Here’s a fine tribute to Diego Maradona, which expresses how he is linked not just to Argentinians and Neapolitans, but all of us, far more eloquently than I could. Read more here. We all have moments that we cherish as Football fans, snapshots that stay with you.Falcao’s dummy against Italy in 1982 is a classic, or the George Best goal in America where he destroys … Continue reading Sheer Poetry from shinner1978: Diolch Diego.
Howdy folks! I’ve not posted anything on here for a while for a few reasons, which I’ll go through in a minute. However, I reckon it’s time to slap a few more posts up now! Let me explain: I committed to doing some extra work for the club in the Summer, and as a result I’ve not been putting anything on here. However, now I’m … Continue reading I’d Better Get Back To Business!

Roberts o.g. 9, Sam 29, Thomas 55, Barrett 85) Reds Ease Into Last Eight The inevitable was confirmed at a low-key Racecourse tonight when, before a sparse crowd and with a line-up chosen with more than half an eye on next Saturday’s league … Continue reading banh

Jay Harris’ 450th career league appearance. Shaun Pearson’s 125th game for Wrexham. Eastleigh’s 16 fans is the smallest away support at The Racecourse in 176 games, since Braintree brought 14 fans in September 2013. Wrexham are unbeaten in 9 league games against Eastleigh.

I’m sure you won’t need to be reminded of what happened the last time Eastleigh visited The Racecourse. A traumatic home defeat in the National League play-offs ended our season in controversial circumstances, as we conceded the only goal in extra time after a hotly-contested decision to disallow a Kieran Kennedy goal which would have won the game in normal time. Ironically, that defeat came … Continue reading PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v Eastleigh
I’ve spent the season complaining about the impact VAR has on the game. After last Saturday, I’m thinking again. Come to think of it, I’ve also spent a decade moaning about National League referees, but Yeovil’s first goal against us last weekend wasn’t something you could blame the officials for. They clearly needed some help to understand what happened and judge it correctly. I know … Continue reading O VAR, Where Art Thou?
We’ve only faced Yeovil Town twice, but both occasions were packed with goals. Unfortunately, in our only trip to Huish Park it was the home team who provided most of them! We travelled to Somerset in November 2003 for a first round FA Cup match, and took a real beating. We were 4-0 down after an hour and ended up losing 4-1, with. Chris Armstrong … Continue reading PREVIEW | Yeovil Town v Wrexham AFC
Dean Keates’ 100th game as Wrexham manager. Dean Keates is the 16th Wrexham manager to reach 100 games. Wrexham have scored 2 goals in each of their last 4 away games. This is the first time they’ve scored more than one goal in 4 consecutive away games since we joined the National League. Last time Wrexham scored more than one goal in 4 consecutive away … Continue reading #WxmAnorak | Bromley 0 Wrexham AFC 2
Last Saturday’s postponement means that Dean Keates’ 100th game as Wrexham manager comes today, against the side he beat to earn his first win as manager. Bromley were the visitors to The Racecourse when goals from Shaun Harrad and Gerry McDonagh earned a 2-1 home win in October 2016. However, our record at Hayes Lane could do with some improvement. Luke Young’s 77th minute winner … Continue reading PREVIEW | Bromley v Wrexham AFC
Tomorrow is Dean Keates’ hundredth game as Wrexham manager. He’s the sixteenth person to reach that milestone, and boasts the fifth best league loss percentage in our history. Keates is only the second person to have two spells as our boss, and is enjoying considerably more success than the other one. Billy Morris was in the Racecourse hot seat twice in the early 1960s, but … Continue reading PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v Torquay United
