First time Wrexham won a game 6-5.

Third equal highest goal aggregate in a Wrexham game.


Last time there were 11 goals in a Wrexham match: 3/3/1962 Hartlepools United (h) 10-1

Last time there were more than 11 goals in a Wrexham match: 3/1/1934 New Brighton (h) 11-1.

Last time Wrexham came back to win from 3 goals down: 28/10/00 Luton (a) 4-3

Last time Wrexham came back from 3 goals down in a home game: 24/8/96 Plymouth (h) 4-4 (and we had a late penalty saved by Bruce Grobbelaar!)

Wrexham scored six goals in consecutive home league games against Dover and Barnet. We’ve only done this once before since joining the Football League, 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 achievement 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!
