LUKE YOUNG is delighted that Wrexham AFC Women can use Colliers Park as their base for the 2019-20 season.

The Football Association of Wales has redeveloped the Gresford side at a cost in excess of £4 million, turning it into an elite training facility.

A three-year agreement has been made between Wrexham and the FAW to allow the club's Centre of Excellence to return to the centre.

Wrexham AFC women, part of the Racecourse Community Foundation, will also train and play their home fixtures at Colliers Park, and head coach Young is pleased to have a place the team can call home.

"It has always been the plan to go to Colliers Park and they are happy to have us there," said Wynne.

"The RCF is going to moving a lot of their own stuff there and as the women's team trained at Morgan Llwyd but played our games at Penycae last season, it is good that we are going to be based at one place.

"We will train on the 3G and play our games on the grass."

Wrexham returned for pre-season training on Monday and there was a healthy turnout of players ahead of the Reds' first friendly away at Airbus on Sunday.

"We had our first training session at Colliers Park ahead of our first pre-season game at Airbus," said Wynne.

"We had 19 players at training and we have got a few more that want to come next week so we have got good numbers.

"A couple who were at training can't play on Sunday but we are going to have about 16 or 17 players so we will give them all a game and see what's what."

Wrexham, who reformed last year, enjoyed a successful first season in the North Wales Women's League.

Wynne's side were runners-up in Division Two and the Supplementary Cup, and won the League Cup.

The club is now waiting to see if they will be promoted to the first division after finishing runners-up to Bethesda.

"We have had the AGM but they said that there has been an appeal from a Division One team and an appeal from a Division Two team as well over the league's decisions," said Wynne.

"That has now gone to the FAW so the league said they are waiting on a decision from them.

"As soon as that is done, they will decide on who is in which league."

With new teams coming into the league and having to start in Division Two, Wynne would expect Wrexham to go up a level.

"With four new teams coming in, you would assume that at least two teams are going to get promoted," said Wynne.

"We finished second so you'd think we will get promoted but we are just waiting on that."

The Wrexham men's team continue to train at The Nine Acre site in the town ahead of a 12th season in non-league.

Although the Reds have announced their own plans to develop a training base at the former Groves High School, manager Bryan Hughes has admitted he is hopeful that the first team can also use Colliers Park in the future.
