Review: “Welcome to Wrexham”

“Welcome to Wrexham” was always going to be a game-changer. As I explained last week, that was always the intention: the exposure we receive should help us to expand exponentially as new fans are attracted to the club. After the US premiere of the show, the football club gained 6,000 followers on Twitter overnight. We still have top billing on the various streaming services which … Continue reading Review: “Welcome to Wrexham”

Hall-Johnson Brings Back the Good Times

The screaming in the front room brought my wife downstairs to see what was going on. And that was just for the equaliser. It might have only been mid-December, but Christmas came early in our house this year. There’s nothing like a late winner, and it’s an unfamiliar sensation for Wrexham fans. We’ve been starved of that fantastic rush which comes with pinching a result … Continue reading Hall-Johnson Brings Back the Good Times

PREVIEW | Yeovil Town v Wrexham AFC

We’ve only faced Yeovil Town twice, but both occasions were packed with goals. Unfortunately, in our only trip to Huish Park it was the home team who provided most of them! We travelled to Somerset in November 2003 for a first round FA Cup match, and took a real beating. We were 4-0 down after an hour and ended up losing 4-1, with. Chris Armstrong … Continue reading PREVIEW | Yeovil Town v Wrexham AFC

#WxmAnorak | Chesterfield 3 Wrexham AFC 2

Last time Wrexham were leading as late as the 72nd minute but lost: 10/8/19 Dover (h) 1-2 4th time this season that Wrexham have conceded in 90th minute or injury time (three were the winning goal, the other was an equaliser). Wrexham have scored twice in the 90th minute or later – both consolation goals in a defeat. Jordan Ponticelli’s first goal since 14/4/18 (Crawley … Continue reading #WxmAnorak | Chesterfield 3 Wrexham AFC 2

PREVIEW | Chesterfield v Wrexham AFC

This is the fourth time we’ve faced Chesterfield this season, and surely the most important. We suffered one of our most disappointing defeats of the season at The Racecourse last October, when we dominated The Spireites for half an hour, only to collapse completely after an unnecessary own goal by Michael Chambers. We were offered a swift opportunity for revenge though, as four days later … Continue reading PREVIEW | Chesterfield v Wrexham AFC

Italian for Beginners

Isn’t Italian a lyrical language? Signing Jordan Ponticelli was an invitation to delve into linguistics which I couldn’t resist. It seemed pretty obvious that his name means little bridges, but that’s not all. Ponticelli is also the Italian word for jump leads! How brilliant, to come up with such an evocative word for a mundane object. They make little bridges between cars; why didn’t we … Continue reading Italian for Beginners

PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v Dagenham & Redbridge

We finally got our first home win over Dagenham last season, at the fourth attempt. Stuart Beavon’s 74th minute strike separated the two sides a quarter of an hour after he’d come off the bench to replace Cole Stockton. Prior to that we’d lost two and drawn one of our home games against The Daggers. Our first clash was in the season we were relegated … Continue reading PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v Dagenham & Redbridge

#WxmAnorak | Wrexham AFC 3 Chorley 1

This is the first competitive match between Wrexham and Chorley. Wrexham’s 100th game on Boxing Day. Wrexham have won 3 out of 4 league games in December: the most wins managed in any month this season in all competitions. Wrexham have won 3 of their last 4 league games by two goals, having previously not won a league match by more than 1 goal all … Continue reading #WxmAnorak | Wrexham AFC 3 Chorley 1

5 Questions Before Sutton United v Wrexham AFC

Can we win the flanks? Naturally, our switch to three at the back has placed extra responsibility on our wing backs to provide attacking width. Today they will come up against a 4-4-2 which could cause them problems, though. The threat of Sutton’s full backs overlapping to create overloads with their wide midfielders is something Mark Carrington and James Jennings will have to overcome if … Continue reading 5 Questions Before Sutton United v Wrexham AFC

250 Up For Mark Carrington

Mark Carrington plays his 250th match for Wrexham today. He’s the 36th player to pass the milestone in the club’s 155-year history, and the first since the man who brought him to the club, Andy Morrell in 2013. Morrell and Carrington will be the only Wrexham players to have reached this milestone who have appeared in the National League, and Carrington is the first Wrexham … Continue reading 250 Up For Mark Carrington

PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v Solihull Moors

There’s a promising pattern forming against Solihull Moors at The Racecourse. We beat them 1-0 at the end of 2018 thanks to a 48th minute Paul Rutherford goal, and we beat them 1-0 at the end of 2017 thanks to a 40th minute Paul Rutherford goal. If Rutherford makes it a hat trick, not only will he have scored more times than in any of … Continue reading PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v Solihull Moors

#WxmAnorak | Ebbsfleet United 2 Wrexham AFC 1

Bottom of the National League is the lowest position in Wrexham’s history since joining the pyramid. Previous lowest: equal 22nd in National League on August 8th 2015, after losing 3-1 at Bromley on the first day of the season, level with Halifax and above Southport, who lost 4-0 at home to Eastleigh. Wrexham have not won any of their last 15 away games – their … Continue reading #WxmAnorak | Ebbsfleet United 2 Wrexham AFC 1
