This letter was published on February 15th 2017 in The Leader I’d always assumed that people run for public office because they are driven by a desire to protect what is precious about their community. Your actions over the last few years have made me doubt that assumption. I hope you will prove me wrong in the coming months by pursuing a resolution to the … Continue reading An Open Letter to Wrexham County Borough Council
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. Saturday’s game is crucial in the context of our season but in the big scheme of things it’s nothing compared to Tuesday night’s fixture. The vote on … Continue reading Why we must vote yes to the Racecourse lease

So, what does a man do when he has a train ticket to Braintree burning a hole in his pocket and no match to go to? There’s only one real option, a trip to see The Lions! Well, that was literally the only option as it was the only professional level match going ahead in London on Saturday thanks to the weather and the FA … Continue reading Support Millwall FC’s cause and do Wrexham FC a favour
I’ve every confidence in Andy Morrell’s men being able to get us back into the Football League this season, but small factors can turn out to be significant when you’re pursuing a league title, and I hope the state of the Racecourse pitch doesn’t turn out to be crucial. It doesn’t look good, does it? Bobbly and heavy, it isn’t conducive to passing football and … Continue reading Got 99 Problems and the Pitch is One
Two games I have seen this week have once again brought home the number of players that have passed through the revolving door at The Racecourse over the last few years. Firstly although unable to travel to Wembley on Tuesday the appearances of Andrew Crofts, Neil Taylor and Joe Allon confirmed that players can go on to bigger and better things after leaving North Wales. … Continue reading The Benefits of a Settled Side

He chose not to represent his country any … Continue reading >Giggs’ International Commitment
