SHAUN HARVEY says redeveloping the Kop remains his "major focus" off the pitch at The Racecourse.

Completing deals for new signings is top of the agenda for Harvey, the Strategic Advisor to the board, to give Wrexham's promotion challenge a boost.

But improving facilities at the iconic north Wales stadium were also a key part of Hollywood stars Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds' mission statement when they completed their high profile of the club last February.

Work has been on-going around the ground and former EFL chief executive Harvey says the club is committed to redeveloping the Kop stand which has not been in use for years, with supporters voting to introduce safe standing after responding to a survey.

"We had the big banner across the Kop because it is embarrassing looking at it as it is," said Harvey.

"The wind took care of the banner so it is down at this moment in time but the target between now and the end of the season is to get a really clear direction with how we are going to develop the stadium so we can hopefully host international games in the future but more importantly, it can host bigger crowds watching Wrexham.

"That has to be the over-arching aim.

"We can replace toilet pans and upgrade kiosks but the quantum leap to take us forward is getting the Kop back in use.

"The mission statement is clear; to improve the facilities at The Racecourse and there is only one way to be able to make that significant difference so that is my major focus off the pitch between now and the end of the season. We need to make sure that the club is in a position to be sustainable and to be able to generate the revenue needed to provide the manager with the support that he needs to get the job done on the pitch.

"The Racecourse with fans in is a great sight, the atmosphere is brilliant. We want to continue to improve the facilities and we need to increase revenue on a matchday because that all helps support the club going forward.

"There has to be a balance, the club needs to generate as much revenue as it can do with its own operations and never just be reliant on Rob and Ryan because we want to build a sustainable club for the long term, not one that is just dependant upon their involvement."
