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. They beat us 1-0 at home in November 2016, … Continue reading Wrexham AFC Must End Braintree’s Racecourse Run
Dean Keates’ 25th game in charge sees us going in search of a third consecutive away win for the first time since December 2015. Having re-discovered the ability to win away from home, we now need to remember how to keep clean sheets on the road. Last March we emerged from The New Lawn with a 0-0 draw despite having both Blaine Hudson and Connor … Continue reading PREVIEW: Forest Green Rovers v Wrexham AFC

Two matches is a very small sample size so perhaps I should guard against getting carried away. However, our last two matches suggest that Jon Nolan has the capability to become that most rare of things – a successful loan signing. In fact, the current crop of loanees are shaping up quite well. James Caton looked sharp when he came on against Shrewsbury, and the … Continue reading Is Jon Nolan About to Break the Loan Jinx?
So, what do we have to do to convince Carl Darlington to take the job? Because frankly, I left Blundell Park wanting to see a lot more of the same! There was an uncomfortable feeling all season that Wrexham’s squad could be doing a lot better if better decisions had been made from the bench, not to mention a notion that there was no coincidence … Continue reading Where did it all go wrong?

When you watch Andy Bishop, do you see a league quality player, with a wholehearted approach, deft touch and the ability to finish? When Johnny Hunt played did you see an energetic, consistent footballer with great positional sense? When Brett Ormerod graced the Racecourse, did you sense a clever mind, utterly dedicated to the team ethic, playing for the love of the game? Or were … Continue reading The men who stare at goats
So who’s the most significant figure in recent Wrexham history? Kevin Wilkin? Dean Keates? Neil Ashton? How about Andy Bishop? His fortunes have perhaps shaped the last couple of years more than anyone else’s. At the start of last season Bishop’s signature represented more than just the completion of a transfer deal. He was the signing on whom Andy Morrell unwittingly staked his job. The … Continue reading Andy Bishop: Wrexham FC’s History Man
