The reunion of Jay Harris and Dean Keates, the fierce heart of Wrexham’s best side since we were demoted from League One, has finally happened.

Morrell and Carrington will be the only Wrexham players to have reached this milestone who have appeared in the National League, and Carrington is the first Wrexham … Continue reading 250 Up For Mark Carrington
So this is the Wrexham side you voted for as our best eleven from the National League years. I was planning to write about the side I picked and why it’s different from the one which the polls returned, but actually, I only disagree over one position, and even then I’m a little reluctant about it! The one difference I voted for was in attack. … Continue reading Wrexham’s National League XI | Did We Pick The Right Side?

Despite their status as a yo-yo club, bouncing between the National League and the National League South, Braintree Town have an impressive record at The Racecourse. In fact, they arrive today looking to secure a third consecutive win in North Wales, and have an impressive record of three wins in six games in our back yard.

We finally ended our dreadful run against Dover Athletic on the first day of the season when we managed to beat for the first time at the ninth attempt. Today, we go in search of a first home victory over The Whites. Our last two home games against Dover were goalless draws, and the year before that saw them emerge with a 1-0 win.

Loyalty earns you a rather less … Continue reading The Admirable Carrington
