Do Go Chasing Waterfall

So we’ve signed a centre back, “the immovable water feature” as he’ll be known from now on. Obviously we all need to reserve judgement until he’s settled in, but my recollection of his performance against us for Gainsborough Trinity in the FA Trophy semi-final is positive and he’s certainly the right sort of signing for our current situation. Ever since the season started I’d felt … Continue reading Do Go Chasing Waterfall

Carlos Edwards set up a goal last week; John Ruddy continues to carve out a … Continue reading Walker Flourishes on S4C

Emad Bouanane: The Ultimate Cult Hero

If you look up “cult hero” in a dictionary, there’s no definition: just a picture of Emad Bouanane. Could anybody, in the long history of this football club, have encapsulated the notion of a cult hero quite as succinctly as Emad?

Mark McGregor, As Quietly Impressive As Ever

While Andy Morrell is naturally at the forefront of our minds, there’s another player who gave terrific service in a Wrexham shirt on the verge of a genuine achievement in the early days of his managerial career. Mark McGregor was one of the best young discoveries of Brian Flynn’s long reign at The Racecourse, and he could pull off an impressive coup in the Welsh … Continue reading Mark McGregor, As Quietly Impressive As Ever
