Graffiti, purportedly by Chester FC fans, has been daubed on the Mold Road stand of the Racecourse ground.
The graffiti which stated “CFC” appears to have been left by someone who ‘supports’ Chester FC, who Wrexham FC are playing on Saturday.
The weekend game is the first ever derby between Wrexham FC and the new Chester FC club, and has been designated a higher security game, commonly known as a ‘bubble match’ due to the secure movement of away fans.
The painted lettering was left on the engraved bricks under the Mold Road stand, with some of the bricks being purchased by family and friends as a memorial to loved ones.
When Wrexham.com popped down earlier most of the graffiti had been cleared off, however there was a few smaller letters, and a larger ‘CFC’ that hadn’t been cleaned off yet.
We spoke to someone from Glyndwr who was cleaning it off, who told us that even though bits of the white paint were coming off, parts of it were more difficult to clean off but it ought to be possible to ensure it is fully removed.
Jo Smith, Glyndwr University Racecourse Stadium Safety Officer said: “Glyndwr University has worked closely with North Wales Police, Wrexham AFC, the local council and the emergency services to ensure both Chester and Wrexham fans enjoy the match in safe and secure surroundings. This includes an increase in security and trained stewards.
“We have cooperated fully with their requests and have a great working relationship which has the best interests of supporters and the community at heart.”
