Default Re: WFC Hall of Fame

We adopted a policy of inclusiveness from the start , recognising players , managers, other WAFC staff who had given outstanding service and achieved great things at the Club. We also had a rarely given Special Award for those who , whilst not employed by the Club , had contributed in a highly significant way. Two of these Special Awards were given to Carroll Clark in 2005 ( marking 40 years on the SA committee and 30 years 45 years Chairman ) and WST as a group in 2006 (for obvious reasons).
With several of us on the HoF sub-committee due for retirement , it was agreed to hand the Hall of Fame over to the Wrexham Supporters Federation. Sadly , it was allowed to lapse but I understand plans are in hand to revive the Awards shortly. I wish them well.
Thankyou for the explanation.
