More than 40,000 people turned out to watch Wrexham AFC’s victory parade through the city centre. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Crowds filled the streets from the Racecourse through to Yorke Street to soak in the atmosphere and celebrate the success of the men and women’s teams. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The turnout far exceeded the estimated 15,000-20,000 initially expected for last night’s event, which was organised by the Events Team at Wrexham Council. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Today North Wales Police have confirmed that no arrests were made during the course of the evening. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“We are happy to report that no significant issues arose, no arrests were made, and that the evening was a celebratory occasion enjoyed by so many of the club’s supporters. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“It was a privilege for our local officers to join in with the community and be part of such a tremendous and historic occasion which will be remembered for many years to come.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
