2015-2016 (Second Round)

Now under the management of Gary Mills, who overhauled the squad during the summer, Wrexham looked set for a fresh campaign.

The league looked to be the new mans priority but having won the double at York City, Mills would have eyed up the trophy as well.

Wrexham were handed a tasty first round fixture against relegated side and local rivals Tranmere, a club that had also pursued the manager for their hot-seat during the summer.

Torquay would go on to avenge their semi-final defeat the previous season with a second round victory over the Dragons.

Wrexham Goals: Wes York, Dom Vose, Sean Newton, Manny Smith

Second Round: Torquay United 1-0 Wrexham
Venue/Date: Plainmoor | Sat. 16 Jan. 2016
Attendance: 1,361
