HUMPHREY KER COLUMN | "Let's really make a go of it"

The latest from Wrexham AFC's Executive Director

10 November 2022

Well, well, well. If it isn’t our old friend and sometime lover, Top Of The League.

Good to see you Top Of The League, you're looking great. You haven't changed a bit, but now we are back together, let's really make a go of it.
 
Don't go running back to Notts County or Chesterfield, because that feels safe and familiar; we are in this, together, sweet Top of the League, and we are in it to win it.
 
There is a very long way to go in the season yet, but, it's nice to be looking down upon your rivals, especially in comparison to this stage last year, where we were just starting to get ourselves in gear, but still sat somewhere in mid-table at this point in proceedings.
 
Victory against Scunthorpe on Wednesday night propelled Phil and the boys to the summit of the National League, following a fine display at Glanford Park. Goals from the usual suspects, Ollie, Paul and Aaron "The Red Baron" Hayden sent the travelling Wrexham fans home happy.
 
I'd like to give a shoutout to Callum "New Daddy" McFaddy, who, when I was able to turn on the commentary during my lunch break from American Auto, the wildly unknown sitcom I work on in LA, managed to hit the post with a wonder strike and then put it on a plate for Paul Mullin all in the space of about two and a half minutes.
 
Callum welcomed a new addition to the family last Tuesday, before turning in two fantastic performances in quick succession on Saturday and then yesterday. Is a new son the secret to these great performances? We'll never know, but I did try to suggest that all the players get cracking with making more babies, before being told that I was creating an HR issue.
 
Away from the pitch, we saw, on Monday, the approval of plans for the new Kop stand. I don't imagine anyone reading this doesn't already appreciate the significance of a potential new stand and planning permission was a vital next step on the journey to an extra 5500 seats.
 
Next hurdle is the awarding of the Levelling-Up Funds, which we anticipate at the end of the month. Everybody cross your fingers and toes and anything else crossable that you may have.
 
Next stop, Wealdstone!
