Quality Photography: Wrexham’s Secret Weapon

Wrexham has many public weapons in our pursuit of promotion (and world domination!) However, it’s worth acknowledging a rather potent secret weapon in our arsenal. The quality of photography available to the club is remarkable, and it might not be immediately apparent, this is an immense benefit as we try to push forwards. Great photography and Wrexham AFC are no strangers, of course.. As a … Continue reading Quality Photography: Wrexham’s Secret Weapon

Tunnicliffe Takes His Opportunity

Phil Parkinson spent the Summer accumulating strength in depth so his side wouldn’t fold under the effects of an injury crisis as we did last season. It’s an appropriate moment to take stock of Parkinson’s squad replenishment as we’ve finally seen what Jordan Tunnicliffe has to offer. Tunnicliffe was an eye-catching capture. He enjoyed an impressive season with Crawley Town in League Two last season, … Continue reading Tunnicliffe Takes His Opportunity

Final Whistle: The Oldest Football Podcast in the World!

I’m delighted to say that the Final Whistle podcast, which I started off at the LDV Vans Trophy final in 2005, is the longest-running football podcast in the world. I’ve been researching this for over a year, and no podcast which began before Final Whistle is still running. An American podcast began before us, but no longer features football, while The Guardian and The Times … Continue reading Final Whistle: The Oldest Football Podcast in the World!

Time For Wrexham Council To Step Up To The Plate

The good times continue to roll, and the remarkable crowds continue to roll in at The Racecourse. Now we just need to ensure that Wrexham Council do their duty next month and ensure that we can include even more local people in this uplifting experience. We enjoyed our biggest crowd of the season on Tuesday, as we broke the 10,000 barrier for the first time … Continue reading Time For Wrexham Council To Step Up To The Plate

I hear you’re a Chester fan now

History was made on Tuesday night. For the first time, Wrexham fans cheered a Chester goal! What could make such a remarkable thing come to pass? The short answer is that if both cross-border rivals won their FA Cup replays we’d clash in a barn-storming first round tie. The long answer is considerably more nuanced. When you get what you desire, it can mean you … Continue reading I hear you’re a Chester fan now

In Case of Emergency

It felt like a bit of a surprise on Tuesday when we changed our formation. The surprise was that it didn’t work. We didn’t earn ourselves an equaliser, and we failed to mount late pressure on Notts County’s wobbly defence, despite having carved a number of good opportunities out throughout the match. That was disappointing, because we’ve regularly fought back successfully after switching shape. There’s … Continue reading In Case of Emergency

Parkinson’s Wrexham Take Wing

The only bad news to come out of last Saturday’s joyous spanking of Torquay United was the injury to Jacob Mendy. The left back went off half way through the first half with what looked like an unpleasant muscular injury. It was a terrible shame, as he has started to illustrate with a flourish why Phil Parkinson thought he would improve his already impressive squad. … Continue reading Parkinson’s Wrexham Take Wing

Back to Macc

A local rivalry re-sparks today, albeit in a friendly game. But is there such a thing as a friendly when Wrexham play Macclesfield? This new iteration of Macclesfield has a lot in common with Wrexham. Okay, on the surface they have their own reality show, the highly entertaining “Robbie Savage: Making Macclesfield“. Yes, they have a well known figure at the helm. But the similarities … Continue reading Back to Macc

Keeping The Dream Alive

Can Wrexham still win the title? We still believe, but circumstances have pushed that belief further into the realms of hope than we’d like. This has been an incredible season, and since the fixtures were announced we knew it was all leading up to this epic encounter with ancient rivals Stockport County. What we didn’t realise at the time was that a quirk in the … Continue reading Keeping The Dream Alive
