Do Wrexham’s old players always score past us?

If you’re a Wrexham fan you’ll have been brought up to believe a lot of “truths” about the club: we always lose on TV, and on artificial pitches; in the Good Old Days we always got five-figure crowds for home games; we don’t really want to go up (that’s a bizarrely persistent one!); and we always do badly against sides at the bottom of the … Continue reading Do Wrexham’s old players always score past us?

Hall-Johnson Brings Back the Good Times

The screaming in the front room brought my wife downstairs to see what was going on. And that was just for the equaliser. It might have only been mid-December, but Christmas came early in our house this year. There’s nothing like a late winner, and it’s an unfamiliar sensation for Wrexham fans. We’ve been starved of that fantastic rush which comes with pinching a result … Continue reading Hall-Johnson Brings Back the Good Times

Preview | Borehamwood v Wrexham AFC

Wrexham will be looking to defend a remarkable record at Borehamwood tonight. Our record against them stands in stark contrast to how we’ve done against next Saturday’s opponents, Dover. In eight clashes we’ve won seven, the only time we’ve failed to beat them being when we lost to a highly dubious penalty at The Racecourse two seasons ago. Last season we enjoyed our best season … Continue reading Preview | Borehamwood v Wrexham AFC

1-0 at Borehamwood Again Please

Luke Young’s goal last Saturday brought some relief as we ended our goalless run at five matches, although that is the third longest barren streak in the club’s history. However, we go into today’s match having already equalled an unwanted club record. Our last away goal was back in November, when Brad Walker’s massively deflected shot at Maidstone earned us a point. Since then we’ve … Continue reading 1-0 at Borehamwood Again Please

PREVIEW Wrexham AFC v Borehamwood

Until last season, our record against Borehamwood had a very pleasing symmetry to it. We’d played them five times, and won each encounter. Furthermore, they’d only managed one goal against us, and that was a penalty, as we racked up four 1-0 wins. Last April that all changed in a bad tempered and controversial match. Manny Smith was harshly judged to have pushed his man … Continue reading PREVIEW Wrexham AFC v Borehamwood
