As the weeks begin to turn into days when counting down to the opening game of the new campaign, we focus on our next pre-season friendly, making the short trip to Nantwich on Saturday (22nd July 2017) kick-off at 3.00pm. 

Wrexham have now played five pre-season matches this summer and have a 100% win record. Our last outing came against Warrington Town where a 2-0 lead curtsy of goals from Chris Holroyd and Scott Boden was cut short by Ruben Jermoe’s effort. However, the Dragons defended their lead to see out a fifth straight victory. Previously we’ve beaten Stafford Rangers as well as Louletano DC over in Portugal following victories at Cefn Druids and Lex. 

Nantwich have also had a very busy pre-season, beginning on July 6th away to Hanley Town, where they ran out 1-0 winners. They followed that up with a 5-1 win away at Eccleshall, a 0-0 draw with Market Drayton and 4-0 win at Leek Town. With two unbeaten sides this summer, something must give on Saturday.

Wrexham forward Chris Holroyd got himself off the mark this summer against Warrington Town on Tuesday. The former Macclesfield attacker has come close on a number of occasions but a goal has always eluded him until he took his chance earlier this week. He’ll be hoping that scoring touch remains. 

Dabbers ‘keeper Fabien Spiess has been in some wonderful form as of late and is one of the only Nantwich players with experience playing against Wrexham. His previous clubs include Notts County, Bristol Rovers and Torquay United and is a real coup for them.

Wrexham and Nantwich have only met once in recent history, coming in pre-season back in 2010 at Weaver Stadium. Wrexham ran out 4-0 winners with goals from Marc Williams, Wes Baynes, Jay Harris and Andy Mangan.

James Jennings was forced off against Warrington Town, but will be fit to play against Nantwich, while both Jack Mackreth and Olly Marks missed out due ot slight knocks. New signing Kevin Roberts is expected to make his debut for the club. There are no other injury worries for Dean Keates.
