A tale of screamers, elation, despair…. and Aggborough Pies!

Better late than never I suppose! My review of the 2012/13 season comes a bit later than Mark Griffiths’ but I personally blame A-levels! A tremendous season in terms of emotion and action for Wrexham, but also the most heartbreaking since that game at Hereford back in 2008 where Wrexham condemned to the league they very nearly escaped at the third attempt at Wembley. I’ll … Continue reading A tale of screamers, elation, despair…. and Aggborough Pies!

End of Term Report Part Five

Andy Morrell went through plenty of options up front, including himself. But did the forward line fire? Strikers Danny Wright The leader of the line and a major loss once he was injured against Braintree, Wright kicked on from a decent first season with the club and added a cutting edge to his play. Previously he’d appeared an honest tryer with a bit of pace … Continue reading End of Term Report Part Five

End of Term Report Part Four

The defence stood up to scrutiny last season, but how did the engine room fare? Midfielders Dean Keates Once again, the skipper ran through the pain barrier for the club and he remains a totemic figure in the centre of the pitch. At the heart of everything, he sets the passing tempo and leads from the front, playing with a fire which complements Jay Harris’ … Continue reading End of Term Report Part Four

Morrell’s Balancing Act Between Quality and Strength in Depth

Ever since we dropped into the Conference this part of the year has seemed particularly fraught and crucial. Talk of a retained list seems irrelevant: the issue isn’t who we want to keep, but who we can manage to hang onto. Danny Wright has departed already, and the likes of Martin Riley and Dean Keates are surely crucial to the spine of next season’s side. … Continue reading Morrell’s Balancing Act Between Quality and Strength in Depth

It’s a sign that you’re disappearing up your own backside when you start replying to your own blog post! Yesterday’s comments by Danny Wright on his departure to Forest Green certainly stirred up a hornet’s nest! The club have now responded, which is wise in the circumstances. Normally I’d rather a club wasn’t drawn into a “he said she said” sort of dispute, but if … Continue reading The Danny Wright Saga: The Board Speaks Out!

Wright Opens Up Sores As He Attacks The Trust

As I write a storm is brewing over Wrexham FC. Or, more accurately, the WST. Danny Wright has just tweeted his justification for leaving The Racecourse, and it makes for uncomfortable reading: So what to make of that? One has to immediately say that a popular player who leaves a club might feel the need to justify his decision, and any such account will be … Continue reading Wright Opens Up Sores As He Attacks The Trust

End of Term Report Part One

Well, it’s been emotional! But now the dust has settled, how did we actually do? As Andy Morrell and Billy Barr contemplate their players’ futures, here’s an end of term report. Goalkeepers Chris Maxwell Made a real impact when he returned with his confident organisation of the back four, fast reflexes and speed off the line. Despite not having played since he left us, and … Continue reading End of Term Report Part One
