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

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

THE ROCK: 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 THE ROCK: 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. 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

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
