Keates Has Earned His Shot at Next Season

In this most turbulent of season, with so much still to be decided, one thing seems clear to me: Dean Keates has more than earned the right to construct a side over the Summer with the increased cash which our new owners will make available. His side has shown resilience and resourcefulness in the face of a multitude of challenges, and Keates has reshaped it … Continue reading Keates Has Earned His Shot at Next Season

5 Questions Before Woking v Wrexham AFC

Can we play three at the back without Pearson? With Shaun Pearson suspended, will Brian Flynn persist with three at the back? You suspect he will, but losing the skipper tears a big hole in the heart of our defence. But who replaces the big man? Michael Chambers is the obvious call, although Doug Tharme might feel it’s about time he got his opportunity. Tharme … Continue reading 5 Questions Before Woking v Wrexham AFC

Let’s Drop Three At The Back And Move On

Last Saturday’s game against Ayr United was, inevitably, an odd affair, but surprisingly enjoyable nonetheless. It might turn out to be much more significant than you’d expect, too, if it leads to the definitive ditching of our three-at-the-back experiment. In my first column of the season I admitted that I wasn’t keen on the 3-4-2-1 formation we trialed extensively throughout pre-season, and watching us start … Continue reading Let’s Drop Three At The Back And Move On

Wrexham AFC’s Season Is In Devonté Redmond’s Hands

I can’t tell you how happy I was to see Devonté Redmond nail that superb goal at Meadow Lane last Sunday. I was happy to see the amazing army of travelling fans rewarded for their efforts (after all, we got one point out of eighteen from the occasions last season when we took over 900 fans away, scoring just 2 goals in 6 games in the … Continue reading Wrexham AFC’s Season Is In Devonté Redmond’s Hands

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
