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
A comment Kevin Wilkin made after the 6-1 victory over Stockport intrigued me. Naturally attention was focussed on his opinion of the beating we’d doled out to The Hatters and the comedy capers as Joe Clarke went in goal, but it was his judgement of Steve Tomassen which really made my ears prick up. It was just the one sentence, but it revealed a lot: … Continue reading Is It Tomassen Time?

First time Wrexham have scored six since December 2012 (Nuneaton Town 6-1). Wrexham’s biggest win over Stockport County (previously 6-2 FA Cup 3rd Round 1979). Wes York was the first Wrexham player to provide three assists in a match since Kevin Thornton at Sutton in January 2013. Wrexham’s 3rd consecutive home win over Stockport, equalling their best run of home victories over The Hatters. In … Continue reading THE WRAP: Wrexham FC v Stockport County
Positives: The second half. Our second goal! Ross White’s contribution, both defensively and bringing the ball out from the back. Louis Moult looked a level above anything else on the pitch. The overlapping of Neil Ashton and Mark Carrington in the second half stretched Stockport. Dean Keates back on the bench! As always, the work rate of Connor Jennings. In the midst of chaos, Jay … Continue reading BALANCE SHEET: Stockport County v Wrexham FC
