Wrexham only allowed 20 players

Wrexham, who visit Edgar Street for a friendly against Hereford United this evening, have been told by their administrators that the club can only have 20 players this season.

Earlier this week, according to ic Wales, the administrators went to the High Court to win an injunction stopping Alex Hamilton, who currently owns the club, from evicting the club from the ground and a hearing for the case has been set for November, unless the long drawn out attempts to buy out Hamilton happen in the meantime.

All this uncertainty does little for the nerves of the Wrexham faithful, or manager Denys Smith. The former Stoke star said: "I am allowed 20 players because we are in administration. I have 18 signed and must be very careful how I fill the other two gaps.

"With the help of the supporters' trust, I have been able to secure contracts for some of the players, I love these people to bits because they have been such a great help in the situation we are in."

Smith is expected to have a couple of trialists at Edgar Street this evening.

Wrexham line-up: Whitely, Lawrence, Williams, Ferguson, Bennett, Mark Crowall, Matthew Crowall, Mark Jones, Pejic, Holt, Spender, Mackin, Quinn, Done, Michael Jones, Harrison, Evans, Ingram, McEvilly and Walters.

Lee McEvilly, a striker, who played against the Bulls in the Conference last season, recently moved to the Racecourse from Accrington Stanley.

The friendly is due to start at 7.45pm and admission is £7 for adults and £4 for concessions.
