Red Dragons roar in derby day win

24 December 2023

The Red Dragons claimed victory over their South Wales opposition on derby day when Newport County visited the STōK Cae Ras.

It was a momentous occasion for Wrexham AFC, which saw the new temporary Kop stand open for the first time - seeing fans back on the Kop for the first time since 2008. 

The Red Dragons and visiting Newport County both saw chances apiece in the first-half - Arthur Okonkwo on his return from injury however saving two crucial attempts at the Wrexham goal from the Exiles - keeping the game goal-less at the break.

A second half saw Wrexham on the attack for the opening goal from the restart - a goal which eventually came in the 64th minute. James Jones scoring his fourth of the season, and a first goal in front of the Kop end which saw the fans celebrate in style. A Red Dragons second in the 87th minute saw them claim a derby day victory over their South-Walian visitors - Elliot Lee wrapping up the pre-Christmas celebrations.
