FOOTBALL fans are trying to arrange for a Far Eastern supporter to visit the Racecourse for the first time, thanks to the Wrexham Mail.
Adhi Nugraha, from West Java in Indonesia, has supported Wrexham for two years since he came across Wrexham Football Club's website. He has never been to the UK and has only seen Wrexham play thanks to satellite broadcasts. His girlfriend Angelie Rosaline Margaretha is also a fan.
'We saw the piece in the Mail and thought it would be a nice gesture to bring him over and give him the proper Wrexham experience,' said Wrexham fan Geraint Davies.
'After all that's been happening in his part of the world, he is still keeping an eye on us.'
Adhi escaped the recent tsunami but many people in his village lost friends and family elsewhere in Indonesia.
Geraint and his friends hope to get Adhi here as soon as is practical - based on the timing of his exams, whether he has a passport and how long it takes to raise funds.
These factors may mean Adhi cannot get to a game before next season but fans are hopeful he will still be able to see the club at the Racecourse - subject to a succesful conclusion to negotiations for the club's ownership.
According to fans' research Emirates airlines will fly Adhi and a companion for about £395 each, return. As well as the money needed to cover these flights, fans will also be raising money for the three-hour train journey from his home to Jakarta airport.
