WREXHAM Football Club comes first in Liam Davies’ eyes.

The 21-year-old, from Chirk, was due to book a holiday in Benidorm.

But when Wrexham announced they were heading to Portugal for a training camp for the third year in a row, previous plans were scrapped as friends, all fellow Reds fans, persuaded Liam to book a break on the Algarve instead - not that he needed much convincing!

The Leader:

Liam Davies, Andrew Griffiths and Tristan Richard

“I came to Portugal with Wrexham last year and I booked the trip for us all this time,” said Liam.

“It is always on me! They persuaded me away at Hartlepool last season to come.

“I ended up cancelling another holiday in Benidorm to book this and come to Portugal instead.

The Leader:

Deiniol, Richard and Ioan Williams

“I would rather come here and watch Wrexham with this lot to be honest.

“It was at a different time of the year but with the way my holidays work, I could either go on one or the other and I would rather come here for the week.

The Leader:

Adam, Sarah and Daniel Williams

“I loved it last year. The stadium was brilliant. It will be a harder test this year but great opponents in Portimonense and a different venue again, so it will be interesting to see how we get on.”

Andrew Griffiths, from Wrexham, is also in the party of friends who travelled to Portugal to back Bryan Hughes’ side.

The Leader:

Harriet and Stuart Lewis

He jumped at the chance to be a part of the trip

“We all did it last year, the whole group of us,” said Andrew. “That was my first time out here with Wrexham.

“Twelve of us booked together this time and we know everybody else. We do all the away games, we go everywhere.

The Leader:

Mark Macdougall

“It is looking really good for next season and we are happy; I think we will score more goals this season.

“I have supported Wrexham since I was little.

“My dad used to take me, I took my son and these are all my son’s mates with me over here.”

The Leader:

Fans' towels

Tristan Richard, 24, from Brynteg, loves the idea of combining a holiday with watching his beloved Wrexham.

“I have been here for the last two years now and it is a good laugh with the lads,” said Tristan.

“Football, and on holiday, what more do you want?

“It is nice to go to somewhere new for the game but it will be a tough game.”
