5 Questions Before Wrexham AFC v Sutton United

Who’s our Number 9? The answer to this depends on injuries to a large extent, of course. Working on the assumption that this is too early for JJ Hooper, Jason Oswell is surely first in line. If he’s not fit, and Leighton McIntosh isn’t either, it boils down to Bobby Grant or Mark Harris. Harris played through the middle for the Wales Under-21s last week, … Continue reading 5 Questions Before Wrexham AFC v Sutton United

Withdrawn Roles

I misled everyone before the game on Tuesday, but my enthusiasm in announcing the wrong thing was indicative of how much I wanted it to happen. Upon seeing the team sheet, I noted that Akil Wright had replaced Devonte Redmond and leapt to the incorrect conclusion that we’d switched from 4-2-3-1 to 4-3-3, with Wright anchoring the midfield. It was about five minutes into the … Continue reading Withdrawn Roles

PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v Maidenhead United

A significant milestone is brought up against Maidenhead, as Shaun Pearson plays his hundredth Wrexham game. The skipper has embodied all that is good about the team over the last couple of years, and fully deserves to be recognised for his commitment to the club in a time when so many players have come and gone swiftly. Two other players also enjoy a landmark tomorrow: … Continue reading PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v Maidenhead United

Wrexham AFC Mustn’t Panic, Just Play To Their Strengths

I was feeling more positive about this season than I’d expected to until Monday. That certainly gave me cause to reassess things The performance at Hartlepool was poor. Frankly, the clearest indication of that was the low quality of the home side’s performance. The excellent Liam Noble aside, they didn’t look too clever. Okay, so Gime Toure scored two as well but the striker, who … Continue reading Wrexham AFC Mustn’t Panic, Just Play To Their Strengths

PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v Barnet

We’ve enjoyed the upper hand over Barnet in recent years. Indeed, we come into today’s match on the best running streak we’ve managed against The Bees. We did the double over them last season, repeating our achievement from 2014-15, when we managed to put one over the eventual champions twice. We’ve never strung together four consecutive wins over Barnet before. Robbie Evans scored spectacularly in … Continue reading PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v Barnet

How Did Last Week Affect Our Options?

We saw a few outgoings last week, with Mike Fondop finding a new forever home (until the Summer) and both Matt Sargent and Jack Thorn going on loan to gain experience, following Doug Tharme. So where does that leave our squad in terms of depth? I’ve tried to represent our current squad’s coverage of each position we’re likely to deploy below. Is there anywhere that … Continue reading How Did Last Week Affect Our Options?

Preview | Borehamwood v Wrexham AFC

Wrexham will be looking to defend a remarkable record at Borehamwood tonight. Our record against them stands in stark contrast to how we’ve done against next Saturday’s opponents, Dover. In eight clashes we’ve won seven, the only time we’ve failed to beat them being when we lost to a highly dubious penalty at The Racecourse two seasons ago. Last season we enjoyed our best season … Continue reading Preview | Borehamwood v Wrexham AFC

Who Will Be Wrexham AFC’s Player of the Season?

Awards season is upon us, and it’s appropriate to look back at the players who have made the greatest contribution to our promotion challenge, and are therefore in contention for the Player of the Season award. For me, it’s hard to look beyond Shaun Pearson. Last year he rightly won the award as a consequence of his leadership and fierce defending, and this season he … Continue reading Who Will Be Wrexham AFC’s Player of the Season?
