The mood is altogether upbeat at Wrexham FC today despite missing out on a £100,000 windfall by losing to Swansea last night in the Welsh Premier Cup Final.

That's because a group led by local businessman Neville Dickens has announced an intention to buy Wrexham FC and yesterday they signed an agreement with the club's administrators.

Wrexham manager Denis Smith told BBC Sport Wales: "There are still obstacles but this is another step forward. In the summer we can start to build a good club here."

In a statement given to BBC Local News announcing the agreement with the Neville Dickens-led group, administrators David Acland and Steve Williams said: "The agreement allows for exclusivity until 30 April 2006, during which time it is hoped that contracts will be exchanged for acquisition of the club's assets."

So, what do fans think of the news? Visit the Fans' forum page in the Wrexham FC mini site to find out.

Meanwhile, you can watch highlights online from last night's game.
