THE COUNTDOWN is on for the day Wrexham fans can go to a ground to watch their team play.

The Reds head to Tamworth on Saturday July 31 for a traditional three o’clock kick-off - the first time Wrexham supporters will be allowed in a stadium since just under 3,500 watched a drab National League goal-less draw at home to Eastleigh on March 7.

There will be huge interest from all Reds fans for the Lamb Ground friendly and they can expect to take a lot more than the 100 who ventured to Staffordshire six years ago to see Gary Mills’ side play out a 0-0 draw against a Tamworth team managed by ex-Reds boss Andy Morrell.

A statement on the club website said: “Tickets are only available to purchase from Tamworth’s ticketing website” while writing in his exclusive weekly Leader column, club director Humphrey Ker said: “I know we’ll have lots of supporters heading to Staffordshire to watch that one.

“It’s been a while since the club’s fans have had the chance to go to a game and Tamworth can expect a sell-out for the game, I’m sure.”

It will give fans the opportunity to see new boss Phil Parkinson’s style of play and to get their first glimpses of new signings Shaun Brisley, Jake Hyde and Liam McAlinden in a Wrexham shirt.
