Many congratulations to Wrexham on their historic victory today. The team’s success is not only great for Wrexham, but is also more great news for Welsh football and for sport in Wales.

Andy Morrell has done a great job - leading the club through troubled times and turning them into winners. Through his and the players’ efforts, the FA Trophy is on its way to Wales for the very first time. Well done the Dragons - job done!

“Well done to Andy Morrell and the team. This is fantastic news for the club and their fans, who have faced lots of uncertainty over the club’s future in recent years.

Let’s hope that the team make it a double and win promotion back into the Football League by winning that Conference title.
