VICTORY PARK: Big New Year Goals

Supporting Wrexham in 2019 was tough. Over the 12 months, the club reached the top of the table in February, lost their play-off eliminator in May and then sunk to the bottom of the National League come November. Three managers took charge of the team in that spell, with Dean Keates now tasked with the job of pulling us away from the relegation zone. If … Continue reading VICTORY PARK: Big New Year Goals

My Playlist Of The Decade

As 2020 rapidly approaches, I’ve been thinking a lot about the past 10 years. I believe this has been the first decade of my life where I can remember every detail from start to finish – starting at university as an 18-year-old and trying to use that Sports Journalism degree with this blog now. Looking back, I can say with conviction that for two-thirds of … Continue reading My Playlist Of The Decade

HAMPDEN PARK: Home Pleasures

Completing my Glasgow groundhopping trilogy was a visit to Scotland’s National Stadium. I didn’t pay for tickets to the encounter until the night before the game, as Wales were taking on Hungary at the same time in a winner-takes-all match to reach Euro 2020 and Scotland’s contest against Kazakhstan was a dead rubber that neither nations could qualify from. Rather than stay inside and watch … Continue reading HAMPDEN PARK: Home Pleasures

PETERSHILL PARK: History Repeating

After Wrexham exited the Scottish Challenge Cup during part one of my Glasgow groundhopping trilogy, my next installment took me to Petershill Park the following day. Glasgow City were ending their league campaign at home to Motherwell having secured their 13th consecutive Scottish Women’s Premier League title in the reverse fixture the previous month and, after the game, City would finally get to lift the … Continue reading PETERSHILL PARK: History Repeating

IBROX: Brief History In Scotland

There were a number of groundhopping options available to me on the weekend of November 16th, with two very appealing fixtures in the FA Women’s Super League making me wish I could split my body in half and witness both. In Liverpool, the first-ever women’s Merseyside derby was taking place at Anfield, while in the capital, a similar piece of footballing history would be made, … Continue reading IBROX: Brief History In Scotland

PLAINMOOR: Down In Devon

When my boss offered me an extra day of holiday at the end of October, I snapped his hand off and immediately began planning a far-flung mini-break with the girlfriend… in Torquay. The allure of an away match was there, with Wrexham playing The Gulls on Tuesday night. But as the month rolled on, the game became more and more of an unwelcome holiday distraction. … Continue reading PLAINMOOR: Down In Devon
