Wrexham and Immigration: Keates Gets It; Atherton Doesn’t

Dean Keates isn’t from Wrexham, but he hit the nail on the head when he talked about the town on the Summer. Asked about his recruitment, he said he wanted to sign players who are “honest hard-working people” to match “the DNA of this community”. Perhaps our MP, Sarah Atherton, ought to sit down with Keates so he can tell her a few things about … Continue reading Wrexham and Immigration: Keates Gets It; Atherton Doesn’t

Davies and Jarvis Benefit from the Power of Three

Last Saturday wasn’t great. Losing to a lower division team on penalties with a heavily-rotated team isn’t all that of a shock: it’s not as if the FA Trophy was ever a priority, after all. However, we have enough squad depth to be able to make 9 changes from the previous game and still come through.

It’s been a season of famine or feast so far, as an uneven schedule is reflected in our form. Our form has varied dramatically: a 5-match unbeaten run which earned Dean Keates the manager of the month award has been book-ended by uncomfortable spells without a win. The unpredictable nature of our fixture list presents massive challenges to coaches and players alike, with periods where … Continue reading Famine or Feast: Why Nine Acre Is Crucial This Season

Managing Expectations

It’s the consistent message coming out of the club, and a vital idea we have to grasp. In a time of great excitement, we need to manage our expectations. In the Zoom meeting for WST members, Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney talked about considerably elevating our status. I’m really happy to hear that our potential owners are ambitious, but part of my satisfaction is based … Continue reading Managing Expectations
