PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v Torquay United

Tomorrow is Dean Keates’ hundredth game as Wrexham manager. He’s the sixteenth person to reach that milestone, and boasts the fifth best league loss percentage in our history. Keates is only the second person to have two spells as our boss, and is enjoying considerably more success than the other one. Billy Morris was in the Racecourse hot seat twice in the early 1960s, but … Continue reading PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v Torquay United

After all, he’s big and strong, … Continue reading Jordan White Gives Dean Keates a Nudge
