Fans praised after Wrexham vs Chester
The police have praised fans after Wrexham’s derby game with Chester ‘passed off without incident’. Wrexham won the game courtesy of two second half goals from Scott Quigley and Nicky Deverdics. The previous fixture between the two sides led to a number of arrests and Ch Supt Alex Goss said:
“Our aim had always been to see the game pass peacefully while taking into account the rights of the people of Wrexham to go about their normal business. I would also like to thank the public for their patience and understanding and the fans for their cooperation.”
Fundraising continues for Damon Lathrope
Fans have continued to pledge their support for Woking’s Damon Lathrope after he was forced to retire after breaking his leg in a match against Boreham Wood last month. The 28-year-old midfielder has already had operations and faces several more, as he begins his journey following the life-changing injury. Fans smashed the £5,000 target and a new one has been set of £9,000 through a GoFundMe page.
Lathrope said: “I am really disappointed that I didn’t get to fulfil what I had planned at Woking as a player. It’s such a good set up and the plan looked great. I am going to bring and offer as much to the club in any aspect that I can.”
Owers insists Torquay have fighting chance
Torquay United manager Gary Owers insists his side won’t give up after falling a step closer to relegation after a 1-0 defeat to Maidstone United that left the Gulls nine points adrift of safety with ten games left to play.
He said: “I’m sure everyone’s writing us off but we haven’t given up, the lads haven’t given up – I can guarantee everyone that. We’re going to see it through right until the bitter end.”
