A surprise defeat of Wrexham’s first team by Chester 2 at the start of March finally put paid to any hope of Wrexham retaining their League 1 title.
Missing their captain and talisman Richard Dineley Wrexham were at a disadvantage which Chester capitalized upon, winning 3½ to 1½. The only good news for Wrexham was the continued impressive form of Ray Holland who notched up his third victory in a row.
The first team were able to bounce back from this defeat though with a impressive display against Rhyl & Prestatyn. With Richard back at the helm wins by David James and David Simpson saw Wrexham through to an eventual 3½ to 1½ victory.
Jixan Yang played his first league game of the season for Wrexham 2 in their league 3 match against Corwen and Ruthin. The offer of a poisoned pawn led to a quick victory for Gary Slegg and victories by Jixan and team captain Peter Fisher soon followed. Ray Holland’s opponent put up a strong defence and seemed to be holding his own, but Ray doggedly piled on the pressure to record yet another win.
