A WREXHAM man is aiming to garner support for a mural celebrating the city's footballing heritage.

Stuart Wojdyta has started a petition following the unveiling of the Gary Speed mural in Cardiff, which was met with a great reception, which inspired him to campaign for something similar in Wrexham.

Staurt said: “People often talk about the decline of Wrexham town / city centre. So as a community it is up to each of us to come together and look at ways of enhancing our surroundings.

“There are many talented people in this town, and we should bring them together to create art. A mural to celebrate our football heritage and the Wales team qualifying for the World Cup in Qatar for the first time since 1958, we should bring the arts together and celebrate.”


Football in Wales has never been more exciting; as the nation secured their first World Cup appearance in over 64 years and of course, Wrexham’s footballing exploits is one which has gained nationwide attention following the takeover of Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, adding a real buzz to the town – so it’s easy to see why there is much support for the idea.

One supporter said: “Absolutely! I think it’s a great idea for our Wrexham Association Football Club!!”
