Losing Shaun Pearson, Mark Carrington, Jay Harris and Paul Rutherford meant four of the eight players with the most appearances in the National League for Wrexham left the club in the space of three days. In a series of articles, let’s take a look back at the final campaigns of these old warhorses. For months it looked like the nightmare 2020-21 season would be particularly … Continue reading Dragonhearts | There’s No Man Like Carra
If you’re a Wrexham fan you’ll have been brought up to believe a lot of “truths” about the club: we always lose on TV, and on artificial pitches; in the Good Old Days we always got five-figure crowds for home games; we don’t really want to go up (that’s a bizarrely persistent one!); and we always do badly against sides at the bottom of the … Continue reading Do Wrexham’s old players always score past us?
Last season our top scorers managed the lowest total in Wrexham AFC’s history, sharing 6 goals each. Here’s a look at all our top scorers in the National League. Continue reading Wrexham’s Top Scorers in the National League
So this is the Wrexham side you voted for as our best eleven from the National League years. I was planning to write about the side I picked and why it’s different from the one which the polls returned, but actually, I only disagree over one position, and even then I’m a little reluctant about it! The one difference I voted for was in attack. … Continue reading Wrexham’s National League XI | Did We Pick The Right Side?
So who did you vote into Wrexham’s National League XI? You’ve had your say, and after over 1,500 votes, here is your decision. GOALKEEPER Chris Maxwell 48% Rob Lainton 42% Joslain Mayebi 4% A two-horse race, but Chris Maxwell’s two successful seasons edged out last season’s player of the season.

Our record against Harrogate Town picked up dramatically when Akil Wright scored past them in our FA Cup qualifying round replay last October. Until that point we’d played 332 minutes against them and never scored. Luke Young added a second to secure our place in the first round. (No highlights are available due to FA restrictions – here’s the podcast!) Previously we’d travelled to Wetherby … Continue reading Wrexham AFC Look To End On A High Note
Despite their status as a yo-yo club, bouncing between the National League and the National League South, Braintree Town have an impressive record at The Racecourse. In fact, they arrive today looking to secure a third consecutive win in North Wales, and have an impressive record of three wins in six games in our back yard. They beat us 1-0 at home in November 2016, … Continue reading Wrexham AFC Must End Braintree’s Racecourse Run
Tomorrow’s game is a step into the unknown, as we’ve never played Weston Super Mare before, and it’s also an unfamiliar feeling to be enjoying an FA Cup run, even if it’s only in an embryonic state. Our replay victory over Harrogate in the last round ended the longest run of FA Cup matches in the club’s history without a win. We’d gone six matches, … Continue reading First Round Memories
Dean Keates takes his side to Braintree looking to follow up his first away win as manager, at Solihull Moors last Saturday. If he can repeat the feat it’ll be the first time we won back-to-back away games since December 2015 when the 4-2 win at Tranmere was actually our fourth in succession on the road. After a decent start, our record at Braintree has … Continue reading PREVIEW: Braintree Town v Wrexham AFC
Last season saw us stop the rot against Braintree, as our home results against them had got gradually worse after a promising start. Their first trip to The Racecourse certainly went according to plan. Andy Morrell, Adrian Cieslewicz, Mathias Pogba, Danny Wright and Neil Ashton all scored in a spectacular 5-1 win, Ashton’s injury time penalty being his first goal for Wrexham. The Iron next … Continue reading PREVIEW Wrexham AFC v Braintree Town
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. We need to turn things around tonight because our trips to Braintree have become progressively more depressing as time has passed! Our first trip to the Amlin … Continue reading PREVIEW Braintree Town v Wrexham AFC
