SPENCER HARRIS insists a potential takeover of Wrexham Football Club is still a long way off but says it’s up to the fans to decide.

The club has been approached by two “extremely well-known individuals of high net worth” who are looking to purchase the entire shared capital of Wrexham AFC Limited.

As well as the purchase of Wrexham AFC Limited for a nominal sum, they also intend to immediately invest £2 million into the club.

A Special General Meeting of members has been called by the Wrexham Supporters Trust Board, to be held on Tuesday September 22 from 7pm.

The investors wish for their identities to remain anonymous until WST members have authorised the board to proceed with discussions, and Harris says a possible takeover is still in its early stages.

“They approached us with an interest in the football club,” said Harris (pictured).

“Now we need to secure permission from the supporters to take those discussions into more detailed discussions, and bring back something that we put in front of supporters to make a decision.

“That is the purpose of the first SGM and then we will see where it goes.

“It is still early stages and there are many things that need to happen for this to come to fruition, if this is what supporters want.”

When asked whether he feels this is the right direction for the club, Harris added: “What I say is not important.

“It is up to the supporters, it is their club. Trust members are the owners of the club and the direction that they want to take the club is what is important.

“What we are here to do is to serve the needs and wishes of the strategic direction that they set for us.

“We manage the club on a day-to-day basis and do our best on their behalf but ultimately this is a decision and a matter for supporters.”

Wrexham are preparing for a 13th season in non-league under Dean Keates who has revamped the squad over the summer.

Harris insists takeover talk will not be a distraction and that the focus remains on trying to clinch a return to the Football League.

“We will carry on focussing on getting things right on the pitch,” added Harris.

“The main focus is preparing for the new season and making sure that we are ready to go on October 3 because we want to do really well in the league this year.

“Nothing will take our eye off the ball there.

“Dean has done a remarkable job in the summer, bringing in some fantastic players, and we very much hope that we are set for a really good season.”
