WREXHAM want the 2019/20 National League play-offs to be staged according to the latest communication by the Supporters Trust.

Clubs in the National League were asked to give guidance on whether an extension should be granted to the season in order to conclude the play-offs.

Wrexham Supporters Trust said: "On behalf of Wrexham AFC, our guidance to the league was that they should continue to hold the play-offs if these can be completed before the start of the next regular season and not delay its start.

"It was our assessment that it was only fair to those clubs involved in the play-offs that they should be given the opportunity, if it wasn’t to impact on next season and impact WAFC and other clubs."

Eight other clubs agreed with Wrexham, while three chose not to have their say, meaning that 12 wanted to cancel the play-offs.

The WST added: "The National League board of directors have decided to pursue the option of postponing the play-offs and are seeking an extension from the relevant football authorities at this point in time."

Wrexham also revealed that the first repayment of the Government's Job Retention Scheme (furlough) has been received, £141,232.32 arriving at The Racecourse to cover wages paid in April and part of March.

The WST said: "This covers wages for full-time employees, part-time staff, matchday staff and part-time youth department coaches.

"Club directors have already started work on the claim for May ready to be submitted later this month. The Job Retention Scheme was extended by the Government on Tuesday and we await further details about this."

Reds boss Dean Keates has also been doing his bit to help boost the club's coffers by uncovering a useful funding stream.

Keates found that Pitch Preparation Funding Grants are available from the Football Foundation and Wrexham have secured £1,500 to repair the damage to The Racecourse turf caused by the long lay-off.

The WST added: "This is especially welcome as the cost of re-seeding alone will be around £1,200."

And the Supporters Trust are also currently engaged in an exercise to improve operations.

The WST confirmed: "A working party consisting of board members and lay members has been set up to examine our constitution and policies with a view to increasing transparency and accountability in the organisation.

"It is expected that a raft of changes will be brought forward for members approval in the coming months.

"As part of this process we are opening out the discussion for members feedback prior to finalising the proposals. Group members are Paul Cox, Phil Davies, Lindsay Jones and Gavin Jones. All feedback to – secretary@wst.org.uk"
