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

PREVIEW: Wrexham AFC v Torquay United

Our recent from against Torquay is solid, with five wins and just two defeats in our last twelve clashes. We won the last two times The Gulls travelled to North Wales. Last season we trailled at the break in our first home game of the season, but goals from Dom Vose, Connor Jennings and James Grey sealed a 3-1 win. Six months earlier we beat … Continue reading PREVIEW: Wrexham AFC v Torquay United

Let’s Keep The Momentum Rolling

Wrexham are currently enjoying their longest unbeaten run against Newport County. Let’s hope they keep it going for one more game! We haven’t lost in six matches against our South Walian opponents. In fact, if Wrexham avoid defeat we’ll equal the longest unbeaten run we’ve ever enjoyed against Newport by going five games without losing to County. Overall, in forty-one matches we’ve tended to have … Continue reading Let’s Keep The Momentum Rolling

Maxwell’s Return Reflects Well On Both Him And Morrell

They say you should never go back, and in general I fully subscribe to that theory. Thank goodness Chris Maxwell doesn’t though: he could be the exception that proves the rule. Generally, going back to the scene of your greatest successes is fraught with danger. Expectations are too high, players are often older and a little over the hill when they rerurn, and it just … Continue reading Maxwell’s Return Reflects Well On Both Him And Morrell
