Subject to confirmation I believe these were the players that made the Wrexham team.

Billy Waters
Fred Davis
Alan Fox
Bill Green
Aly McGowan
Gren Jones
Ron Hewitt
Peter Thompson
John Anderson
Dave Jones
Albert Parker

Not sure about subs or positions but that should be the starting eleven.

Any other suggestions ?

Duncan Edwards - Munich fatality
Johnny Berry

Many thanks .That's the line-up I thought.
1-11 would be :-

Waters
Parker
McGowan
Davis
Fox
Green
Gren Jones
Hewitt
Thompson
Anderson
David Jones.

No substitutes in those days.

Johnny Berry survived the 1958 Munich air disaster, but his career as a footballer did not. The injuries he received in the crash, four months before his 32nd birthday, consigned to memory his nimble play on Manchester United's right flank as a seasoned professional in a team of prodigious fledglings. (Extract from his obituary in The Guardian 23 Sept 1994. Died16 Sept)

Really worthy of a watch is a documentary about the disaster including a prolonged interview with one of the survivors Sir Bobby Charlton - a broken man who showed extreme dignity and humility repeatedly questioning why he survived and so many others perished - I think it must haunt him to this day.
Sir Matt Busby survived but was in hospital for some time afterwards on the touch and go list.
Haunting to think those players were playing against Wrexham infront of such a big crowd for us and didn't know what was soon to follow.
Duncan Edwards was extremely highly rated - a future superstar of the game, if only ?

Duncan was a Dudley man and brought up on the Priory, attended Wolverhampton St Secondary Modern. Buried in his home town of Dudley and he has a statue there in his honour. Football fans still visit the cemetery and statue.
