The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Wrexham AFC.

The BBC lead their Wrexham AFC page with the 2-0 win over Chester FC. While the national BBC News page hold an article praising fans behaviour during the cross-border derby. 

The National League Website also ran a story about the big win over rivals Chester FC. While they say the game took a little time to get going, they say the game sprung in to life in the second half with Wrexham staking a claim for a promotion place. They also include our midfielder Sam Wedgbury in their team of the weekend. They said that Sam "drove his team forward" to victory in the cross-border derby. 

The Mail ran an interesting story about the cross-border derby which compares the plights of both sides. They also rated our pies, beer and programme as amongst the best in non-league football!  

Locally, the Leader have spoken to manager Dean Keates who has dismissed rumours linking him to the vacant managers job at League One side and his home-town club Walsall. Keates said: "I was asked to help out here, got myself an opportunity and got to an interview, came across correctly in the interview and got myself a job for a year-and-a-half. Then that got ripped up and the club showed faith in me to build a long term project together. My job is at Wrexham Football Club and that is all I am concerned about."

The Daily Post have spoken to striker Scott Quigley who say's he is enjoying playing in big derby games for Wrexham AFC. The goal scorer told them: “Between that and Tranmere, it would be hard to beat as it’s the best feeling, but this was to put us in front and to look up and see the same faces and a lot of fans was brilliant for me."

The Wrexham AFC Media Team analysed the win over Chester on our YouTube channel. Also, the playlist is available to catch up on all of the action from the weekend.
