PREVIEW | Bromley v Wrexham AFC

Last Saturday’s postponement means that Dean Keates’ 100th game as Wrexham manager comes today, against the side he beat to earn his first win as manager. Bromley were the visitors to The Racecourse when goals from Shaun Harrad and Gerry McDonagh earned a 2-1 home win in October 2016. However, our record at Hayes Lane could do with some improvement. Luke Young’s 77th minute winner … Continue reading PREVIEW | Bromley v Wrexham AFC

Preview | Wrexham AFC v Bromley

Dean Keates has positive memories of welcoming Bromley to The Racecourse. His first win as manager came at their expense in October 2016 as Shaun Harrad and Gerry McDonagh scored the goals in a 2-1 win. Keates would clear his squad out swiftly though, as only two of the players used in that match would still be at the club by the start of next … Continue reading Preview | Wrexham AFC v Bromley

PREVIEW Wrexham AFC v Bromley

If we win today we’ll have won four consecutive matches for the first time since August 2015, and we have a perfect home record against Bromley, although we’ll also lack our secret weapon against them, as we can no longer call upon the services of Ntumba Massanka! Massanka’s scoring record against Bromley is remarkable, with four goals in two substitute appearances. That record is made … Continue reading PREVIEW Wrexham AFC v Bromley

4-3-3 Offers More Threat

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

PREVIEW: Bromley v Wrexham AFC

We’ve been to Bromley once before, and it was horrible! It was the opening day of last season, and Gary Mills’ newly assembled side went into the match against their newly-promoted opponents on a wave of optimism. In front of a considerable away following, basking in hope and August sunshine, they started superbly too. The possession football we’d been promised was evident as we dominated … Continue reading PREVIEW: Bromley v Wrexham AFC

Rumours Raining on Racecourse Part Two

Written by Gruffudd ab Owain Back in the summer, I wrote an article concerning the transfer rumours at the time called ‘Rumours Raining on Racecourse’. Welcome to volume 2! At the time Gary Mills was in charge of the club and three attackers were linked with Wrexham. John Rooney, Matt Rhead and Jordan Lussey were the ones amid speculation back in the close-season. Rooney has … Continue reading Rumours Raining on Racecourse Part Two

Kai and Jordan’s departures send message to the Wrexham AFC squad

No Wrexham player could be surprised to see the departures begin to mount up this week, but the identities of a couple of the players who have gone might give them pause for thought. When Kai Edwards and Jordan Evans left yesterday, any doubt that Dean Keates will make the necessary tough choices to reshape his squad were removed. There were plenty of players in … Continue reading Kai and Jordan’s departures send message to the Wrexham AFC squad
