#WxmAnorak | Wrexham 1 Maidstone United 0

Rob Lainton set a club record for most league clean sheets kept in a season by a Wrexham goalkeeper. Yesterday was his 20th league clean sheet of the season, overtaking Brian Lloyd (1973-4). First time Wrexham have won consecutive home games against Maidstone United. Wrexham’s first home league crowd below 4,000 this season. Nicky Deverdics last completed 90 minutes in a league game in February … Continue reading #WxmAnorak | Wrexham 1 Maidstone United 0

Wrexham AFC Need A Win Against Maidstone United

With just one win in five against Maidstone, we urgently need to improve our form against The Stones. That sole victory came last season, as Shaun Pearson’s late header clinched a scrappy victory. It turned out to be the only one we managed in nine games under Andy Davies and Carl Darlington as our promotion hopes slipped away. The previous season they enjoyed their first … Continue reading Wrexham AFC Need A Win Against Maidstone United

No More Madness at Maidstone Please!

Let’s hope there’s no repeat today of our last trip to Maidstone, when the referee took centre stage. Sam Allison’s erratic performance had a massive influence on a day when almost everything went wrong for Wrexham. Our problems began before the match when Chris Dunn injured himself in the pre-match warm-up, so Christian Dibble was dramatically thrust into his Wrexham debut. Despite the disruption, we … Continue reading No More Madness at Maidstone Please!

York v Wrexham: A Classic Tale of Redemption

Let me tell you about last Easter weekend. It’s an uplifting tale, not quite “Peter Kay’s Car Share”, but up there in terms of feel good stories. It’s the story of how every little thing turned out alright – our own redemption song. Clearly there was a need for redemption for the entire squad after seven games without a win, culminating in a home defeat … Continue reading York v Wrexham: A Classic Tale of Redemption

PREVIEW Wrexham AFC v Maidstone United

We’re unbeaten in seven matches against Maidstone United. We lost there the first time we played them, back in 1989, and since then have beaten them four times and managed three draws. We’ve enjoyed two emphatic home wins over The Stones. Their last trip to The Racecourse was an FA Cup second round tie in December 2014, when a rare Manny Smith goal gave us … Continue reading PREVIEW Wrexham AFC v Maidstone United

Stoke City: the club that keep on giving

What fortunate timing! Good job we had to  ask Stoke to let us keep Dan Bachmann before we play them in the cup. If we’d asked them after our glorious 4-0 victory they might not have been in such a charitable mood! Stoke are the gift that keeps on giving this Christmas! Bachmann’s presence is clearly crucial if we’re to achieve anything this season, and … Continue reading Stoke City: the club that keep on giving

TACTICAL REPORT: Wrexham 3 Maidstone Utd 1

Flisher, Bodkin and York sounds like a Dickensian firm of lawyers to me (WARNING: a list of three footballers’ names always sounds like a Dickensian law firm to me. Except Sakho, Obeng and Ugarte.) However, Alex Flisher, Matt Bodkin and Wes York were actually the decisive players in this superbly well-contested second round cup tie. So often a cup tie is determined by the superior … Continue reading TACTICAL REPORT: Wrexham 3 Maidstone Utd 1
