Named after Jack Williams, an early stalwart of the Supporters’ Association, the Player of the Year Trophy has been an institution at The Racecourse since the mid-seventies. The votes of the fans determine the winner and, as you can see, their selections contain a number of men who are guaranteed their place in any list of Wrexham greats.

Three players have won the award twice, Mike Williams, Kevin Russell and Gary Bennett, while Neil Roberts achieved an unwanted and rather peculiar feat in 2008 when he was named as Player of the Season and immediately released by Brian Little!
