SENIOR international football is returning to the Racecourse.
Wrexham's ground will play host to a friendly between Wales and Liechtenstein on Tuesday, November 14.
It will be the first time the Principality have played at the home of the Dragons for more than two years.
Reds secretary Geraint Parry said: 'It's great recognition for the club, and great news for football fans across North Wales. For most Wales games supporters have to make the long trip south so this is an ideal opportunity for them to show their support without having to travel so far.'
Meanwhile, the comings and goings at Wrexham took a twist for the bizarre this week.
The out-of-contract Lee McEvilly looked set to join fel-
low forward Jon Walters through the exit door when he agreed a move to League One's Bradford. The 24-year-old Northern Ireland international was unveiled at Valley Parade, only for the deal to fall through because the Bantams feared the foot injury McEvilly sustained last season had not healed prop-erly. Dragons boss Denis Smith had no concerns over his fitness though, and handed him a two-year-contract
McEvilly is likely to be joined at the Reds by fans' favourite Juan Ugarte. The Basque hitman should sign up once he returns from Spain, where he has been having an operation on his knee, while an unnamed Championship front-runner is also on Smith's wish-list, as is
former Aston Villa right-winger Jamie Ward.
Definite signings are defenders Steve Evans and Ryan Valentine. The latter will replace left-back Andy Holt, who rejected a new deal in a favour of a move to Northampton of League One. However, Danny Williams - last season's player of the year - and Mark Jones - last season's top-scorer - have committed their future for a further two years, while teenage strikers Marc Williams and Jamie Reed have been placed on first-team contracts.
Meanwhile, tickets are on sale for the Dragons' glamour pre-season home friendly with Liverpool on Saturday, July 15 (3pm). The game is an all-ticket affair.
Liverpool reserves will play their second-string games at the
Racecourse for a third successive season. That means Wrexham's reserves will continue to play their matches at Buckley Town's Globe Way. A Dragons spokesperson said: 'Everyone at Globe Way was outstanding in their co-operation last year and we all look forward to continuing a very strong partnership in the months ahead.' nChester City were yesterday attempting to sign Tranmere defender Paul Linwood, who spent a short period on loan at Wrexham last season.
The 22-year-old contract with the Prenton Park outfit runs out tomorrow, and as he is under 24, a fee will have to be agreed between the clubs.
Another defender on his way back to the Blues is former man Phil Bolland, who has been playing for Peterborough. WELCOME BACK? Juan Ugarte.
