Titanic II: Wrexham AFC v Stockport County

Well, what a way to prepare for a game like this! The Stockport County semi-final was always going to be an absolutely titanic clash as the first of two meetings between the outstanding sides in the National League. There’s only one team good enough to halt the Hatters, and that’s Wrexham. Nobody else has the quality to threaten to beat them to the league title, … Continue reading Titanic II: Wrexham AFC v Stockport County

Wrexham’s Incredible Travelling Army

The switch to a Friday night will have an impact, as will the granting of permission for us to stream the game live, but nevertheless, our FA Trophy game at Notts County will be played out in front of an impressive away support. You don’t need me to tell you that attendances have been utterly remarkable this season. We’ve attracted in excess of 7,500 fans … Continue reading Wrexham’s Incredible Travelling Army

The Trophy of Champions

It’s that time of year where the birds start to sing, the trees start to bloom and managers start to reconsider their attitude to the FA Trophy.

That means we could … Continue reading The Trophy of Champions

It’s a competition which, financially, brings little reward and attracts small crowds. A competition which leads to fixture disruption if you get to the … Continue reading Time For Phil Parkinson’s Trophy Tilt !

PREVIEW | Halifax Town v Wrexham AFC

Since reaching the 2015 FA Trophy final, we’ve failed to set the competition alight. Under Keates we fell at the first hurdle twice, losing at home to both Tranmere and Harrogate Town. Rovers’ win was revenge for the season before, when we won 4-2 at Prenton Park, thanks to goals by Manny Smith, Wes York, Dom Vose and Sean Newton, only to then lose 1-0 … Continue reading PREVIEW | Halifax Town v Wrexham AFC

Waiting For Sutton

Dean Keates takes charge of his 150th game as Wrexham manager across his two spells at the club today. Ironically, an FA Trophy match is the last fixture he’d want to have. The only priority this season is our league position, and while an FA Cup run could have yielded some handy cash for mid-season recruitment, the FA Trophy certainly doesn’t have such financial potential. … Continue reading Waiting For Sutton
