The latest winners of the Director for a Day were WST members Iestyn Davies from Marchwiel and Mike Thomas from Wrexham who were invited to join WST hosts Geoff Scott and Dave Jones in the Boardroom for the visit of Luton Town. Iestyn and Mike, both MRS season ticket holders enjoyed the experience of watching the game from the Directors Box and the result.
Iestyn said “It was a very pleasant surprise to get a call inviting me to be a 'Director for a Day.' I have supported the Reds since the late 1960s and despite only missing a few games at the Cae Ras over the past 25 years I had little insight of what went on behind the scenes on a match day. It was the first time that I had been in the Directors' Box - and the first time I had worn a jacket and tie to a game!
Mike said “it was a great experience, not only because Wrexham played well and won but it was also very enjoyable to have pre and post match chats with Trust's Directors, Club Board Directors, Sponsors as well as previous heroes, Dixie McNeil and Mickey Thomas. Everyone we met were most friendly and welcoming. All future winners are sure to have a super time”
Iestyn and Mike both commented on how much passion there was for the club and how hard people worked behind the scenes to see it survive and flourish and that the solid foundations that have been laid by WST represented the way forward for the club.
