It’s certainly been an interesting journey so far with the club takeover making headlines worldwide.

The momentum generated around the takeover has given a huge lift to the town.

As a nod to the new owners hugely talented local chainsaw artist Simon O’Rourke has produced something quite special and hopes to have some fun with it whilst raising money for 2 local charities.

This coming Friday and Saturday (22nd and 23rd October) a Deadpool carving will be touring around many locations in Wrexham (see below for details) and people are being encouraged to take selfies with the artwork and post with the #tag #Wrexhamdeadpooltour- if you snap and uploads 3 selfies across 3 sites there is a chance that you could win a prize.

After the tour, the carving will be raffled off with the proceeds split between Nightingale House Hospice and Teams 4U.
