The Day's Proceedings...

IMG 20140111 135457Pauline Harding and her brother-in -law, Alan Holmes were met by Huw Davies (WST Board), their host for the day in the Wrexham AFC Board Room at 1:30pm before the home match with FC Halifax Town.

They were all greeted by Spencer Harris (WAFC Board) and took refreshments immediately on entry with assistance from Mr Matthew Bircham and other match day staff

A main meal was provided and the guest directors and their host where accompanied by Geoffrey and Gillian Williams who had travelled from Southport.

We all had a brief chat about football matters while eating a very pleasant main meal

Dixie McNeil (WAFC Club President) then came for a chat and was introduced to all by Huw Davies

A photograph of Alan and Pauline with Dixie was then taken.

After this we rather fearfully went to watch 10 man Wrexham do their best in the 2nd half and were surprised by the great defensive effort that thwarted the opposition and we came away with a point and a clean sheet.

After some conversations in the Board room the two guest directors went on to visit the Bamford suite along with their host to see The Man of the Match presentation by Nick Hencher which was given to Steve Tomassen.

Pauline and Alan met many players including Steve Wright, Andy Morrell, Brett Ormerod and others.

Pauline had quite a number of photographs taken with current and former Wrexham Players.

A great day was enjoyed by all.

Within the next hour after chatting Pauline and Alan made their way out, and off home after thoroughly enjoying being directors for the Day.
