PETER MOORE praised the work of Wrexham Supporters Trust and says it is "phenomenal" how much love has been shown for the club by volunteers over the last nine years.

The Racecourse outfit has been in fan-ownership since 2011 but Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney are close to completing their takeover.

Former Liverpool CEO Moore will work as an advisor when the duo take control and he believes the Trust deserve a lot of credit for stabilising the club.

"Thanks to the Wrexham Supporters Trust what they have been through in the last nine years since it was formed," said Moore.

"It is phenomenal that the club has people who love the club so much that they are able to band together and get the club through so many difficult times.

"Primarily volunteers, through their love for the football club and love for the town, you can only tip your hat to those people and hopefully they will continue to be involved like they currently are."

Moore won't be drawn on when he believes the takeover will go through but says Wrexham has a bright future when Reynolds and McElhenny become "wonderful" owners.

"You don't want to get ahead of yourself and be presumptuous," said Moore.

"The WST members have voted unanimously on this and you are just dotting the i's and crossing the t's at this point.

"My message would be thank you to everybody that has got the football club to this point, to where people take an interest from afar in not only supporting the football club but supporting the town and community.

"I don't like to use the word owners but I think Rob and Ryan are going to be wonderful stewards of the football club that are going to focus on the club but with a direct result of building community pride."
