WREXHAM could agree to penalty shoot-outs settling drawn games after the idea was touted by Football League bosses yesterday.
Club secretary Geraint Parry last night said he was “keeping an open mind” to the possibility after club chairmen agreed to set up a working party to look at the idea.
However, he stressed it would not be the end of draws.
Speaking after attending a meeting in which League chairman Brian Mawhinney floated the idea, Parry said one suggestion was that teams would still each get a point for a draw, while a shoot-out could decide which team won a third point on offer.
“At the moment it’s only something they’re looking at,” he said. “But we’re open to any ideas if they look like they could benefit the game and make it more exciting.
“The idea would be that teams would still get a point for drawing. At the moment there are three points available for a win, but only two for a draw. A shoot-out to decide which team got a bonus point would be one way of settling that.”
He said other ideas discussed yesterday were four points for an away win and bonus points for scoring a specified number of goals.
