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

BUTTS PARK ARENA: Seeing Sporting Battles

Coventry is steeped in sporting pedigree. The city’s name is associated with various clubs and franchises from the worlds of football, rugby, ice hockey and speedway. But while this hub of sport should be celebrated, it’s currently suffering from much division, with the epicentre being a 32,500-seater stadium located to the north of the city. The Ricoh Arena is one of the most controversial venues … Continue reading BUTTS PARK ARENA: Seeing Sporting Battles

RUSSELLS MEADOW: Hills and Thrills

Leading up to my last groundhop at Aldershot Town, I managed to convince myself that an eight-hour round trip down south would have some worth… and it did, to be fair. Despite losing in the last-minute, I had a great day out travelling the country and managed to write a good few paragraphs on Wrexham’s terrible start to the season. But, heading into Wrexham’s next … Continue reading RUSSELLS MEADOW: Hills and Thrills

RECREATION GROUND: Entering The Endgame

Before the season began, I marked Aldershot down as my second Wrexham away day of the campaign. It was a new ground for me, not too difficult to travel to and would take place before the harsh conditions of winter kicked in a few weeks later. However, in the run-up to the match, it became very hard to justify a trip to Hampshire. The weather … Continue reading RECREATION GROUND: Entering The Endgame

CITY GROUND / MEADOW LANE: Nott A Bad Weekend

Following on from trips to Dover, Maidenhead and Guiseley, my friend, Sam, and I headed to Nottingham for my traditional birthday away day. Although this year’s event was over a week after my 28th, we made it a special one by grabbing tickets to Wrexham’s Sunday clash with Notts County, as well as Nottingham Forest’s game against Birmingham City the day before. With the two … Continue reading CITY GROUND / MEADOW LANE: Nott A Bad Weekend

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
