Wrexham Take Their Best Shot

Our 2-0 win over Aldershot last October ended a run of three defeats against them, our worst sequence of consecutive losses in this fixture. Now we need to break the pattern of 2-0 defeats at The Recreation Ground – each of our last two trips there ended in that scoreline. Our last win at Aldershot was in November 2015 when Wes York’s second half goal … Continue reading Wrexham Take Their Best Shot

From Famine To Feast

Alex Taylor asked on #askwxm about penalties before the Dagenham game, as at that point we hadn’t had one this season. which was a stroke of genius, because he made it inevitable that we’d be awarded a penalty in that match!   One for @m_griffiths92 #askwxm for Saturday’s game… what’s the longest we’ve gone without being awarded a penalty?

Did you enjoy Mike Fondop’s rather clever overhead kick? Rob Lainton’s penalty save? Well, my favourite moment of the Dover game came in the eleventh minute.

PREVIEW: Aldershot Town v Wrexham AFC

Gary Mills’ loan signings tend to be like Donald Trump’s sense of humility: seldom seen, to the point where you begin to wonder if they ever existed in the first place.
