A pub in Wrexham has revealed its own version of the new Kop stand at the Racecourse as a thank you to the football club. 

Over the weekend, the Golden Lion in Coedpoeth revealed a stunning piece of artwork on their site, paying tribute to Wrexham AFC. 

They were joined by the Mayor of Wrexham, Andy Williams as well as local musicians as the Kop piece was unveiled. 

The idea originated last year, after an American couple (Sonny and Becki) visiting Wrexham made a trip to the pub and 'fell in love' with it and the community spirit. 

After keeping in touch with pub owners Lee and Sian Jones, the American pair returned to Wrexham for the last game of the season to watch it at the Golden Lion.

With the current success of the Reds, Lee felt it was only right to pay tribute in some way. 

He said: "This is when it hit us how big Wrexham AFC had become, we just felt overwhelmed by what Sonny and Becki had done to get themselves on a plane to visit our pub to celebrate Wrexham's success.

"I then thought I would love to do something here at the pub as a thank you to Wrexham AFC for what they were doing for the town as a whole.

"Seeing people smile, cheer and even a few tears of joy. It’s great to say we live in Wrexham right now."

Lee wanted to make sure that his pub stood out and acquired the help of Ollie and Harvey Roberts from O & H Metalwork, as well as local friend Ian Evans. 

Between them, they recreated the design proposals for the new Kop stand, set to be built ready for next season.

Lee added: "We wanted to do something different and after coming across the artist's impression of the new Kop at the racecourse, straight away I thought we could copy that onto our shack building. 

"To now see this thought become a reality is mind-blowing and I can’t thank them enough for their help. We even paid tribute to the local club Coedpoeth United.

"The reaction we have had from this is overwhelming, myself and Sian have had so many messages since yesterday.

"With this now complete, it’s nice that people can come and visit and have a picture while they wait for the real Kop to be built."
