The Rock of Gibraltar

Wrexham FC has a history of international footballers in its ranks. More often than not, it is to represent the Welsh National team. But Wrexham’s summer signing and rock at the back Dave Artell has been called up to a new international team: Gibraltar. Wrexham’s own Gibraltarian Rock qualifies for the small country through his…

The Strikers Dilemma

One thing Wrexham have been lacking this season is an out and out goalscorer. As it stands, Andy Bishop and Rob Ogleby are the leading scorers with seven goals each.
