“I would like to pay special thanks to Wrexham councils events team who have worked tirelessly since the Boreham wood victory with the club and police to put this together in such a short time. I would also like to thank Wrexham councils streetscene team for clearing up after the big celebration and to the police and stewards for keeping everyone safe.
