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 … Continue reading The Rock of Gibraltar
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. However, four of Bishop’s goals came in two games against Gateshead and five of Ogleby’s came against Hyde. The problem is Wrexham don’t play Gateshead and Hyde every week. Adrian Cieslewicz has obviously been sold to high flying rivals Kidderminster but he only managed two goals anyway in a disruptive season for the speedy Pole. Brett Ormerod has managed five goals this season and needs to find his goal scoring … Continue reading The Strikers Dilemma
After two years working at Wrexham, I take a look back at some of the memorable moments I witnessed behind the mic of Wrexham Player. From dull 0-0 draws, to 6-1 thrashings. From the luxuries of Wembley to the not … Continue reading And It’s Goodnight From Me

A tremendous season in terms of emotion and action for Wrexham, but also the most heartbreaking … Continue reading A tale of screamers, elation, despair…. and Aggborough Pies!

A 1-0 win against 13th placed Cambridge United courtesy of Jay Colbeck’s second goal of the season. With seven changes to the team that slumped to a poor defeat at Woking at the weekend, there was a fresh look about the team, with an influx of the youth players, showing why they deserve a look in. No Riley, Westwood, Harris, Keates or Stephen Wright, in came Rushton, Clowes, Colbeck and … Continue reading A New Breed of Dragon
“Ohhhhh what a goal Mickey Thomas!” The immortal words etched into every Wrexham fan’s memory as Mickey Thomas scored THAT free kick against Arsenal in the FA Cup Third Round at The Racecourse back in 1992. The commentator was Tony Gubba who sadly passed away at the weekend after a career that lasted over 40 years. A sad day for all those who followed sport as Gubba was an instantly recognisable voice. From covering the Olympic Games in 1972, to commentating at every World Cup from 1974 to 2006, Gubba led a glorious career. His commentaries even appeared in “The … Continue reading Glorious Gubba!
