How Scoring Five Can Show You Need More Cutting Edge

We’re still getting to know our new manager, but we learned something interesting about him this week: he likes to get his transfer business done early. There are certainly no flies on Graham Barrow when it comes to sorting out his signings. Within a week of the transfer window opening he’d drafted in two new strikers, converted a loan into a permanent deal and made … Continue reading How Scoring Five Can Show You Need More Cutting Edge

Solihull Moors were the only side to … Continue reading Wrexham Want Solihull Moors Of The Same

Barrow Makes Sense For Wrexham AFC

Meet the new boss; same as the old boss. That seems to be how a lot of Wrexham fans have greeted the appointment of Graham Barrow, but I don’t think they’re right. Clearly the club evaluated other options, which might be interesting indicators of our future targets. However, those deals all had practical drawbacks, while the appointment of Barrow is simple, ensures the squad have … Continue reading Barrow Makes Sense For Wrexham AFC
