In a frustrating start to the season, where we’ve dropped late points in both our away games, there is at least the consolation that, even without last season’s player of the season, we haven’t fallen to pieces. I know we had to wait until last Tuesday to keep our first clean sheet of the season, and Rob Lainton won last season’s award for his calm … Continue reading Keep The Christian Faith
Over the next few days, you can pick the best XI to have represented Wrexham in the National League. Each day there’ll be a poll for a different position – after you’ve voted for each position your XI will be revealed. So who will you pick as the best goalkeeper of our National League years? Here’s the poll, and the National League appearance stats of … Continue reading VOTE | Wrexham AFC’s Best National League Goalkeeper
Wrexham will have made progress today if we could actually score past AFC Fylde today. We’ve played them four times, and are yet to get the ball past their goalkeeper! We hadn’t even met them until last season, but by the end of October we were heartily sick of the sight of them!

Furthermore, when a campaign has split itself into such diverse segments, it’s difficult to work out who to reward. The players Dean … Continue reading Who’s Your Player of the Season?
It came out of nowhere, but Curtis Tilt’s move to Forest Green, or at least somewhere, soon, was inevitable. Its timing might not be ideal, but for a deal we could hardly stop, it’ll turn out to be a good one for Wrexham. First things first: there was little the club could logically do except accept the offer. A piece of brinkmanship by Forest Green, … Continue reading The Departure of Curtis Tilt: Short Term Problem, Long Term Solution
