WREXHAM Football Club could go into administration tomorrow.
The club was hoping a bid by former chairman Mark Guterman supported by club legends Dixie McNeil and Pryce Griffiths and Wrexham Assembly Member Dr John Marek would be accepted to stave off the administrators and prevent the club losing three points in the league.
But Mr Guterman has withdrawn his bid after majority shareholder Alex Hamilton failed to formally respond to his offer.
If the club is placed in the hands of administrators Begbies Traynor by the High Court in Manchester tomorrow the club will be docked 10 points by the Football League, leaving only MK Dons and Stockport County below them in League One.
Their good results this season mean the points loss will not necessarily cause a financially crippling relegation as long as the team continues to get results.
If the club is not deemed an adequate case for administration by the judge, it will face a winding-up petition from the Inland Revenue on December 14 which could see the squad and ground sold off in pieces to recover as much as possible of the £900,000 the club owes the taxman.
Until this week, Mr Guterman's bid was the only one left on the table after Mr Hamilton rejected a purchase plan by supporters group the Wrexham Supporters Trust (WST).
The WST has now set up an emergency hotline, 0904 043 5000, to raise money.
The line is a premium rate number costing £1.50 per call, of which £1.07 goes to the WST war chest which the group intends to use to get Mr Hamilton out of the club and safeguard Wrexham's future.
'We are asking everyone in Wrexham and North Wales who want the club to survive to call and help save the club,' said a WST spokesman.
'It's just a simple phone call, but it can make a big difference.
'We will also be asking football supporters across the UK to help us by 'Ringing for Wrexham' over the coming weeks.'
