the kop end terrace has had to be closed until the development has been completed and when we understand the Kop end should be rebuilt.

We have been assured a healthy chunk of the profits from the development will be paid back into Wrexham Football Club, rather than just retained by the property developer. We are hopeful, although aware the section 106 guarantee we were promised would be submitted to planning, never materialised and planning permission given irrespective. This has left some concerns and anxiety amongst some of the fans and this now just relies on trust.

For the future and to protect the interests of the fans, and avoid any chance the club land could ever be developed on, we are lobbying the Wrexham Borough Councillors to secure the Racecourse as an international ground and stadium, as a designated reserved matter within the Local Development Plan. LDP. It could then never be sold as development land or be built on for supermarkets or more flats and the like.

To do this we have a mission to secure 10,500 names on the petition, the current capacity of the Racecourse Ground. We will use this to lobby the Councillors at the LDP planning hearing in the autumn. The response in less than four weeks has been fantastic and we have secured 5,735 signatures from fans of more than 30 clubs across the UK and even as far as Grampus Eight in Tokyo!

Wrexham and Crystal Palace have had some entertaining games over the years and your support would be magnificent for us.

Thanks

Thanks from Wrexham fans!

Thanks everyone who has added their name to the petition.

It's up to 5,805 now and we continue on in our quest to reach our final target of 10,500 names - one name for every seat in the current reduced capacity of the Racecourse ground.

Blaze RIP
yes that was right, it was a 5,000-6,000 ish open terrace thats like its cousins in football has now sadly been closed. It was also the Kop end which had greater significance for the many fans who stood there over the years.

It is now closed until the student housing has been completed, we hope it will be rebuilt but rely on the trust of the property developer in football. The developer being the newly formed company that also owns 100% of the football club. We are promised they intend to rebuild another 5,000 seater stand and preserve its status for international football, though this depends on the economic climate and the sale and profit of the student houses on the land, the club used to own as an asset.

Time will tell if they ring true and we hope they do. Though due to so many other property developers in football having alterior motives, many fans have anxiety and their own suspicions. The club board have after one month, have still not made any public comment about the petition or given their support to it in any way.

We continue to focus our lobbying at the Wrexham Borough Council to protect the ground in the LDP.

Thanks Everyone!

Baldy - The crystal palace game at the Racecourse had us on our knees after 94 mins and it was an incredible game of attacking football from both sides. Your will to win was phenomenal. The mansfield game was the knife in the stomach. We remember the crystal palce fans doing a congo of sorts in the stags away end !

At least we recovered and went up as champions the next season, although that success does seem along time ago now.

I went to school with Chris Armstrong. I played centre midfield while he played in goal. Yep he was the school goalie, until after school someone realised he could play a bit upfront and he never looked back.

Thanks from Wrexham fans!

Wanted to say a BIG thanks to the CPFC bbs forum.

We reached 6000 names this morning and now well on our way to our final target of 10,500 - one name for every seat in the reduced capacity ground while the kop terrace has been closed for the student housing development.

Thanks to all you Palace fans who have supported us !
