PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v Eastleigh

I’m sure you won’t need to be reminded of what happened the last time Eastleigh visited The Racecourse. A traumatic home defeat in the National League play-offs ended our season in controversial circumstances, as we conceded the only goal in extra time after a hotly-contested decision to disallow a Kieran Kennedy goal which would have won the game in normal time. Ironically, that defeat came … Continue reading PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v Eastleigh

PREVIEW | Yeovil Town v Wrexham AFC

We’ve only faced Yeovil Town twice, but both occasions were packed with goals. Unfortunately, in our only trip to Huish Park it was the home team who provided most of them! We travelled to Somerset in November 2003 for a first round FA Cup match, and took a real beating. We were 4-0 down after an hour and ended up losing 4-1, with. Chris Armstrong … Continue reading PREVIEW | Yeovil Town v Wrexham AFC

PREVIEW | Bromley v Wrexham AFC

Last Saturday’s postponement means that Dean Keates’ 100th game as Wrexham manager comes today, against the side he beat to earn his first win as manager. Bromley were the visitors to The Racecourse when goals from Shaun Harrad and Gerry McDonagh earned a 2-1 home win in October 2016. However, our record at Hayes Lane could do with some improvement. Luke Young’s 77th minute winner … Continue reading PREVIEW | Bromley v Wrexham AFC

PREVIEW | Harrogate Town v Wrexham AFC

Harrogate’s artificial turf hasn’t offered them any particular advantage against us. We’ve visited them twice, both last season, and played out a goalless draw on each occasion. Harrogate’s game at The Racecourse last October – the first game of Dean Keates’ second spell as manager, saw them snatch a draw thanks to an 81st minute equalizer. We lost our first match against Harrogate when Keates … Continue reading PREVIEW | Harrogate Town v Wrexham AFC

Luke Summerfield and the Pursuit of Perfection

If Luke Summerfield had headed in a late fourth for Wrexham last Saturday he’d have capped a perfect day with a perfect hat trick. (I’m sure a perfect hat trick hasn’t been a thing until recently, but it’s been an answer on “Pointless” now, so it’s official!) Whatever part of his anatomy would have stuck in his theoretical third doesn’t matter though: the thing is, … Continue reading Luke Summerfield and the Pursuit of Perfection
