...and we're off there too MORE than.

MORE than 40 school pupils will be coaching it down to Wembley to cheer on The Dragons. Wrexham FC fan and Ysgol Brynhyfryd teacher Huw Tomos-Griffiths was looking to go down with friends.

But when pupil after pupil came knocking on his door asking if they could go to the FA Trophy final against Grimsby - how could he refuse? Huw promptly set about booking a coach to take the young fans to what is anticipated to be a fantastic day at the iconic stadium.

He said: "We now have about 40-odd pupils going down to the match aged between 11 and 18 "I was going to go down with friends, but then I started getting knocks on the door from pupils who were wondering if they could go down to the final.

I just couldn't refuse.

We have now got a coach booked which is going form the leisure centre.

"I have taken pupils before and the club had always been great.

It is nice to see at the games that they are now making their own way there. "It shows that the club does have an appeal outside of Wrexham and I like to see the youngsters connecting with the community side of the club."

And what does he think of Wrexham's chances in the final? "I think they've got a good chance of winning it," said Huw.

"But to be honest, I would take a loss at Wembley if we can get promotion back to the football league - that's the priority."
