#WXMANORAK | Wrexham 3-2 Blyth Spartans

A big milestone for the big man

19 October 2022


Ollie Palmer’s 150th career goal.

Paul Mullin’s 44th goal for Wrexham. He overtakes Lee Jones, Craig Faulconbridge, Gren Jones and Fred Burgon to become our 35th highest scorer, equal with Gareth Owen, Eddie May and George Burditt.

Palmer and Mullin both scored in each of our last 5 home games.



Last time Wrexham won the first 7 home games in a season: 1969.

This is the equal second longest run of home wins from the start of the season since we joined the Football League in 1921, and the 6th longest in the club’s entire history.

Wrexham have scored three goals in the first half of each of our last 3 home games. The last time we did this was May 2003.

Wrexham have scored three goals in the first half of 4 of our 7 home games this season.

The Eastleigh game on the opening day of the season is the only home match in which Wrexham haven’t scored at least two goals in the first half, and the only home game we weren’t leading at half time this season.

Wrexham’s biggest FA Cup attendance since 18/01/2012 Brighton (h) 1-1 (lost on penalties.)

Blyth Spartans brought the most away fans to The Racecourse so far this season.

Last time Wrexham got a bigger FA Cup crowd against a side from a lower division: 24/01/1981 Wimbledon (h) 2-1 (4th Round, 12,267)


Wrexham remain unbeaten in this fixture.

5 goals is the highest aggregate score for a Wrexham-Blyth Spartans match.
