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

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

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

Team Of The Year 2017

As the year-end lists come flooding in for the best albums, films and stories of 2017, I figured I’d contribute to the holiday reading with a High Stress Therapy combined XI. Any player is eligible if they’ve featured in a game blogged on the website, while their place in the team is based on their influence on the game rather than how good they are as … Continue reading Team Of The Year 2017

MACCLESFIELD TOWN | Heavy Flurries And Bitter Ends

Macclesfield Town 4 – 1 Wrexham Moss Rose Stadium Like most of the country this week, my eyes were consistently fixed to the weather forecast. A dramatic shift from wet and mild to snow and ice was scheduled for Thursday night and on into the weekend. As I awoke to snow on Friday morning, I wondered if Wrexham’s game at nearby Macclesfield would survive the … Continue reading MACCLESFIELD TOWN | Heavy Flurries And Bitter Ends

TRANMERE ROVERS | Derby Day Delirium

Tranmere Rovers 0 – 1 Wrexham Prenton Park Travelling to Birkenhead for the derby day clash between Wrexham and Tranmere, I envisaged several scenarios taking place. The pessimist in me thought Tranmere would thrash us. On paper, they have some of the best strikers in the whole National League. And yet, so far this season, Rovers have struggled to score. A story that’s familiar with Wrexham … Continue reading TRANMERE ROVERS | Derby Day Delirium

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

WREXHAM AFC | Opening Day Thoughts

Wrexham 0 – 1 Macclesfield Town The Racecourse Ground The beautiful thing about the opening day of a league season is the positivity. There’s new players, new shirts and new chants. Everything that happened in the previous campaign is put to one side as fans up and down the country dream of it being their year. Seeing Wrexham’s first home game of the season has … Continue reading WREXHAM AFC | Opening Day Thoughts
