Preview | Wrexham AFC v St Mirren Colts

Discounting spells are caretaker manager, Keates is the second Wrexham manager to have a second spell in charge of the club. He won’t want to repeat the fortunes of Billy Morris, who was in charge for the 1960-1 season and then again for seven months from March 1965. He was hardly a roaring success in his first spell, finishing 16th in Division Four, but second … Continue reading Preview | Wrexham AFC v St Mirren Colts

PREVIEW | Woking v Wrexham AFC

Wins have been hard to come by at Woking. We’ve taken The Cards on in their own back yard seven times and emerged victorious just once. That was in October 2015 when Connor Jennings scored the only goal after 28 minutes. Jennings had a frustrating time despite netting the winner, as he missed a number of good chances which would have made the victory more … Continue reading PREVIEW | Woking v Wrexham AFC

PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v Stockport County

It’s good to see local rivals Stockport County back at The Racecourse after spending an unthinkable six seasons in the Conference North. They are one of our most regular opponents, having met us 119 times stretching back to 1891, and in a week which saw the sad demise of Bury it’s good to welcome an old adversary back. We have an excellent recent record against … Continue reading PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v Stockport County

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 AFC Seek To Break Through at Gateshead

Since we dropped into the National League, our record against Gateshead has been incredibly even. In fact, until we beat them at The Racecourse last November it was symmetrical, as we’d won 4, drawn 2 and lost 3 of our home games to them, and they had an identical home record against us! We haven’t lost at Gateshead since September 2015, when we were defeated … Continue reading Wrexham AFC Seek To Break Through at Gateshead

Watch out for the Wrexham – Eastleigh teamsheet

There’s an obvious question to ask before today’s match with Eastleigh: is Andrew Boyce playing? Boyce has pulled off a remarkable, unwanted feat in this fixture, as he was sent off in each of our last two matches against The Spitfires! Last season he walked in the 67th minute of our 1-1 draw at Eastleigh, receiving a yellow card for a late tackle on Sam … Continue reading Watch out for the Wrexham – Eastleigh teamsheet

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? We’re on for going the whole … Continue reading From Famine To Feast

PREVIEW Wrexham AFC v Maidstone United

We’re unbeaten in seven matches against Maidstone United. We lost there the first time we played them, back in 1989, and since then have beaten them four times and managed three draws. We’ve enjoyed two emphatic home wins over The Stones. Their last trip to The Racecourse was an FA Cup second round tie in December 2014, when a rare Manny Smith goal gave us … Continue reading PREVIEW Wrexham AFC v Maidstone United

PREVIEW Wrexham AFC v Gateshead

Our recent record against Gateshead is poor, but despite enjoying just one win in our last seven clashes, there have been highlights amongst that disappointing run. The solitary victory, for example, was a memorable one as we enjoyed a 4-0 victory two seasons ago which contained that famous goal from Dom Vose, who slalomed through the Heed defence before scoring. We also enjoyed a victory … Continue reading PREVIEW Wrexham AFC v Gateshead
