6+6=HISTORY
In scoring 6 goals in consecutive home league games, we've achieved something which we've only done once before in modern times. That other occasion came in January 1933 when we beat (Hartlepool 8-1 and then Southport 6-0, both in the Third Division North.

We have enjoyed similar back-to-back successes, but only before we joined the Football League. We need to be careful in comparing games from that period with the modern day game, as we were clearly playing at a different level of competition. However, they should certainly be acknowledged in the club records as they are a part of our history. So, last week was the 4th time we've scored 6 or more in consecutive home league games, but the 1933 games were probably the only instance we could describe as a similar ahievement against comparable opponents.

In 1902 we won 2 consecutive home games 9-0, against Newton-le-Willows and then Bangor - in the Combination League.

We enjoyed some high-scoring wins when we were in the Welsh League in the 19th Century, and in the process gave the current team something to aim for! In 1894, we won three consecutive home games, scoring 6 or more in the process. We beat Rhos 9-0, Chirk 6-3 and Rhosytyllen Victoria 7-2.

Our next match at home saw us let ourselves down, only beating Mold Red Star 4-0! However, we soon got back in the swing of things with an 11-1 win over Caegwrle Wanderers, our biggest ever home victory, and then a 7-1 victory over Macclesfield Town in the FA Cup. That's six consecutive home wins, and we scored 6 or more in 5 of them!

The legendary Harry Trainer scored in all those matches, including three hat tricks, and ended up with 14 goals from the 6 games. Something for Mister Mullin and Mister Palmer to consider!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It was also the 5th time in our history that we've scored 6 or more in consecutive league matches, regardless of venue.

The two 9-0 wins in 1892, the 1933 victories and the Welsh League wins over Rhos and Chirk all came back-to-back. 

However, the club record is 3 consecutive league games in which we scored 6 or more, despite the fact that the first two were away from home! In 1899 we won 6-1 at Rhyl, then 8-2 at Aberystwyth before returning to The Racecourse to triumph 8-2 over Newton, all in the Combination League!

Wrexham have scored 6 or more goals in 3 league matches this season. We've only achieved this more often twice - in 1894-5 and 1899-1900.

Before this season, Wrexham had only scored 6 or more goals in 3 league games this century: April 2003 Carlisle United (h) 6-1; March 2005 Hartlepool United (a) 6-4; December 2012 Nuneaton Borough (h) 6-1.

In the 43 years between 1978 and 2021, Wrexham scored 6 or more goals in a league game 5 times.

Paul Mullin has scored in 7 consecutive home games, the most by a Wrexham player since Gary Bennett (11 games in 1993)

Both Paul Mullin and Ollie Palmer scored in 5 of the last 8 games they started together.

Mullin and Palmer have started together in 10 games: 16 goals, 3 assists, 8 wins, 2 draws.

Only 5 players in Wrexham's history have got to 10 goals in fewer games than Ollie Palmer.
