Default Re: Steve Jones no longer at the club.

Right decision, but hopefully the news was conveyed with the empathy the club hierarchy seems to lack at times.

A phasing out of the old guard - sounds about right. Sounds like across the clubs operations there’s been a rolling “thank you, we’ll take it from here” and I’m not sure if that’s a good or a bad thing.

Why does everyone bum Bryn law on here ? All he talks about is Leeds. His commentary is so big standard and is only loitering around wrexham now to make a bit of extra cash when Leeds aren't playing or there is an international break.

I agree with what you say. I have had to dismiss quite a few employees over the years and its neverca nice thing to do .
Steve was a good servant toothed club but he had his day and it was obvious that the announcing side of the match together with the half time experience needed great improvement.
It's difficult to satisfy a very mixed audience but Steve didn't make it a great experience and as many said we couldn't understand him and his choice of music etc was uninspiring.
Years ago we used to have toe tapping music that all ages enjoyed like Herp Albert and the Tijuana brase mixed with the Beatles etc
I am getting old now so I expect the modern format of presenting may not be for me but so many away clubs presenters were way more professional and interesting than Steve was .
Good luck Steve and please reconsider coming to future games at least you deserve a free season ticket for a few seasons.

Sad that someone who has a clear love for the club no longer has the role and I wish him well.
I think the club is trying to head in a more professional direction and maybe making wedding anniversary announcements in the middle of play isn’t the best way to sell yourself as professional?
The announcements in the recent Wales game were far clearer and easier to hear (though I was sat in a different part of the stand) so hoping we move towards this. Like it or not, we are moving with the times and pre-game is about entertainment, so can see big changes on this front.

Also, the PA system is well overdue an upgrade. I often find it cuts out in the MRS but maybe we'll put that on the long list of infrastructure work which is needed and being addressed very well by the owners.
A decent well considered post, Fezbob. He more than deserves our thanks but equally I think the club is right to move on.

I think the music playlist is chosen by a (different) Wrexham player each match, so unlikely to include much that pre-dates 2010!

I'm sure Bickers selected some Neil Diamond, the top lad.
