WORK to demolish the historic Kop area of the Racecourse is 'continuing rapidly', according to Wrexham AFC officials.

The project was given the green light by Wrexham Council's planning committee in November 2022.

The re-development is aiming to add a further 5,500 seats to the north Wales ground and hopefully bring international football back to the area in the near future too.

Work began on demolishing the old Kop in December 2022.
