I'll throw in beating Cloughie's Forest 3-1 in the FA Cup; Durkin scoring to put us one up at United (again in the FA Cup); Beating Chesterfield 6-0 in the best all-round display I've seen (Ashcroft scored 4) - all these away from home!

Top three in reverse order -
Cheesy's equaliser against Brighton at their place
King Karl sealing the 3-1 Cup win at Birmingham

and the winner, Noddy's equaliser v Arsenal, absolute bedlam

Oh so many cup wins...Arsenal has to forever be my number one with my dad and grandad either side of me as a 9 year old sat in the Yale...I’ll take it to my grave! Brum away was super special, as was West Ham away. Middlesbrough at home and West Ham at home in the snow!! Got to add Wembley and Cardiff victories in cup finals..a few Wembley lows offset it though. Brentford away was magic. Going 1-0 up at Old Trafford...

Luton away when we lost but the chant of ‘We’re proud of you!’ just made the hairs stand up and was more emotional than most games I’ve ever witnessed. It was a true ‘I’m Wrexham til I die’ moment due to the camaraderie on display and the true love and dedication for a team.

The day I was a ball boy at Cae Ras having not expected it when I arrived at the ground for a league game vs Rotherham when we had a wooden stand on the Mold Road...the roar when we scored was immense at pitch level, again hairs on end. Getting the ball from behind the cladding just seemed strange as the old stand was still there and it felt so spooky to see such a wonderful piece of our history empty when the game was going on.

The day we almost disappeared from existence and kids with piggy banks and deeds to properties turned up to aid the cause. Only Wrexham fans would manage what we did that day...proven by Bury recently (very sadly I add!).

Thanks for setting up this thread...needed to be reminded of the good times!!

It was a massive game at the time as we were running neck and neck for bottom spot and relegation - think ex Ipswich Town and England full back Mick Mills was the manager of Colchester United at the time.

Also whilst talking about Colchester - the season we gained promotion mid week by winning 0 - 2 at Northampton - the following Saturday we played our final league game at home to Colchester - nearly 10,000 there to see us win in an enthralling match 4 - 3 with a late Steve Watkin winner in the kop end.
Colour, scarves, ticker tape - game played in an electric atmosphere and on the pitch at the final whistle in our thousands.

We truly did have some magical times under the reign of Brian Flynn.
Great post mate! A forgotten classic.

Very big gate at the time 4600.

It was the lull after the Dixie Leyton Orient play off defeat when we were getting 2000 tops. Bad times.

The start of the Flynn rebuild.

Every generation has their special moments.

I never saw the classic 70/80s teams people rave about. Old Div 2, European nights and Jim Steel 😀

But I saw the Leyton Orient play off game. Saw the fa cup antics and a promotion to old div 3 and Ian rush debut. And Lyngby, our Porto 😬

The next generation just know the fallout from the Hamilton, M0ss era.

Still some good memories tho.

Staying up v Boston
Getting Wrexham conference tour t shirts 13 years ago. Won 5-1.
Fa trophy. Both games memorable 😬
98 point season team
That vose goal.
Stoke
Salford

We will be back

My mistake. Made the schoolboy error of ‘copying and pasting’ duff gen off the web without checking all the details. I’ll use Pete Jones’s definitive book and update the team tomorrow.

With a few, notable exceptions, our collective memory of our great club may be fading with age, but the passion is still there and will, I am sure, rekindle when this horrible trial is over.

Keep posting, guys and gals. Really enjoying the memories.

Then on the 6th March, we played Arsenal at home again in front of 25.500 and got robbed with a 2-3 loss in the FA Cup.

Where did it all go wrong.
Great game against Liverpool, Dalglish hat trick on a typical 70s pitch https://youtu.be/1hVNSsAzO1w

Cup win at Southampton great goal by Smallman. A poster asked about film of him playing. As lots of fans will know he went to Everton for a lot of money. I remember seeing him on TV in "match of the day" (or its equivalent) scoring a great goal for the blues. It went right in the top corner and Bob Latchford nearly crushed him in the celebration. Sadly injury ended his career prematurely. Other great memories Trophy win what wonderful support that day. Arsenal win of course. I missed the game because I was away on holiday. I can still remember buying a paper on the ferry coming home. I could not believe it when I saw the result. Young's volley to score this season. Joe Allen's screamer when he was on loan with us. BTW thanks for this thread among all the doom and gloom it is a refreshing change.

Remembering Ian Edwards fantastic strike at Derby in 1980/81 season

https://youtu.be/Fj3-KLm11Ec

Those were the days when Match of the Day also showed games outside the top division.

I couldn't believe how well we played, I practically floated home thinking we could beat anybody...

Then 'accidentally' forgetting my PE kit and strolling out of the changing room in my Wrexham shirt, scarf and hat two days later with all the Wolves, WBA and Villa fans pishing themselves laughing At least my teacher admitted we deserved the win, although he mostly blamed Devlin for being sent off

You have a good memory, Dave Smallman’s first goal for Everton against Sheffield United https://youtu.be/FHV-PfV9F_U on The Big Match. A natural striker who was blighted by injuries.
