Lights, Camera, Wrexham

Remember the days when a Wrexham game on television was a precious, rare experience? An occasion which merited changing into your best clothes as if you’d just managed your team to the cup final on Football Manager? In this age of multi-channel options and the fragmentation of sports rights, with an increasing number of subscription sports channels looking to fill their schedules with content, seeing … Continue reading Lights, Camera, Wrexham

PREVIEW: Dover Athletic v Wrexham AFC

Four times we’ve undertaken the long trip to Dover, the most distant domestic opponents in our history, and have only returned unbeaten once. That happy occasion was in February 2017, and even then the point we earned came about in rather fortunate circumstances. We were trailing 1-0 with ten minutes left when a deflection in the goalmouth hit Jordan White on the backside and ricocheted … Continue reading PREVIEW: Dover Athletic v Wrexham AFC

PREVIEW: Aldershot Town v Wrexham AFC

Gary Mills’ loan signings tend to be like Donald Trump’s sense of humility: seldom seen, to the point where you begin to wonder if they ever existed in the first place. Gerry McDonagh might be the man to buck that trend. Certainly, his crucial intervention on Tuesday offered hope that he might be the man to spearhead our attack in the absence of the unfortunate … Continue reading PREVIEW: Aldershot Town v Wrexham AFC

PREVIEW: Wrexham AFC v Gateshead FC

It’s a big day for Gary Mills tomorrow as he faces his old side. Mills spent two seasons at Gateshead, taking charge of 103 games, and he had a variable record in this fixture. Two seasons ago his encounters with Wrexham turned out to be a wash out. When we met at the Gateshead International Stadium in September 2013 the visitors took a decisive grip … Continue reading PREVIEW: Wrexham AFC v Gateshead FC

PREVIEW: Wrexham AFC v Barrow AFC

Wrexham need to get back to winning ways in the league after seeing their interest in the FA Cup end so disappointingly last Saturday. The defeat to Gainsborough Trinity ended a run of seven unbeaten cup ties at The Racecourse, and that last defeat was to a Football League club: Oxford United beat us 2-1 in December 2013 in the FA Cup despite Joe Clarke … Continue reading PREVIEW: Wrexham AFC v Barrow AFC

What’s in a street name?

While pottering around town last week, as you do, I started to be irritated by something. Any reasonable person would be irritated by rational matters: having your car clamped; waiting in a queue; or having your car clamped while waiting in a queue. For me, the source of my annoyance was much more trivial. I was irritated by Wrexham’s street names. An estate off Holt … Continue reading What’s in a street name?

All content in the column (c) http://www.leaderlive.co.uk. Last Monday Jamie Redknapp, showing the level of analysis we’ve come to expect from him, hailed Danny Welbeck as the signing of the century after he’d scored … Continue reading In Moult We Trust

Here’s my column from last week’s Leader.
