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

5 Questions Before Wrexham AFC – Halifax Town

Can we do that “Fortress Racecourse” thing again? Our recent home record is magnificent. Discarding the Eastleigh defeat, partly because it was a play-off, partly because it just feels right, we’ve won our last five home league games, and eight out of the last nine. In fact, Halifax are the last side to return from The Racecourse with a league draw, in early September 2018: … Continue reading 5 Questions Before Wrexham AFC – Halifax Town
