Saunders confirms Wrexham players not paid
Friday 29 July 2011
Wrexham have cancelled two pre-season friendlies because their players' wages have not been paid this month. The club shares the same owners and Racecourse home as rugby league side the Crusaders, whose withdrawal from Super League was announced on Tuesday.
The Wrexham Supporters' Trust have been involved in a lengthy bid to buy the Conference club from owner Geoff Moss. Manager Dean Saunders confirmed the players have not received their wages.
Veteran Wrexham striker Gareth Taylor said: "Obviously there's the on-going situation of the potential takeover of the club and obviously while that's not been sorted out, it creates a problem. Hopefully that can be sorted out sooner rather than later."
