Double snap !

Just looked up my first match - suggest others do by logging onto Wrexham FC Programme archive - it's brilliant for bringing back memories and has cleared some things up that were puzzling me.

Monday 02 March 1970 in the 69 / 70 season when we finished runners up.
Remember watching the game from the Yale Stand upper section - don't think the stand had been in operation for long and was all shiny and new (well the seats were)

Wrexham 0 Lincoln City 0
Attendance 7,377

I do recall it was a night match but have treble checked and for some strange reason it was on a Monday night with a 7.15 pm kick off - do remember it was a bright sunny evening.

My first ever proper football match - I was bowled over by the crowd, the vivid green of the pitch but seeing a giant in a red shirt that looked twice as big as any other player and who must have come down the beanstalk to play for us even though his name wasn't Jack but the legendary one and only Eddie May.
