I WAS delighted to see Wrexham get off to a flying start last weekend, following the summer departure for pastures new of several Racecourse favourites such as Carlos Edwards.
But the main man, Darren Ferguson, is still there and he holds the key to the club's prospects of success. He's hugely experienced and, although he's not the quickest, his brain more than compensates for his physical limitations.
Having been relegated by default, the Dragons will be expected to do well in League Two and manager Denis Smith has used his wealth of experience to bring in a few solid and reliable new faces.
Like Smith, I have high expectations this year of midfielder Mark Jones, who has tons of ability and now needs to add consistency to his game.
His excellent habits are the result of Wrexham always trying to play good football and I'm confident the club can bounce back.
That is important not only for the loyal supporters but for the future of football in the town.
