A Wrexham side in turmoil at least has a chance to set things straight tomorrow against a side which has enjoyed its visits to The Racecourse. Our … Continue reading PREVIEW: Wrexham FC v Alfreton Town
There are plenty of people looking for a reason to crucify Wrexham now. This wasn’t it. On the face of it was the sort of game which will disturb fans. Defeat to a small club that struggles to get a decent attendance seems pretty drastic. However, if you just concentrate on the facts a very different picture emerges. This was Alfreton’s fifth win on the … Continue reading Alfreton Town 1 Wrexham 0

I think Andy Morrell did very good business in the week, tying Jay Harris to a new contract and drafting in Dele Adebole and David Artell. The loan duo will add muscle and experience to the squad for the run-in, and at Conference level … Continue reading The Adebola Theory

This victory was straight from the Dean Saunders manual, and Morrell admitted as much afterwards. How could it be otherwise when he had just one day to prepare his team after the job landed in his lap out of the … Continue reading Tactical Report: 24th September 2011 Grimsby Town 1 Wrexham 3 Blue Square Bet Premier

They lost 3-1 at home to Altrincham on Saturday; he deflected in the first, was guilty of a howler to give away the second and was given a rating of four out of ten by the Non League Paper. Ouch! It must be something of a nightmare for him. … Continue reading >Poor Old Kempson!
