The Board of the Wrexham Supporters Trust are pleased to announce that they have invited SKY Sports commentator and lifelong Wrexham fan, Bryn Law, to be our President, following in the footsteps of Wrexham Legend, and now Club President, Arfon Griffiths.
Brought up in Ruabon, and a former pupil of Ruabon Grammar School, Bryn has been a member of the Trust since its inception in 2004, and is often seen at Wrexham games up and down the country despite his hectic schedule as commentator and interviewer on SKY Sports.
Bryn takes an active interest in Wrexham Football Clubs affairs, both on and off the field, and will never be forgotten for his reporting on the Boston game at the last match of the 2006/07 season which saw Wrexham needing a win to stay up.
He lost all his professionalism in reporting on the game, and at one stage looked almost physically sick when announcing Boston's opening goal, before going on to have a grin as wide as the Vale of Llangollen when Wrexham went level, then 2-1 and finally 3-1 up to cap one of his most exhaustive days in broadcasting!
Of his acceptance of being made President of the Supporters Trust, Bryn said:
Im honoured and delighted to accept this role as President of the Wrexham Supporters Trust. Ive been a fan of the club for over 30 years and a Trust member since its inception. I believe in the aims and objectives of the Supporters Trust movement, not only at our club but all those where increasing numbers of supporters are beginning to realise that safeguarding the long term future of the teams we follow may require a little more than pushing through the turnstile on a Saturday afternoon.
Although I am primarily a football fan, in my professional capacity, Ive had nearly twenty years experience of working with football clubs- players, managers, Chairmen and Chief Executives. As a result, I believe I
have a good understanding of just how difficult it is to run a club along sensible, stable financial lines. In that time, I have also seen every one of the clubs that I deal with go into administration and that suggests strongly that there has to be a better way, a different way, of ensuring the long-term health of the clubs we love.
Wrexham supporters have suffered more than most in the last five years. One battle was won, due in a large part to the energy and passion of a group of fans who refused to accept the fate others had planned for their club, there are still other issues to resolve. That resolution will best be brought about by dialogue between the two groups with the greatest interest in the resurgence of a club with a proud history, those who own it and those who support it.
Wrexham Is The Name!
Welcome aboard Bryn!
