Memories not what it used to be,started early 70s wish I could forget the latter years and just remember the good old days.Hope I'm wrong but can't see us ever building a team like back then, at least not in my lifetime.����

So he missed the excitement of going a place in Div3 - I think on the last day of the season. Other wise the club would have played in the new Division 4.
What !!! and never saw football at the Racecourse without those ugly pylons in each corner. Haven't lived.

watched my first home game in 1963 lost 2-1 to Port Vale. My first away game was in 1965 and even worse, we lost 6-1 to Chester. Thankfully there have been many happier occasions since

45 for me - started in Sept 1974 with a classic.

Wrexham 0-0 Walsall.

Nothing much has changed.

Watching since the late 60s with a gap in between working away when I could ony get to occasional games.

Been back for years now and try not to miss any home matches - non-league or not. :)

Snap - 69/70 was a great season with Eddie May leading us to promotion.

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.
