Wrexham have released a player with more match-winning ability than any other at their disposal; so why am I so glad? Lee McEvilly was our most destructive, disruptive player; feel free to interpret that however you want. There can be no doubt that, when he felt like it, he was an awesome attacking force, capable of destroying opposing defences on his own. However, Brian Carey is wisely culling players who perform when in the mood in favour of good men to have in the changing room like Michael Proctor and Anthony Williams. I cut McEvilly slack for longer than most but Carey's right: we've been waiting for two years for McEvilly to find fitness and consisent form. He has the ability to take us up, but it just wasn't going to happen.
