HUMPHREY KER COLUMN | “Another week and another win”

The latest from Wrexham AFC’s Executive Director

8 September 2022

Another week and another win as the Club aims to ascend to the top of the National League table, put down roots and prove as difficult to shift from that spot as possible for the rest of the season.

A very healthy following of Reds made their way down to the unfamiliar surroundings of Dorking on Saturday to witness as complete a performance as I can remember the boys having given in all my - admittedly still rather short - time of following Wrexham.

Our second 5-0 performance in the last four games, with goals from all over the pitch, nobody getting injured on the artificial service and the Dorking Chairman/Manager sticking £300 behind the bar for our travelling fans, it's fair to say everybody enjoyed their trip to Meadowbank. I think I can say with some confidence that Dorking will have won a few Wrexham hearts with their buccaneering playing style and generosity of spirit and I know I will be keeping an eye out for their results and wishing them well for the rest of the season.

On Sunday, our Women's Team started their season in blistering form, putting Llanfair United to the sword and coming away 6-0 winners. Rosie Hughes continued her extraordinary levels of performance from last season and bagged herself yet another hat-trick; conservatively estimated to be her one millionth since she made her debut last season.

I don't know what it is that makes her hate opposition clean sheets so much, though I heard a rumour that she was raised living in a cupboard under the stairs, Harry Potter-style, by her cruel Aunt and Uncle who both also happened to be clean sheets. The Women's Team are back in action on Sunday at home to CPDM Y Felinheli, so get yourself down there if you want to back the team and presumably see Rosie get hat-trick number one million and one.

Away from the pitch, this last week has seen a flurry of activity in the Club Shop, with hundreds of orders coming in from across the world as newly-minted Wrexham fans rushed to the online store to snap up anything and everything that would allow them to flaunt their burgeoning allegiance.

It is both incredibly welcome, and also rather daunting as we scramble to restock to meet demand. As ever, Macron are stepping into the breach to help us meet demand and as we wait for resupply we can always fall back on our creativity, by providing less traditional offerings. Fancy a Zoom with Wrexham AFC Head Groundsman Paul Challinor, so he can tell you where you are going wrong with your lawn? £250. Impress your friends with a petrol station receipt signed by Max Cleworth! £100 Want to spruce up your kitchen with the mini-fridge from the pod? The one from which the half a sausage roll I stashed in there yesterday has mysteriously disappeared? £10 (I hate that fridge).

Happily, I don't think we will need to fall back on such measures any time soon, though it is reassuring to know we do have a back up plan for dealing with any future shortages.

Right, let's give Phil and the boys plenty of backing on Saturday. Fortress Cae Ras in full effect. Bring on Maidenhead.
