HUMPHREY KER COLUMN | “The perfect way to lay the ghosts to rest”

Read the latest from Wrexham AFC’s Executive Director

30 September 2022

Saturday's six-nil win over Torquay United, with six different goal scorers, a first Wrexham goal for Sam Dalby and scintillating performances from 1-11 and then from 12 and 13 when they came on, was the perfect way to lay the ghosts to rest of Torquay's last visit to the Racecourse, where they played the role of party-poopers of Rob and Ryan's big day exquisitely.

It was a lovely gift from the scheduling Gods that last Thursday's episode of Welcome to Wrexham was so heavily based around that game, from a period, a little deeper into last season, where we were struggling to score goals and struggling to finish teams off at the Racecourse.

The juxtaposition was stark. In fact, I thought Torquay looked impressive in patches and until the third goal, it was not the most uneven of contests.

We were relentless, however and being able to replace Ollie Palmer and Paul Mullin with Sam Dalby and Elliot Lee speaks to the massive increase in squad depth that has been achieved over the intervening ten months or so between the two fixtures.

The Club released some data over the weekend that revealed the extraordinary reach of the documentary and the incredible interest that has been shown in the Club since its release.

The numbers have been quite staggering, though are reflective in many sense of the increased interest we have seen locally.

I have so enjoyed seeing the joy that the post-Covid reinstatement of the match mascots has brought to the kids and their parents alike. If you haven't watched the latest Triple A video on the Club's YouTube Channel, it is more than worth it, just to see the kids enjoying their day, and that's before you get to the goals.

We've a busy week ahead, with three games in seven days. Trips to Oldham and Notts County and a return home to Barnet next Saturday. I will pre-emptively say, thanks for your great support, because I know it will be. Here's to three great results.
