PREVIEW Eastleigh FC v Wrexham AFC

For the fourth season in a row we are away for our last match of the season, and Dean Keates will hope to bring back memories of our most recent victory in our final game, when his penalty helped earn victory at Telford two years ago in his final professional match. With no victory over Eastleigh since our first meeting in September 2014, we travel … Continue reading PREVIEW Eastleigh FC v Wrexham AFC

BALANCE SHEET: Wrexham FC v AFC Telford United

Positives None Negatives The ease with which Telford carved our defence open. The regularity with which we lost the ball in our own half. How Telford completely negated our attacking players simply by being compact in their own half. The deflation of following Tuesday’s promising performance with this. How the concession of an early goal seemed to rattle us,as it did against Dartford. Recent home … Continue reading BALANCE SHEET: Wrexham FC v AFC Telford United

THE WRAP: Wrexham FC v AFC Telford United

Second red card of Connor Jennings’ career: first one for Macclesfield against Halifax in August 2013, five minutes after coming on as a sub. Neil Ashton made his 225th Wrexham appearance. Mark Carrington made his … Continue reading THE WRAP: Wrexham FC v AFC Telford United

Do Go Chasing Waterfall

So we’ve signed a centre back, “the immovable water feature” as he’ll be known from now on. Obviously we all need to reserve judgement until he’s settled in, but my recollection of his performance against us for Gainsborough Trinity in the FA Trophy semi-final is positive and he’s certainly the right sort of signing for our current situation. Ever since the season started I’d felt … Continue reading Do Go Chasing Waterfall

Not a Bear In Sight – Policing Wrexham Games

As the news filtered around the internet, it seemed almost like someone was having a joke. Wrexham’s away match at Dartford was to be moved from 3pm on a Saturday to 7.45pm on a Friday night on “police advice”. The decision was baffling. Over 200 miles separate the two clubs and their first ever match-up; a 2 – 2 draw at the Racecourse; had played … Continue reading Not a Bear In Sight – Policing Wrexham Games
