Decisions, Decisions

As we all play the annual game of guessing which players the Wrexham manager will retain for next season, there’s an interesting contrast between two players which will exercise his mind. Paul Rutherford and Iffy Allen perform in similar areas of the pitch, but their approaches are direct opposites. Superficially, they seem fairly similar. Both…

Who’s Your Player of the Season?

Voting opened this week for the Player of the Season and the Young Player, and I can’t recall a more unpredictable year for either trophy. It’s a natural consequence of a season which has lacked stability that no obvious candidates have emerged. Furthermore, when a campaign has split itself into such diverse segments, it’s difficult…

PREVIEW: Bromley v Wrexham AFC

We’ve been to Bromley once before, and it was horrible! It was the opening day of last season, and Gary Mills’ newly assembled side went into the match against their newly-promoted opponents on a wave of optimism. In front of a considerable away following, basking in hope and August sunshine, they started superbly too. The…

Jordan White Gives Dean Keates a Nudge

Dean Keates has made it clear that his squad are playing for contracts, and Jordan White has come up with a cunning ploy to appeal to his manager by becoming two players in one! It was logical to drop the big striker into the back four last Saturday when injuries meant Martin Riley was the…

PREVIEW Wrexham AFC v Tranmere Rovers

The last time we faced Tranmere in the league at The Racecourse was a 2-2 draw in October 2015. Ironically there might be as many players who appeared in a white shirt that night in the Wrexham side as there are survivors from Gary Mills’ selection, as Martin Riley played for Rovers whereas only Robbie…

Neil Taylor’s Fake News Weekend

Let’s start by getting all the important facts out in the open. Neil Taylor’s challenge on Seamus Coleman was inexcusable. No matter what you say about it, there is no defence for a challenge like that. If, at any point in this post, you think I’m making excuses for him, please refer back to that…

Keates Lands a Big Signing

Want another reason to donate to the Build The Budget campaign? Would it help if I was to reveal to you that Dean Keates has already made a key signing which will ensure that your money will be spent wisely in the Summer? There’s a lot of justified optimism around the club, and it’s clear…

PREVIEW: Wrexham AFC v Torquay United

Our recent from against Torquay is solid, with five wins and just two defeats in our last twelve clashes. We won the last two times The Gulls travelled to North Wales. Last season we trailled at the break in our first home game of the season, but goals from Dom Vose, Connor Jennings and James…
