Barrow Makes Sense For Wrexham AFC

Meet the new boss; same as the old boss. That seems to be how a lot of Wrexham fans have greeted the appointment of Graham Barrow, but I don’t think they’re right. Clearly the club evaluated other options, which might be interesting indicators of our future targets.

What Beating Boston Taught Us About Life

Boston’s last match at Wrexham left a question in my mind. What’s the point of football? It felt like one of the biggest games in our history, and I suppose it was at the time.

Remember, this is a … Continue reading >Conference Won’t Let Us Mess Around
