History

Wrexham Association Football Club (AFC) is a professional association football club based in Wrexham, Wales nicknamed the Dragons. Based on the club's recorded formation date of 1864, they are the oldest club in Wales and the third oldest professional football team in the world.

The club has competed in the National League, since being relegated from League Two at the end of the 2007–08 season after 87 consecutive years in the Football League. In 2011, they became a supporter-owned football club.

One of their most famous moments is the victory over Arsenal in the FA Cup in 1992, as well as playing in the European Cup Winners Cup.

Last Season

Last season Wrexham AFC finished in 13th place in the National League table. They finished with 58 points, winning 15 games, drawing 13 and losing 18.

Their top scorer was ex-Macclesfield midfielder John Rooney with 11 goals, an average of 227 minutes per goal. He has since signed for Guiseley after a contract dispute.

In December, the Silkmen won 3-0 at the Racecourse Ground, and the score line was repeated as Wrexham visited Moss Rose.
