TOP rock band the Super Furry Animals last night backed Wrexham FC's fight for survival.
The band hope the Dragons' future is safeguarded ahead of their May 25 concert at Wrexham's William Aston Hall.
Wrexham lost their relegation fight on Tuesday after a 2-1 defeat at home to Brentford and face eviction from their beloved Racecourse ground on July 21 unless a deal can be struck with owner Alex Hamilton.
A spokesman for the Furries said: "They hope Alex Hamilton will have done the decent thing and sold Wrexham FC in order to safeguard the club and the stadium by the time the show happens."
Meanwhile, the Furries have changed ticket arrangements for the gig after fans complained about charges for telephone bookings.
One fan told the Daily Post he faced paying almost £7 in fees on top of the £13.50 cost of the ticket - a 50% mark-up.
But after discussions between the band and promoters Metropolis Music, it was decided the remaining tickets will be on sale at Phase One Records, Wrexham.
The promoters also asked ticket agency See Tickets to drop their requirement all tickets be sent out by special delivery reducing postage and packaging costs to the standard £1.75.
The spokesman added: "Metropolis have already expressed regret at the ticketing error that allowed this situation to arise and the failure to ensure a local point of sale for Wrexham fans to buy their tickets."
The gig is part of a seven-date UK tour ahead of the release of the band's new album.
* The Furries will also appear at this year's Sesiwn Fawr in Dolgellau on July 1. Tickets cost £14 and are available locally.
