WREXHAM supporters are celebrating a momentous day after The Appeal Court in London today (Tuesday) rejected former owner Alex Hamilton's bid to seize control of the Racecourse Ground.
The ruling means the stadium stays in the hands of club's administrators who can now look to complete their task of selling the club seeing as litigation over the ownership of the ground has come to an end.
The club does face explusion from the Football League if still in administration by 3 June but joint administrator Steve Williams has indicated there have already been some enquiries and, while inviting any further interested parties to submit their business case, expressed hope the situation would be resolved to see the Dragons start the new season in August.
It is hoped the ruling will help bring to an end 18 months of turmoil at the club that saw them placed into administration in December 2004 with debts of more than £4million, which brought with it a 10-point penalty from the Football League that ultimately sealed their relegation to League Two last May.
A delighted Wrexham supporters trust chairman Bruce Clapton said: "It may have taken time and dedication but justice has been done.
"The ground is now back in Wrexham's hands and this can only help in the fight to save the club."
