AFC FYLDE | New Year, Different Team

On paper, a groundhop to AFC Fylde looked unrewarding. Wrexham were aiming to halt a run of four straight defeats and record their first points of the new year against their National League promotion rivals. Meanwhile, plunging January temperatures and Northern Rail industrial action made the train ride up to Lancashire very unappealing – particularly with Shrewsbury fans heading to neighbouring Blackpool for their game … Continue reading AFC FYLDE | New Year, Different Team

SALFORD CITY | Redhead Redemption

The Boxing Day clash between National League title rivals Wrexham and Salford turned out to be a late contender of mine for game of the year. My team – the fan-owned club from North Wales – put five goals past the billionaire-owned Salford City and inflicted the Ammies’ third straight defeat in the process. I honestly couldn’t believe what I watched at the Racecourse Ground … Continue reading SALFORD CITY | Redhead Redemption

CHESTER FC | Bordering On Christmas

Right up until the morning of the game itself, I questioned whether I should go to Chester for a groundhop. Christmas had taken its toll on me at work. Extra hours, extra people and extra stress made the prospect of being amongst hoards of last-minute shoppers in Cheshire unappealing. Plus, I didn’t know if I’d have enough time to write a post afterwards. Everything felt … Continue reading CHESTER FC | Bordering On Christmas

CHESTERFIELD | Ending On A Sad Note

Chesterfield 1 – 1 Wrexham Proact Stadium When the National League fixtures were announced three months ago, I marked Chesterfield down as a top away day. The journey to the North Derbyshire market town was one of the simplest Wrexham had to make, while my friend, Tim, resided in the same county. It all added up. Heading into the fixture, my excitement only intensified when … Continue reading CHESTERFIELD | Ending On A Sad Note

HARROGATE TOWN | Missing Out On Glory

Harrogate Town 0 – 0 Wrexham AFC CNG Stadium A few people may have noticed the National League is pretty lopsided this season- and that’s not a reference to Salford’s budget either. It’s the noticeable north-south divide when looking at the footballing map that grabs my attention. Fourteen of the 24 clubs that make up the league are located south of Milton Keynes – with … Continue reading HARROGATE TOWN | Missing Out On Glory

BOLDMERE ST. MICHAELS | Scoring By The Dozen

Aston Villa Ladies 0 – 12 Man United Women Trevor Brown Memorial Ground Women’s football is entering a new era in England. The league system has changed to three divisions: The FA Women’s Super League, The FA Women’s Championship and The FA Women’s National League – which is split into northern and southern sections. The FAWSL is a fully professional league, while the FAWC is … Continue reading BOLDMERE ST. MICHAELS | Scoring By The Dozen

DOVER ATHLETIC | Debut Delights

My friend, Sam, and I have travelled across the country to see Wrexham’s first away game of the season for the past two campaigns. Trips to Guiseley and Maidenhead have given us plenty of stories, along with plenty of points (six in total). But, interestingly, every time we’ve visited a new place on the road with the Reds, it’s been under a different manager every … Continue reading DOVER ATHLETIC | Debut Delights

SOLIHULL MOORS | Drawing Positives

Solihull Moors 0 – 0 Wrexham Damson Park Things were a lot different when Wrexham last played Solihull. A 1-0 win for the Reds in mid-November left Moors bottom of the National League on 12 points while Wrexham lifted themselves to top spot, two points clear of Dover in second. Fast forward three months and you’ll find that fortunes have been reversed for both clubs. … Continue reading SOLIHULL MOORS | Drawing Positives

AFC TELFORD UNITED | Seeing Familiar Faces

AFC Telford United 4 – 2 Droylsden New Bucks Head Having failed to get into Borussia Dortmund’s Signal Iduna Park a few days earlier, I decided to take things a little easier with a trip to my hometown club AFC Telford United. The Bucks currently reside in the National League North but were in action for the FA Trophy third qualifying round. Their opponents were … Continue reading AFC TELFORD UNITED | Seeing Familiar Faces

MAIDENHEAD UNITED | A Birthday Getaway

Maidenhead United 1 – 2 Wrexham York Road Every year for my birthday, I go on an all-night adventure with my friend Sam to the other side of the country. We’ve previously taken in cities like London and Bristol until the early hours of the morning but we’ve started centring our travels around Wrexham away games. Last year we ventured north to Guiseley and witnessed … Continue reading MAIDENHEAD UNITED | A Birthday Getaway
