WREXHAM have been given permission to switch two more of their home matches next season – so their fans can watch Wales’ Six Nations bid.
Grimsby Town will now visit Brian Carey’s Wrexham 24 hours earlier on Friday, February 22, as Wales play Italy in Cardiff the following day.
And while the Dragons’ home clash with Darlington will still be on Saturday, February 2, it will now be a 2.30pm kick-off as Wales face England in Twickenham at 4.30pm the same day.
Wrexham ran an on-line poll and discovered that more than 60% of fans preferred having the games switched so they could watch both sports.
Club secretary Geraint Parry said: "We had a poll and it came back that less than 40% said they weren’t bothered, but more than 60% wanted to be able to watch both games.
"I think it does affect us when the games are on the same day, so we asked to be able to change them and thankfully both Grimsby and Darlington have agreed."
Home matches against Shrewsbury Town and Chester City have already been put back 24 hours to Sunday, November 4 and Sunday, November 25 respectively, on police advice.
Meanwhile, police have given permission for the visit of Hereford Town to the Racecourse to still go ahead on Saturday, September 1, with kick-off at 3pm., much to the delight of Parry.
He said: "I don’t think anyone really likes having the games at midday on a Sunday, and thankfully the police were happy enough to allow the game to go ahead at the normal time. But they have said they will be monitoring the situation and it all depends on the behaviour of the fans."
