50/50 for Wrexham at this point of the FA Trophy

Our record in the second round of the FA Trophy is rather mixed. In 10 previous seasons in the competition, we’ve reached this stage six times, and on three of those we’ve gone through to the next round. We’ve never lost at home in the second round, but having said that, we’ve never beaten a side from the same division as us at this stage … Continue reading 50/50 for Wrexham at this point of the FA Trophy

PREVIEW: Wrexham AFC v Tranmere Rovers

Tomorrow’s game represents an unwanted piece of club history for Tranmere Rovers as they line up for their first match in a competition no-one with a pedigree in the Football League wants to take part in. In Wrexham they’ll face a side which has a good pedigree in the FA Trophy. With a win in the trophy in 2013 and another visit to Wembley last … Continue reading PREVIEW: Wrexham AFC v Tranmere Rovers

So What did Last Saturday Actually Mean?

I’m confused. Going into last weekend’s excellent win over Barrow I was concerned by the direction this season was taking. Three points later and I’m looking at a league table which has us one point off the play-offs and wondering if I was right to be concerned in the first place. A closer examination of the table only makes it more pleasing. Three of the … Continue reading So What did Last Saturday Actually Mean?

PREVIEW: Torquay United v Wrexham AFC

It’s a long trip to Torquay, but at least we’ll have memories of what happened there last season to keep us going! Our last trip to Plainmoor was the most memorable we’ve made, of course. We travelled there for the second leg of the FA Trophy semi-final with a place at Wembley at stake and a 2-1 first leg lead in our pocket. There was … Continue reading PREVIEW: Torquay United v Wrexham AFC

What Do We Want…When Do We Want It?

Before home games I normally drop my Grandparents off at Cashconverters, which provides me with just enough money to get a seat behind the goal. It’s quite a cosy shop, or so my Grandparents tell me when I pick them up on payday. On the way to the ground it gives me a great thrill when Mark Griffiths (International Goalkeeper, etc ,etc , etc) waves … Continue reading What Do We Want…When Do We Want It?

When Kevin Went Shopping

There was a buzz before the Nuneaton game: this was our chance to see what Kevin Wilkin’s Wrexham side would look like next season! Surely, the logic ran, he’d hightail it straight back to his old club and cherry-pick all their best players. After watching the weak performance the visitors put in there was an a slight air of disappointment: was that what we could … Continue reading When Kevin Went Shopping

Kevin Wilkin Gets the Job – Wrexham FC Get Their Man

On January 10th  I wrote this – “Canny managers like Nicky Laws, Alan Devonshire and Kevin Wilkin (to name just a few) are doing their homework and working out what it takes to not only survive at this level but flourish too. Quite frankly, many of them seem to have worked out a way of frustrating footballing teams like Wrexham and picking up positive results.” When … Continue reading Kevin Wilkin Gets the Job – Wrexham FC Get Their Man
