Three of Wrexham Football Club's board of directors are expecting to be sacked in an extraordinary general meeting.

Managing director John Reames, and fellow directors Dave Bennett and David Griffiths expect to be removed from the board on Wednesday.

The action by chairman Alex Hamilton has been confirmed to BBC News website by Mr Bennett.

"We are expecting to go on Wednesday," he said.

Uncertain future

The move comes after Wrexham Football Club was given notice to quit their Racecourse ground after more than 100 years at the Mold Road site.

A document obtained by members of Wrexham Supporters' Trust reveals that the club were given notice on 21 July.

The document was sent by Eversheds solicitors on behalf of Mr Hamilton.

The future of the League One club has been uncertain for many months.

Mr Hamilton has said the club is up to 5m in debt and all options needed to be explored to keep the club afloat, including moving to a new stadium.

He has previously said some development would have to happen to make the Racecourse financially viable, and last month his managing director, John Reames said the club needed 10m to stay there.
