Wrexham FC: sale of the club and new ownership imminent

Robert Bickerton has joined the Board of Directors as Chairman and Tony Allan has joined the Board as a Director, he will also take on responsibility for running the Club as Chief Executive.

Mr Bickerton has previously served on the Board of Directors at Macclesfield Town FC, in the roles of Finance Director and Chairman, and also on the Board of Directors of Shrewsbury Town FC as Manager Director.

Mr Allan, who began his administrative career with Notts County, has also served Wigan Athletic, Chester City and Port Vale as Secretary.

In a statement Wrexham also revealed the Racecourse Ground and their training ground will be sold at a later date.

There is no mention of how the sale will affect the Crusaders rugby league club, which ground-shares with Wrexham.

The club said: “Wrexham Village Ltd announces that it has agreed an option with Van Morton Investments Ltd to allow it to purchase Wrexham FC as soon as possible and at a later stage the stadium and training ground.

“Van Morton Investments is a recently formed company, the purpose of which is to attract and provide Wrexham FC with funding.

One thought on “Wrexham FC: sale of the club and new ownership imminent

  1. Sounds too fishy to me. with the sale of the racecourse and training ground at a later date? MMM that leaves it too vulnerable whilst Roberts & Moss have still got fingers in pies with the crusaders. time will tell i guess?
