DRAGONS supporters can help to kick-start a new era for the club by pledgingtheir supportfornextseason - now.
That's the message from Wrexham secretary Geraint Parry.
The Reds' future is all but assured after the Nev Dickens-led consortium agreed a rescue package to buy the club and Football League chiefs averted fears they would be expelled from the league for being in administration for longer than the 18-month deadline.
However, as the sale of the club remains several weeks away, every penny still counts for Wrexham.
That's why Parry is urging fans to take advantage of offers on season tickets and buy theirs as soon as possible.
'We still need the money,' he said. 'And the more we get up front the better, because we need to keep going over the
summer when revenue is not at its highest.
'It'sbeenhardwork tosavetheclub but now we have to think about taking the club forward, and one of those first steps would be getting people to pledge their support.'
As well as a number of cash-saving incentives, fans are able to spread the cost of a season ticket across three cheques, with the first being banked immediately and the others being postdated for October 1 and December 1.
Parry is confident the club's imminent takeover will tempt more fans to the Racecourse. But he had a word of thanks for those who have stuck by the club in the most turbulent period in its history.
'The number of Wrexham supporters in the ground last year was up on the previous season when we were in League One,' he said.
'We've been very successful with regards to our community projects, and at each game we had lots of schoolchildren coming in.
'If anything, the reason our average attendance was lower than when we were in League One was
that the sides who came here didn't bring as much support - other than the likes of Chester and Shrewsbury. We've been pleased with the attendances, but we're hoping to do better next season.'
What team the Wrexham fans will get to see in 2006-07 remains to be seen. All but four of manager Denis Smith's squad are out of contract and, until the Dickens deal goes through, no contracts can be inked.
That also ties Smith's hands in the transfer market, although that's not stopped the rumour mill from working overtime.
Former favourite Juan Ugarte is one man being linked with a return tothe Dragons,havingbeenreleased by Crewe. The Basque striker's love of the club is well-known, while Smith - who has been enjoying a break this week - is a confirmed admirer of the 25-year-old, having signed him on three occasions - twice on loan last season.
Anothername toutedwiththeReds is Darlington's Ryan Valentine. The 23-year-old defender, born and bred in Wrexham, is thought to want a move to his hometown club.
