Leader Preview: Grimsby Town v Wrexham FC

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. It seems strange to go to Grimsby without Andy Morrell tomorrow, as some his most memorable moments in management came against them. Of course, his first trophy … Continue reading Leader Preview: Grimsby Town v Wrexham FC

Reynolds’ Selection Tonight Opens Doors For Others

I’m not surprised to see Danny Reynolds enjoy some involvement in the first team at Braintree. In fact, after watching him play in Wrexham’s Youth Cup run earlier this season, I was anticipating it sooner or later. As you can see below, I was impressed with him when I wrote about the cup run earlier this season: The main scorer in our FA Youth Cup … Continue reading Reynolds’ Selection Tonight Opens Doors For Others

Wrexham 0 Kidderminster Harriers 0

I was spitting feathers for the last quarter of an hour of this match, and a good while afterwards, which isn’t like me. That’s the thing about miscarriages of justice: they wind folk up. Andy Bishop’s second red card against Kidderminster this season was similar in some ways to what happened at Aggborough, as he was wound up once more by a very provocative Harriers … Continue reading Wrexham 0 Kidderminster Harriers 0

Carrington’s The Key for Wrexham FC

Whoever takes over the Racecourse hotseat will have one very obvious major task to crack on with: convincing Mark Carrington to sign a new contract. Whatever shape the new Wrexham side takes, clearly it will benefit if he’s a part of it. What part is difficult to say. Carrington gives the lie to the phrase “jack of all trades, master of none” by looking equally … Continue reading Carrington’s The Key for Wrexham FC

Hereford United 0 Wrexham 2

Turns out 4-4-2 is the answer after all then! Billy Barr made bold changes to his team, switched around the formation and was rewarded with a result which was a tonic after last Tuesday. Most notably, he cracked the 4-4-2 conundrum, playing Mark Carrington high on the right. He and Johnny Hunt on the left would give a perfect illustration of the roles wide midfielders … Continue reading Hereford United 0 Wrexham 2

Luton Town 5 Wrexham FC 0

The anti-Morrell brigade were desperate for him to go so Wrexham could have a change of fortune. Well, here it is. Wrexham never conceded five goals in a game under Morrell, and never conceded four in an away game. While claiming this result was solely down to his departure yesterday would be specious, it would also be naive to suggest that such a collapse had … Continue reading Luton Town 5 Wrexham FC 0

Alfreton Town FC v Wrexham FC Preview

Who will step up to the plate and make themselves a hero tomorrow? If the previous pattern is followed, then somebody will, as both our games at The Impact Arena have ended in victory and been memorable for some notable individual feats. Our first visit there came back in August 2011 and Alfreton, newly promoted to the fifth tier of English football for the first … Continue reading Alfreton Town FC v Wrexham FC Preview
