PREVIEW | Aldershot Town v Wrexham AFC

We travel to Aldershot short on clean sheets but having also scored in 16 consecutive league games, our second longest run in the National League. Our last goalless draw was at Aldershot last December, 36 games ago, so perhaps something’s going to give. The last time we kept one clean sheet in our first eleven games was 2007, and we’ve haven’t achieved just one in … Continue reading PREVIEW | Aldershot Town v Wrexham AFC

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

Wrexham’s Greatest FA Cup XI

It’s wonderful to see Wrexham rediscovering our FA Cup form and reminding us all of the remarkable pedigree we’ve enjoyed in this competition. When we drew at Harrogate in this season’s qualifying round, we set a club record for the most games without a win in the FA Cup. Since then we’ve rediscovered our winning ways, and now approach an opportunity to add a cup … Continue reading Wrexham’s Greatest FA Cup XI

Wrexham AFC Women Write a New Page in Our History

Inevitably, the focus at a football club is on the first team, and this season is no different as we hope Sam Ricketts’ side can make a sustained push for promotion. But there’s more than one first team at Wrexham AFC this season. Even in the context of this ancient club’s history, what’s happening is a game changer. We have a fully-affiliated Wrexham Women’s team … Continue reading Wrexham AFC Women Write a New Page in Our History

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. Gerry McDonagh might be the man to buck that trend. Certainly, his crucial intervention on Tuesday offered hope that he might be the man to spearhead our attack in the absence of the unfortunate … Continue reading PREVIEW: Aldershot Town v Wrexham AFC

PREVIEW: Wrexham AFC v Torquay United

Here’s my column from last week’s Leader. It forms part of the paper’s comprehensive pre-match coverage every Friday, featuring interviews, an in-depth look at the opposition and lots of statistical analysis. All content in the column (c) http://www.leaderlive.co.uk. Let’s get the unpleasantness out of the way first. Defeat tomorrow would mean we’d have lost five games on the bounce, and you have to go back … Continue reading PREVIEW: Wrexham AFC v Torquay United

PREVIEW: Aldershot Town v Wrexham AFC

Gary Mills will be keen to maintain our good run of form tomorrow against Aldershot, an opponent we’ve tended to have the upper hand against in recent clashes. Since we reacquainted ourselves with The Shots in The Conference following their demise and return to the Football League we’ve had by far the better of things. Admittedly, things started badly as a trip to Aldershot in … Continue reading PREVIEW: Aldershot Town v Wrexham AFC

PREVIEW: Wrexham AFC v Gateshead FC

It’s a big day for Gary Mills tomorrow as he faces his old side. Mills spent two seasons at Gateshead, taking charge of 103 games, and he had a variable record in this fixture. Two seasons ago his encounters with Wrexham turned out to be a wash out. When we met at the Gateshead International Stadium in September 2013 the visitors took a decisive grip … Continue reading PREVIEW: Wrexham AFC v Gateshead FC

PREVIEW: Wrexham AFC v Barrow AFC

Wrexham need to get back to winning ways in the league after seeing their interest in the FA Cup end so disappointingly last Saturday. The defeat to Gainsborough Trinity ended a run of seven unbeaten cup ties at The Racecourse, and that last defeat was to a Football League club: Oxford United beat us 2-1 in December 2013 in the FA Cup despite Joe Clarke … Continue reading PREVIEW: Wrexham AFC v Barrow AFC

All content in the column (c) http://www.leaderlive.co.uk. We face Aldershot tomorrow eagerly chasing early season points, but at least we can take comfort in the knowledge that our visitors from Hampshire have never relished … Continue reading PREVIEW: Wrexham FC v Aldershot Town
