The Wrexham AFC Bring Your Son To Work XI

With the signing of Devonte Redmond, Paul Edwards’ son, today, I thought it might be interesting to compile an XI of Wrexham players whose fathers also represented the club. It wasn’t easy – Redmond is joining a very select band – and frankly this side wouldn’t function very well if it could somehow be put on the pitch: Wrexham players don’t seem to pass attacking … Continue reading The Wrexham AFC Bring Your Son To Work XI

Wrexham AFC Need A Reversal of Fortune V Leyton Orient

We travel to London hoping our newfound goal threat will end a barren run against Leyton Orient. We haven’t scored past them in three matches, our longest goalless run in this fixture. We also haven’t beaten them in six matches, which represents our worst sequence of winless games against The Os. However, our last victory over them was a memorable one: in April 2003, Andy … Continue reading Wrexham AFC Need A Reversal of Fortune V Leyton Orient

Wrexham’s Greatest FA Cup XI

It’s wonderful to see Wrexham rediscovering our FA Cup form and reminding us all of the remarkable pedigree we’ve enjoyed in this competition. When we drew at Harrogate in this season’s qualifying round, we set a club record for the most games without a win in the FA Cup. Since then we’ve rediscovered our winning ways, and now approach an opportunity to add a cup … Continue reading Wrexham’s Greatest FA Cup XI

PREVIEW: Torquay United v Wrexham AFC

It’s a long trip to Torquay, but at least we’ll have memories of what happened there last season to keep us going! Our last trip to Plainmoor was the most memorable we’ve made, of course. We travelled there for the second leg of the FA Trophy semi-final with a place at Wembley at stake and a 2-1 first leg lead in our pocket. There was … Continue reading PREVIEW: Torquay United v Wrexham AFC

Kevin’s Big Day

Each manager needs his defining moment. On the anniversary of Wrexham’s victory over Arsenal, could Kevin Wilkin be on the verge of his?

The Forgotten Miracle

With the Stoke game upon us it’s natural to look back at great giant-killings in our long history, and we’ve seen plenty of coverage of our 1992 victory over Arsenal as a consequence. A remarkable FA Cup third round victory from ten years earlier seems to have been neglected though. Have we really forgotten the day we beat Brian Clough’s greatest side on their own … Continue reading The Forgotten Miracle
