Wrexham Take Their Best Shot

Our 2-0 win over Aldershot last October ended a run of three defeats against them, our worst sequence of consecutive losses in this fixture. Now we need to break the pattern of 2-0 defeats at The Recreation Ground – each of our last two trips there ended in that scoreline. Our last win at Aldershot was in November 2015 when Wes York’s second half goal … Continue reading Wrexham Take Their Best Shot

Wrexham’s Greatest FA Cup XI

It’s wonderful to see Wrexham rediscovering our FA Cup form and reminding us all of the remarkable pedigree we’ve enjoyed in this competition. When we drew at Harrogate in this season’s qualifying round, we set a club record for the most games without a win in the FA Cup. Since then we’ve rediscovered our winning ways, and now approach an opportunity to add a cup … Continue reading Wrexham’s Greatest FA Cup XI

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: Aldershot Town v Wrexham AFC

Gary Mills will be keen to maintain our good run of form tomorrow against Aldershot, an opponent we’ve tended to have the upper hand against in recent clashes. Since we reacquainted ourselves with The Shots in The Conference following their demise and return to the Football League we’ve had by far the better of things. Admittedly, things started badly as a trip to Aldershot in … Continue reading PREVIEW: Aldershot Town v Wrexham AFC

John Neal: One of Wrexham’s True Greats

All content in the column (c) http://www.leaderlive.co.uk. John Neal’s spell as manager of Wrexham between September 1968 and June 1977 marked a crucial era in the club’s history. Indeed, you could reasonably call him the father of the modern club, as it was he who established a reputation for developing youthful talent which would stand the club in good stead throughout the 1970s, while his … Continue reading John Neal: One of Wrexham’s True Greats
