#WXMANORAK | Wrexham in the FA Cup

How have Wrexham fared in the FA Cup in recent years?

6 November 2021

Wrexham's pedigree in the FA Cup is legendary; our mythic quest for giant-killing glory is a massive part of our identity. As we travel to face Football League opposition once again, let's reflect on how we've done in the competition since dropping into the National League.

We've tended to find the qualifying round quite challenging, failing at that hurdle five times, but once we've got pat that obstacle we've tended to do well, especially considering how often we've been handed a First Round tie against higher level opposition.

Our heroic duels with Stoke City and Brighton and Hove Albion are, of course, the most memorable FA Cup ties we've played in recent years. However, the one time we've shocked a Football League side since dropping into the National League was that remarkable afternoon in Brentford, when Jamie Tolley's screamer earned victory in Griffin Park.
