Here’s my column from last week’s Leader. It forms part of the paper’s comprehensive pre-match coverage every Friday, featuring interviews, an in-depth look at the opposition and lots of statistical analysis. All content in the column (c) http://www.leaderlive.co.uk. We’ve never faced North Ferriby before, but can go into the final knowing we’ve got a great deal more experience than them in cup competitions, and have … Continue reading PREVIEW: FA Trophy final – Wrexham FC v North Ferriby United
Before home games I normally drop my Grandparents off at Cashconverters, which provides me with just enough money to get a seat behind the goal. It’s quite a cosy shop, or so my Grandparents tell me when I pick them up on payday. On the way to the ground it gives me a great thrill when Mark Griffiths (International Goalkeeper, etc ,etc , etc) waves … Continue reading What Do We Want…When Do We Want It?
Well, if Kevin Wilkin didn’t have a good idea of the job in hand, he does now. It usually takes more than one training session to make a difference and it was a good job Wrexham’s fans remembered that. It has to be said that if we’d played like this at home to a team that hadn’t won or scored in four games and has … Continue reading Wrexham 1 Salisbury City 1

Nicky Laws was obviously delighted, speaking after his Alfreton team had just achieved the double over Wrexham. His post-match interview wasn’t over the top and remained realistic but did he unearth some hidden treasure that may come in handy for the management team at the Racecourse? He stopped short of actually naming the teams he was obviously referring to but he mentioned that to be … Continue reading Does Wrexham FC Need a Different Footballing Philosophy to Gain Promotion?
As our league campaign takes a natural break for our first cup match of the season, this seems a natural juncture to have a look at how things have gone so far. Our defence has already had lots of attention, not least because of our well documented problems fielding a settled back four. In particular, the way Wrexham concede, and how that has changed as … Continue reading Tactical Analysis: How Wrexham Concede
There have been technical problems uploading videos to the Wrexham Player site this week and we’re still waiting for them to be solved so we’ve decided that, rather than leave the full highlights and interviews from the last week unwatched, we’d upload them onto the club’s YouTube site. Normally there are restrictions on the YouTube site-highlights can’t be longer than two and a half minutes and interviews … Continue reading Youtube Highlights Update
First things first: don’t panic. Having watched the DVD of the game, this wasn’t as bad as it sounded. I couldn’t make it to the game, and listening in from a distance I shared the general concern at the result. However, I find It’s natural to over-react when your team loses and you didn’t see it, and this is one of those occasions. We were … Continue reading Salisbury City 2 Wrexham 1

> Hold on a second…we thought Weymouth were coming to The Racecourse with nothing to play for, but it turns out they might stay up after all! According to their new chairman Ian Ridley, there’s talk that a team which has survived the battle against the drop might want to take a voluntary demotion, meaning the side in fourth bottom will stay up, so a … Continue reading >It’s Not A Dead Match After All!
