Of course, we all know of the excellent work done by the WST, the Racecourse Foundation, the Disabled Supporters Association and our Disability Liaison Officer for a number of years. Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds … Continue reading And Now The Good News

It was an occasion we’ve been … Continue reading They shout loudest, but represent nobody

Wrexham’s Euro Stars

If there’s a lesson to learn from watching the European Championships, it’s that you shouldn’t jump to conclusions. There are three ex-Wrexham players appearing in the tournament, and they all started their nation’s first match, yet none of them got a sustained chance to show their class for us.
