THE future of Wrexham looks bright after their youth team were crowned champions of the Puma Youth Alliance North West Conference.
Burnley’s failure to win at Oldham Athletic at the weekend means the young Dragons cannot be caught at the top.
Their title success is an incredible achievement given they are the only non-league club in the competition.
Wrexham’s season to remember, in which they only lost once, also comes after the club had their £300,000 funding halved following their relegation from the Football League.
A Dragons club spokesperson said: “The North West Conference is the largest and, this season, the most competitive of the four geographical divisions of youth football run by the Football League.
“Congratulations to coaches Stuart Webber and Joey Jones for leading the team to this thoroughly-deserved title.”
One of the side’s stars, Johnny Hunt, has joined fellow defender Kai Edwards and goal-machine striker Obi Anoruo in being offered a one-year professional contract, while midfielder Matty Hurdman will train with the seniors after being handed a short-term deal.
Wrexham boss Dean Saunders continued to trim his massive first team squad late last week when he released right-back Simon Spender. The 23-year-old, who has been with the club since he was 11, is wanted by Blue Square Premier rivals Barrow, with whom he finished the campaign on loan.
Midfielder Sam Aiston and Patrick Suffo have not been offered new contracts, although that could change.
Midfielder Andy Fleming is on the standby list for England C’s International Challenge Trophy final against Belgium at Oxford United’s Kassam Stadium on May 19.
Existing Wrexham season ticket holders can save 20% on the cost of watching their team next season if they renew before the end of May.
Dragons bosses have frozen prices for a further 12 months as well as introducing a discount scheme in a bid to try to encourage supporters to spend their money early.
Racecourse director Paul Retout claimed the pricing structure was a realistic balancing act.
