Wrexham AFC Look To End On A High Note

Our record against Harrogate Town picked up dramatically when Akil Wright scored past them in our FA Cup qualifying round replay last October. Until that point we’d played 332 minutes against them and never scored. Luke Young added a second to secure our place in the first round. (No highlights are available due to FA restrictions – here’s the podcast!) Previously we’d travelled to Wetherby … Continue reading Wrexham AFC Look To End On A High Note

Wrexham AFC Must End Braintree’s Racecourse Run

Despite their status as a yo-yo club, bouncing between the National League and the National League South, Braintree Town have an impressive record at The Racecourse. In fact, they arrive today looking to secure a third consecutive win in North Wales, and have an impressive record of three wins in six games in our back yard. They beat us 1-0 at home in November 2016, … Continue reading Wrexham AFC Must End Braintree’s Racecourse Run

Wrexham Want Solihull Moors Of The Same

We’ve only welcomed Solihull Moors to The Racecourse three times, but already there have been some eventful clashes between us. Their first game in North Wales was an FA Trophy second round tie in December 2012, which you could argue was the closest we came to defeat before our victory over Grimsby in the final the following March. Solihull Moors were the only side to … Continue reading Wrexham Want Solihull Moors Of The Same

PREVIEW Wrexham AFC v Braintree Town

Last season saw us stop the rot against Braintree, as our home results against them had got gradually worse after a promising start. Their first trip to The Racecourse certainly went according to plan. Andy Morrell, Adrian Cieslewicz, Mathias Pogba, Danny Wright and Neil Ashton all scored in a spectacular 5-1 win, Ashton’s injury time penalty being his first goal for Wrexham. The Iron next … Continue reading PREVIEW Wrexham AFC v Braintree Town

That Whole James Gray – Zinedine Zidane Thing

It looks like James Gray has unwittingly sparked one of the more unexpected debates at the start of this season. I can’t say it occurred to me to question his role in the current side until it was publicly doubted, and to be honest I can’t see why a perceived lack of goals is an issue. After all, he has a strike rate of a … Continue reading That Whole James Gray – Zinedine Zidane Thing

Wrexham FC’s 2014 in Numbers

Nobody can claim that 2014 has been a vintage year on the pitch. Looking through the figures from the last twelve months perhaps reflects this: without consistent performances the statistics lead us toward some rather surprising conclusions. But first the facts: we played 54 games in 2014 and won 38% of them, losing 33%. Appropriately in a mediocre year, that’s pretty much mid-table form: in … Continue reading Wrexham FC’s 2014 in Numbers
