Just Another Ordinary Week In Wrexham

As ever, it was down to the supporters of the club to get to what looks like somewhere near the bottom of what has been going on. It was probably too much to hope that, after a unanimous vote at their SGM last week, the Wrexham Supporters Trust would merely be allowed to get on…

Scotland’s Non-League Clubs Given a Non-Chance

With this week’s focus properly set to the non-league game, it seems appropriate to also delve into Scottish non-league football.

My Favourite Match: France vs Portugal, The 1984 European Championships

Football matches come, of course, in all shapes and sizes – the critically important and the relatively inconsequential, local derbies steeped in decades of mutual loathing and round-trips which measure thousands of miles and have never been undertaken before.
