WREXHAM FC are set to enjoy home comforts next season as work at the Racecourse Ground comes to a close.

The new irrigation system has been pressure tested before being brought to life.

Sprinklers through the middle of the pitch and those on the outside are starting to work their magic, as the first shoots of new grass start to appear and give a green sheen to the soil.

With water now available to encourage growth, the hallowed turf should continue growing at a good rate.

Glyndwr University sports manager Anna Marie Brown said: “Good progress has been made in past weeks. Grass should start to appear on the surface in the coming days and work is well underway on the changing rooms and the medical and treatment facilities.

“The work will be completed in time for the beginning of the football season. There are major academic and sporting plans for the stadium going forward. This is just the beginning.”

The pitch has six weeks growing time and to date, all is going to plan in the second of six weeks’ work.

Some earlier planned friendly fixtures have been either rescheduled or relocated but currently, weather dependent, the expectation is for one pre-season friendly and then league fixtures as per the planned programme.
