A FORMER Wrexham player is doing his bit to help boost the size of Reds' boss Bryan Hughes' playing budget.

Fans' favourite Mark Creighton, who played for The Racecourse outfit from 2011 to 2013 until injury forced him to call time on his career, is now employed by Peninsula UK.

The company, who specialise in employment law and health and safety, are holding a seminar for businesses in the North Wales area at The Racecourse tomorrow, starting at 4pm.

It takes places before Wrexham host Stoke City in their latest pre-season friendly and those attending can watch the game following a networking buffet.

Creighton, nicknamed the Beast, said: "I started working for Peninsula after learning of their services through my own business. I recognise first-hand how difficult it can be in relation to understanding employment law and the challenges that it brings employing staff.

"We are an outsourced HR, employment law and health and safety consultancy for small to medium sized enterprises throughout the UK.

"We write bespoke documentation, offer 24/7 professional advice, legal representation and optional insurance cover to enable businesses to remain compliant.

"If you own a business, we come in and talk about the ethos and culture within the business, and write bespoke documentation to reflect that.

"We will then be your professional advice for anything employment law related as most companies fall foul of correct lawful procedures being followed."

He added: "We are holding the two hour seminar for businesses owners or directors.

"They will get up to date relevant information about current law and future law changes, free food and all watch the game together but while it is on, we will speak about the more bespoke challenges that owners face on a day to day basis.

"Staff can be the hardest part of the business to manage but are often the heartbeat of the company, so it is important that they are looked after correctly and lawfully.

"Any Wrexham fan that owns a business or knows somebody who owns a business and employ staff, need our services."

Creighton said the seminar, and what develops after the event, will benefit Wrexham and boost Hughes' playing budget for the 2019-20 season.

"Any businesses that become a Peninsula client, it is going to benefit Wrexham.

"The playing budget will receive a percentage of that contract value which will be a significant figure.

"I am in a privileged position to work for a company helping a club close to my heart. Wrexham's is the first result I look for on a Saturday.

"If we can put some money into the playing budget, that means a stronger squad, which will hopefully lead to success.

"Even after the event, anyone who becomes a Peninsula client or is referred to me from the club, I will continue to pay that fee to the playing budget.

"It doesn't end after the event, it is an ongoing thing that we want to do for the club."
