Ryan Giggs makes surprise visit to club

Wales National Team Manager Ryan Giggs paid a surprise visit to a junior club during their half-term holiday camp.

The former Manchester United and Wales star dropped in on the boys from Brymbo Lodge Youth U14 while they were enjoying their school holidays. 
He took time to chat to the boys and their coaches and posed for several selfies at the club's Solway Banks ground. 
Giggs visited the bronze accredited club, currently celebrating their 20th anniversary, after checking-out the facilities at Wrexham's Colliers Park training complex, which the FAW is proposing to develop.

Coach Kieran Howard, who won our Welsh Community People's Award in 2016, said: "It was fantastic that Ryan took the time to visit us and sign everything for the boys. 
"It was great for our community and we were the talk of the town after he left." 
Giggs was introduced to about 150 players and parents by team captain Jake Harper before talking to them about his plans for his new job and highlights from his playing career. 
Howard, whose son Rhys plays for the club, said: "It was a great day for us. 
"We are a community club which has done its best to grow in the area.
“Ryan watched a training session and said he was very impressed with what he’d seen.”
