CEFN DRUIDS | Impressive Scenes In North Wales

It’s happened again. Eight weeks after Danny Hollands hit an extra-time play-off wonder-strike that left me unable to lift myself for another campaign in the National League, once again, I find myself eager for Wrexham to start the new season. Say it quietly but it’s actually been a near-perfect close season for the Dragons. The core members of the squad that featured in the play-off … Continue reading CEFN DRUIDS | Impressive Scenes In North Wales

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

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.

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

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
