Chasing the Dream

It was on platform one of Carmarthen station at 8:01 am that I left to watch my last Wrexham game at the Racecourse for who knows when, the idea of going months without going is an inconceivable thought. A place I’ve based my life around for the last four years will suddenly be no more as the nearest I’ll have to the Racecourse will be Cheltenham … Continue reading Chasing the Dream

Wilkin is the Strong Silent Type Wrexham FC Need

So Kevin Wilkin it is then! I’d love to make out I had some inside knowledge, but I must say that the board played their cards impressively close to their chests throughout this process. My attempts to put two and two together and assume Micky Mellon was the man after he left Barnsley yesterday merely taught me that speculation is never a wise idea! Wilkin’s … Continue reading Wilkin is the Strong Silent Type Wrexham FC Need

A tale of screamers, elation, despair…. and Aggborough Pies!

Better late than never I suppose! My review of the 2012/13 season comes a bit later than Mark Griffiths’ but I personally blame A-levels! A tremendous season in terms of emotion and action for Wrexham, but also the most heartbreaking since that game at Hereford back in 2008 where Wrexham condemned to the league they very nearly escaped at the third attempt at Wembley. I’ll … Continue reading A tale of screamers, elation, despair…. and Aggborough Pies!

End of Term Report Part Four

The defence stood up to scrutiny last season, but how did the engine room fare? Midfielders Dean Keates Once again, the skipper ran through the pain barrier for the club and he remains a totemic figure in the centre of the pitch. At the heart of everything, he sets the passing tempo and leads from the front, playing with a fire which complements Jay Harris’ … Continue reading End of Term Report Part Four

Morrell’s Balancing Act Between Quality and Strength in Depth

Ever since we dropped into the Conference this part of the year has seemed particularly fraught and crucial. Talk of a retained list seems irrelevant: the issue isn’t who we want to keep, but who we can manage to hang onto. Danny Wright has departed already, and the likes of Martin Riley and Dean Keates are surely crucial to the spine of next season’s side. … Continue reading Morrell’s Balancing Act Between Quality and Strength in Depth
