FC HALIFAX TOWN | A Blue Easter Monday

When Wrexham entered 2019 with a record of three defeats in the whole season, many fans were looking at the Easter Monday game against FC Halifax Town as the match that clinches our National League title. Even I allowed myself to dream, as I pictured our supporters running on to the pitch at The Shay after Shaun Pearson’s header secured our return to the Football … Continue reading FC HALIFAX TOWN | A Blue Easter Monday

HEREFORD FC | Flagging Up Problems

Before this season, Hereford FC had only lost 10 league games in their entire history after gaining three successive promotions as the phoenix club of Hereford United. However, the Bulls have now more than doubled that tally following a season of struggle in the sixth tier. Peter Beadle – who took them to the National League North from the Midland League Premier Division – was … Continue reading HEREFORD FC | Flagging Up Problems

LEYTON ORIENT | A Sickening Defeat

The National League title race is reaching its conclusion but there are still several teams who fancy their chances of winning the division and claiming the one automatic promotion place. Wrexham and Leyton Orient are two of the teams battling for top spot and they faced each other in an early kick-off live on BT Sport. For Wrexham, they knew a win in East London … Continue reading LEYTON ORIENT | A Sickening Defeat

STOCKPORT COUNTY | Anticipation Blossoms

Whenever I think about which club’s fans have suffered the most in recent years, I’m always drawn to Stockport County’s. A decade ago, County supporters were backing a team in League One. However, three relegations in four years took the Hatters into the sixth tier of English football and they’ve struggled to make themselves real promotion candidates since. Last season, though, things began to click … Continue reading STOCKPORT COUNTY | Anticipation Blossoms

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
