Booth Is Out, But Other Dangers Lurk At Wrexham

In the end, she couldn’t leave without one final sideswipe. Stephanie Booth, whose attempts to take control of Wrexham Football Club – or, perhaps, just The Racecourse Ground – have been characterised by what has occasionally looked at times like a pathological inability to keep quiet when she should have, has exited the ongoing soap…
