Wrexham AFC's support has come in for a lot of praise of late, co-owner Ryan Reynolds, top scorer Paul Mullin and the great Mickey Thomas have all had their say on the Reds fans. 

Last Saturday's win over Barnet saw the total number of fans that have attended Wrexham games reach 150,699 and according to football statistics website transfermarket, it has been the most supported campaign in the last ten years. 

While there may be an obvious factor in why that is, the Wrexham faithful have always been loyal and attended in their thousands at home.

Since 2011/12, Wrexham have averaged over 3,000 at every home game, each season barring one - 2013/14 when it was 2,993. 

For a fan owned club in the fifth tier of English Football, that is seriously impressive. 

In the 2011/12 campaign, a total of 87,549 fans attended the 23 home games at the Racecourse, at an average of 3,806. 

This was the year the Reds' fell just short of Fleetwood for the title, despite winning 98 points. Andy Morrell's side ended up losing to Luton Town in the play-offs.

A year later, 80,968 watched Wrexham over the course of the seaon, which was an average attendance of 3,520 at the Racecourse. 

The Reds' won the FA Trophy Final and had a second trip to Wembley, which they lost to Newport. 

The 2013/14 campaign had the lowest attendances. A total of 68,850 attended Wrexham's home games, giving a 2,993 average.

It made sense as the Reds had a poor year, finishing 17th in the then Conference.

74,403 visited the Racecourse in 2014/15, averaging 3,235. 

Another disappointing season for the Reds, 11th in the League, losing to North Ferriby United in the FA Tropy final and Andy Morrell's time as manager came to an end.

There was a huge increase for the 2015/16 season, 106,177 fans attended the home games that year, an average of 4,616. 

The Reds finished 8th under Gary Mills in yet another underwhelming season. 

The 2016/17 season saw a drop off, with only 89,885 fans going to games at an average of 3,908.

Gary Mills got sacked two months into the season and was replaced by Dean Keates, however it was more disappointment as the Reds' finished 13th. 

The numbers were back up for the 2017/2018 season as 106,927 fans visited in total, averaging 4,649 at every home game. 

Wrexham looked on course to have a potentially successful season before Dean Keates left for Crewe in the March and the Reds ended up 10th. 

2018/19 was Wrexham's best campaign for six years as they finished 4th, and the attendances matched it. A total of 116, 766 fans attended the Racecourse at an average of 5,077. 

Sam Ricketts' reign started with promise before he went to Shrewsbury, Bryan Hughes ended up taking over and guided Wrexham to the play-offs where they lost 1-0 at home to Eastleigh. 

2019/20 was cut short by Covid and was Wrexham's worst campaign in the National League. 

73,043 fans at an average of 4,058 attended the 18 home games before the season was curtailed. 

Hughes lost his job early, before Keates returned but could only muster a 19th placed finish.

The 2020/21 season was of course played behind closed doors. 

Wrexham missed out on promotion on the final day, and a day later Dean Keates was out of a job.

So far this season, Wrexham are averaging 8,372 at every home game. 

In what was perhaps a slow start to the season, Phil Parkinson has got his side firing on all cylinders. 

Unbeaten in their last 13 games, winning 12 of them, the Reds are in the hunt for promotion.

They have a day at Wembley in the diary as well as some big home games which could easily see more 9,000 plus crowds. 

Who knows, but Wrexham could have a seriously good end to the season.
