Wrexham’s National League XI | Did We Pick The Right Side?

So this is the Wrexham side you voted for as our best eleven from the National League years.  I was planning to write about the side I picked and why it’s different from the one which the polls returned, but actually, I only disagree over one position, and even then I’m a little reluctant about it! The one difference I voted for was in attack. … Continue reading Wrexham’s National League XI | Did We Pick The Right Side?
