Things are looking up for Wrexham at Dagenham. We started horribly at Victoria Road, losing our first two matches there 3-0. In fact we went 450 minutes against The Daggers before finally scoring past them, in injury time at the end of our fifth match against them. Even then, that was an own goal, but significantly it earned us a 1-0 win, which was obviously … Continue reading Preview | Dagenham & Redbridge v Wrexham AFC

Each day there’ll be a poll for a different position – after you’ve voted for each position your XI will be revealed. Who will you pick in Wrexham’s best National League Midfield?

Awards season is upon us, and it’s appropriate to look back at the players who have made the greatest contribution to our promotion challenge, and are therefore in contention for the Player of the Season award. For me, it’s hard to look beyond Shaun Pearson. Last year he rightly won the award as a consequence of his leadership and fierce defending, and this season he … Continue reading Who Will Be Wrexham AFC’s Player of the Season?

If we ever needed a strong mentality, it’s today. Last Tuesday’s defeat was a spectacular blow. It wasn’t just that we lost: it was the devastating manner in which we collapsed. Amazingly, as we kicked off we hadn’t let in a goal at home in the first half of a match all season. Indeed, we hadn’t conceded a home goal in open play before the … Continue reading Time To Roll Our Sleeves Up
Today’s huge match will revolve around so many duels: Bonne against Wrexham’s stubborn defence; Tollitt trying to get behind Ling and pull Ekpiteta out of the middle; Wright trying to force McAnuff into deeper areas than he wants to be. However, perhaps the key clash will be between two players signed on loan by Sam Ricketts; one whose form makes him barely recognisable to Wrexham … Continue reading Walker Versus Maguire-Drew the Key to Leyton Orient v Wrexham AFC
It took me a few moments to recognise that old friend last Saturday. There was fog on the Tyne that morning as I crossed it on the Metro, but that’s not why I failed to realise what was right before me. It was just the shock of seeing those familiar features in a new context. But after an incredulous few seconds I realised I wasn’t … Continue reading Welcoming Back An Old Friend
Wrexham end a run of six away games without a goal, which equals the club record. Shaun Pearson’s goal was Wrexham’s first away goal since Brad Walker scored at Maidstone in November. First time Wrexham have conceded first and gone on to win since October 2017 against Eastleigh. Bryan Hughes is the first Wrexham manager to win his first two games since Dean Saunders (October … Continue reading #WxmAnorak Havant & Waterlooville 2 Wrexham AFC 3
Our record against Dagenham and Redbridge has improved dramatically of late as we’ve won our last two away games against them, but now we need to address matters closer to home, as we’ve never beaten The Daggers at The Racecourse. Their first visit to North Wales, in March 2008, ended in a goalless draw, and was seen as a missed opportunity for Brian Little’s side, … Continue reading Wrexham AFC Need a First Home Win Over Dagenham & Redbridge
Okay, so we’ve tried three at the back. Can we put it back in its box now? I’m not convinced the Orient game was the right point to experiment, and I don’t particularly feel that we need to search for a Plan B. In general, when fans and the media in Britain talk about a Plan B, it tends to be shorthand for something drastic: … Continue reading Back Three Plan B’s Not For Me
We’re still getting to know our new manager, but we learned something interesting about him this week: he likes to get his transfer business done early. There are certainly no flies on Graham Barrow when it comes to sorting out his signings. Within a week of the transfer window opening he’d drafted in two new strikers, converted a loan into a permanent deal and made … Continue reading How Scoring Five Can Show You Need More Cutting Edge
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. However, those deals all had practical drawbacks, while the appointment of Barrow is simple, ensures the squad have … Continue reading Barrow Makes Sense For Wrexham AFC
Is Brad Walker the new Danny Williams? The similarities between the on-loan Crewe player and Williams, a Wrexham stalwart of the first decade of the century, are obvious. Big, strong and able to either play as a centre back or in front of the defence, both players have the attributes necessary to help a side battle its way through a season in the lower divisions. … Continue reading Is Brad Walker the new Danny Williams?
