We come into today’s match in horrible form, on our worst losing streak since January 2016 and failing to score in five straight games for the first time since April 2009. Defeat to Maidenhead would mean we’d lost six games consecutively for the first time since January 2008, when we suffered an eight-match losing streak. If we fail to score today it’ll be our worst … Continue reading Unwanted History Approaches
We might enjoy a rarity today: a full-strength Wrexham side in a cup tie! Of course, it’s not easy to put your finger on exactly what a full-strength Wrexham team is this season. Sam Ricketts’ policy of rotation has rather done away with the conventional notion of having a strongest eleven which the rest of the squad must fight to get into, and we ought … Continue reading Up For The Cup!
Inevitably, the focus at a football club is on the first team, and this season is no different as we hope Sam Ricketts’ side can make a sustained push for promotion. But there’s more than one first team at Wrexham AFC this season. Even in the context of this ancient club’s history, what’s happening is a game changer. We have a fully-affiliated Wrexham Women’s team … Continue reading Wrexham AFC Women Write a New Page in Our History
Mike Fondop is seriously challenging my preconceptions. He arrived with a National League record of 7 goals in 31 games, having been with Guiseley, who finished rock bottom of the table last season.

That seemed a popular opinion at the time, but … Continue reading Fondop Struck
Did you enjoy Mike Fondop’s rather clever overhead kick? Rob Lainton’s penalty save? Well, my favourite moment of the Dover game came in the eleventh minute. There’s some nice build-up play which ends with Kevin Roberts slinging a good cross to the far post, which the centre back Max Schmoll has to head behind for a corner. What I liked about it wasn’t the fluency … Continue reading 4-3-3 Offers More Threat

Here we go again! It’s said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over but expecting a different result, and I can’t help mulling that idea over as we start yet another attempt to get out of the National League. However, on this occasion, perhaps our greatest hope lies in repetition. We may have a new manager, but the season … Continue reading 2018-19 Wrexham AFC Season Preview
