PREVIEW: Southport FC v Wrexham AFC

Here’s my column from last week’s Leader.

All content in the column (c) http://www.leaderlive.co.uk. If it’s January, it must be Southport.

Wrexham FC’s Record on Boxing Day

We defend a remarkable Boxing Day record at Haig Avenue tomorrow, as we haven’t lost an away game on the day after Christmas for twenty three years! The last time we missed out on our turkey sandwiches for nothing was in 1991, when we travelled to Edgar Street to face Hereford United. We fell behind within the first ten minutes but Gordon Davies equalised shortly … Continue reading Wrexham FC’s Record on Boxing Day

The Contract, Still Intact

“The grabbing hands, grab all they can, all for themselves, after all it’s a competitive world” -Depeche Mode Contract Law has not been a friend of Wrexham FC in recent years, and I’m quaking in my boots after several previous significant setbacks.  I’m not made happier by news such as ‘Keates shakes hands on new deal’ or ‘player asks for more time to consider his options’. … Continue reading The Contract, Still Intact

Wilkin is the Strong Silent Type Wrexham FC Need

So Kevin Wilkin it is then! I’d love to make out I had some inside knowledge, but I must say that the board played their cards impressively close to their chests throughout this process. My attempts to put two and two together and assume Micky Mellon was the man after he left Barnsley yesterday merely taught me that speculation is never a wise idea! Wilkin’s … Continue reading Wilkin is the Strong Silent Type Wrexham FC Need

Things Are Looking Up For The Reds

January, a new start for Wrexham as they aimed to change their poor season which began a whole six months ago. A disappointing mid-table position with some saying relegation was a possibility which, though I couldn’t see it myself, looked like a plausible opinion. But surely not? Surely the Wrexham that won the FA Trophy and were in the Play-Off final no longer than 10 … Continue reading Things Are Looking Up For The Reds

The One Battle The Beast Couldn’t Win

You could see how prepared the TV news channels are for the inevitable this month. When the one modern figure who will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with history’s greats died in Johannesburg, they were ready to run the hours of video tributes they’d salted away years ago in readiness for the sad event. I feel I ought to have been equally ready to report on today’s unfortunate … Continue reading The One Battle The Beast Couldn’t Win

Wrexham 3 Alfreton Town 1 – FA Cup 1st Round

Never mind parking the bus: getting it to the ground was a problem for Alfreton. Their performance was so far below par for most of the match that they might have wished the driver had turned tail and headed home. Much of the game felt like an object lesson in why the traditional  role for 4-4-2 has become obsolete as Alfreton played with three flat … Continue reading Wrexham 3 Alfreton Town 1 – FA Cup 1st Round
