Wrexham History

The first and last parts of this story are what make Wrexham interesting and famous. In between is the story of a team below the second tier for almost their entire history, with a few famous victories and cup runs to brag about. The club was founded in October 1864 in a local pub and played their first game right out back later that month. Both…


By far the biggest is Chester, just 10 miles away—and in England, which only makes it worse.
