Jamie’s Man of the Match vs Halifax

Last Saturday’s goalless home encounter with high flying Halifax Town was a missed opportunity to be trailing within a single point.

It was a close clash between both Conference sides at the Racecourse Ground knowing that if any of them had found the back of the net, it would have been 99.9% sure to have secured the 3 points.

You may have heard the full time podcast on Wrexham Player or on the Wrexham Supporters’ Association website with Mark Griffiths and I, as I was asked to pick my man of the match.

I did a shortlist of 3 Dragons players on the podcast, scroll down all the way to the bottom to see who won the award…

Johnny Hunt

Johnny Hunt played 74 minutes of the game before Connor Jennings took his place in a bid to be the hero of the day by scoring the winning goal.

Hunt’s second half performance was when he played best out of the two halves.

5 minutes of the second half, Hunt was displaying danger from the left wing when he attacked Halifax’s defence producing a deadly low delivery across the face of the goal with Bishop getting to the end of the pass rattling the crossbar. Then within minutes later he did it once again but unfortunately none of his team mates could get their foot behind the ball.

You may have heard Mark in the podcast point out that Hunt isn’t getting regular starts with last Saturday to be his 2nd start in 5 matches.

Andy Bishop

Andy Bishop has had a fantastic week in terms of goals.

The striker scored two goals last Tuesday night against Macclesfield Town in the final qualifying round of the FA Cup, he should have at least got a hat-trick in that game but missed his penalty.

The performance from Tuesday evening got him a starting place last Saturday. Bishop may not have scored in the 90 minutes but did show a lot of commitment.

Nearly every time Bishop had the possession he did very well sticking with the ball especially when the defenders of Halifax are known to be giants. Also, Andy didn’t just go for the glory when being put in tight angles and situations he kept himself aware for what options he had. Very good thinking throughout the match.


Wes York

The Wrexham forward has convinced me enough to pick him as my man of the match against Halifax Town.

Wes York throughout the 89 minutes he was on for worked really hard on and off the ball. When York attacked he used the advantage of his pace to beat the opponent’s defenders, the man just never gave up even when he was 2nd favourite to win the ball.

Some deliveries may have been going nowhere but York was certainly up for it with the way he cut in into the defence from the wing.

Well done York.
