Watch out for the Wrexham – Eastleigh teamsheet

There’s an obvious question to ask before today’s match with Eastleigh: is Andrew Boyce playing? Boyce has pulled off a remarkable, unwanted feat in this fixture, as he was sent off in each of our last two matches against The Spitfires! Last season he walked in the 67th minute of our 1-1 draw at Eastleigh, receiving a yellow card for a late tackle on Sam … Continue reading Watch out for the Wrexham – Eastleigh teamsheet

PREVIEW: Lincoln City v Wrexham AFC

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. Traditionally Lincoln is a place we tend to approach with trepidation, but in recent years we’ve done well at Sincil Bank. We came within seven minutes of … Continue reading PREVIEW: Lincoln City v Wrexham AFC

Are Diamonds Forever?

The January reshaping has been done, interesting new faces have been introduced, and now we see what Kevin Wilkin can achieve with them. January felt like a transitional month to me. We settled into a diamond formation which, I suspect, is not how Wilkin will want to proceed once the new men are bedded in.  Admittedly we have a lot of central midfielders to choose … Continue reading Are Diamonds Forever?

BALANCE SHEET: Stockport County v Wrexham FC

Positives: The second half. Our second goal! Ross White’s contribution, both defensively and bringing the ball out from the back. Louis Moult looked a level above anything else on the pitch. The overlapping of Neil Ashton and Mark Carrington in the second half stretched Stockport. Dean Keates back on the bench! As always, the work rate of Connor Jennings. In the midst of chaos, Jay … Continue reading BALANCE SHEET: Stockport County v Wrexham FC

Wrexham FC’s 2014 in Numbers

Nobody can claim that 2014 has been a vintage year on the pitch. Looking through the figures from the last twelve months perhaps reflects this: without consistent performances the statistics lead us toward some rather surprising conclusions. But first the facts: we played 54 games in 2014 and won 38% of them, losing 33%. Appropriately in a mediocre year, that’s pretty much mid-table form: in … Continue reading Wrexham FC’s 2014 in Numbers

This Is Good

We drew with an under strength Macclesfield. We made Wade Fairhurst, a striker rescued from a lower division, look like a world-beater, and our passing was nothing to write home about. So what’s good? I saw in this performance the makings of a well organised, well balanced, competitive team. Wilkin looks relaxed and cheery, I’m not surprised, he recognises when things are coming together nicely. … Continue reading This Is Good

Jamie’s Man of the Match against Eastleigh

It was certainly a fantastic victory over Eastleigh at the Racecourse Ground last Saturday, so someone out of the 11 squad should be named man of the match! It was great to be amongst Mark Griffiths and Alex Taylor in the commentary box throughout the 90 minutes witnessing the Dragons forget their Derby defeat to thrash Eastleigh by three goals. I was the summariser behind … Continue reading Jamie’s Man of the Match against Eastleigh
