GWFA will see former Liverpool and Wrexham striker Lee Jones and ex-Sheffield United assistant manager Adam Owen work with the university, which owns the town's Racecourse Stadium, to provide footballers with degrees.
Horne said the GWFA was a "win-win situation" for the club, the university and the local community.
He is still hands-on with the GWFA
, and together with fellow director and former Liverpool striker Lee Jones is preparing to recruit another batch of students for next season, following the success of the current cohort which includes Wrexham FC captain Dean Keates and players from clubs including Manchester City, QPR, Burnley and Leicester City.
Owen, already an Honorary Fellow of Glyndw r University, stars in a DVD showcasing the academy and believes the GWFA
will prove popular with players in the Football League.
They have joined forces to launch the Glyndw r Wrexham Football Academy (GWFA
) in a partnership that will see former Liverpool and Dragons striker Lee Jones and ex-Sheffield United assistant manager Adam Owen work with the university to provide footballers with degrees.
