A direct train to Wembley Stadium is being laid on for Wrexham fans travelling to see the Dragons in the FA Trophy final at the end of the month.

Arriva Trains Wales will use the Welsh government's North-South Express loco-hauled train - Y Gerallt Gymro - for the service from Wrexham General.

Thousands of fans are due to make the trip for the final against North Ferriby United on Sunday, 29 March.

The 08:15 GMT train will take just under three-and-a-half hours.

On the return trip, the service will leave Wembley at either at 16:09 or 17.09, depending on any extra-time being played.

Wrexham reached their second FA Trophy final at Wembley in three seasons with a 5-1 aggregate semi-final win over Torquay United.
