Wrexham AFC is a club for all, be it producing some of the finest Welsh talents or branching out to provide a team for all. 

Over the summer we extended the Wrexham family with the Woman's team being re-instated and entering a league system here in North Wales, along with the youth team we take a look at their progress thus far.

Youth Team

Our young Wrexham side began their progress in the EFL Alliance North West on August 4th with a trip to Port Vale. The Dragons fought hard but eventually fell to a 1-0 defeat. This was followed seven days later with a trip to Preston North End, where unfortunately a Cameron McGregor brace wasn't enough as we succumbed to a 4-2 loss. 

Finally, they were last in action on Tuesday in a high scoring encounter against Bury. Sam Pilkington grabbed a double whilst McGregor was on the scoresheet once more, however, Bury took the win 4-3. 

The side are next in action away to Wigan Athletic on Saturday, kicking off at 11am.

Women

Since the women's side was re-established over the summer they've been very busy with their preparations to enter the North Wales Football League on September 9th.

In the last week they've played two friendlies to continue their progress ahead of the new campaign. On Sunday they had perhaps their most notable game so far as a team when they played their first cross-border derby against Chester. The girls fought valiantly in the derby on enemy soil and goals from Jodie Richards and Lauren Reese either side of a Cestrian strike gave the reds the bragging rights.

Two days later they faced Airbus UK Broughton with 15-year old Lily Clifton captaining the side and proving she could have a bright future in the game. She led her side to a credible 2-2 draw with goals from a trialist and Reese once again finding the net.
