(From The Leader) It’s nearly four years since Mark Carrington scored that goal at Stoke City – and Wrexham’s vice-captain would love to write more FA Cup headlines.

Kevin Wilkin’s side reached the third round of the competition in 2014-15 and Carrington’s header put Wrexham 1-0 up at then-Premier League side Stoke City. Mark Hughes’ men struck three times in the final 10 minutes to avoid an upset, but Carrington will never forget scoring in front of nearly 5,000 travelling supporters and hopes to experience more cup magic this year.

“When this time of year comes around it gets brought up again,” said Carrington, the current longest serving player in the Wrexham squad. “The videos will be out again!

“It was a great moment and one of the best of my career. It is what dreams are made of and in front of the end that was packed out.

“To go 1-0 up as well, it gave us a bit of belief that we could have gone on and done something but it wasn’t to be.

“But it was a good day and it would be nice if we could go and do something like that again.”
