WREXHAM AFC hosted their annual open day with fans flocking to get a glimpse behind the curtain of the club.

The Red Dragons kickstart their campaign this weekend at The Racecourse against Barrow on Saturday.

Before that though, supporters got the chance to watch an open training session yesterday with the first team squad and manager Bryan Hughes.

This was followed by a Question and Answer session in the Centenary Club with a panel headed by Bryan Hughes, along with assistant manager Brian Flynn and first team coach Carl Darlington.

Peter Jones, chairman of the Wrexham Supporters Trust and organiser of the open day, spoke about why he believes it’s important to give the fans this experience.

He said: “It’s great to be able to give the fans, who give their unwavering support, the chance to come and see the players, especially the new players, and engage with the players and the manager before the season starts and get to know them really.

“At the same time, it’s great for the players to get to see the fans before the season starts and see just how dedicated they are and how passionate they are, and the manager will get to speak to them in the Q&A after.

“The fans love it, they want to meet the guys, take pictures, get autographs, show them support. It allows that relationship to begin before a ball is even kicked, and hopefully that support will continue throughout the entirety of the season.”
