I was on the Kop that night against West Ham. Wow was it packed. Sardines hardly covered it. If you get the footage on YouTube it really looks awesome.

Almost 18,000 in pretty much just 3 sides of the ground and West Ham only had about 1,500 in the GUS so 16,500 Wrexham fans in The Yale and The Kop. I do remember kids at the front of the Kop being passed over to avoid them getting crushed.
