WREXHAM RUFC is one of 47 grassroots clubs from across Wales to benefit from a massive £250,000 grant.
The Bryn Estyn Road outfit have been awarded £4,000 from the Foundation for Sports and Arts (FSA) to expand their training area under floodlights.
In order to access a share of the grant, which was administered by the WRU, Wrexham had to raise the same amount through their own fundraising schemes.
Richard Boardley of the FSA said: “The trustees were extremely impressed by the WRU’s bid for funding and we were delighted to have been able to allocate £250,000 to the project. We are especially pleased to see the diverse range of community projects that have been selected to receive grants from the project.”
