Wrexham 3 Oldham 1 August 21st 1971. My aunt was going to the catholic cathedral from Holywell and I was commissioned to accompany her in the Morris minor. I suggested that I go to the match while she went to her cathedral. It was love at first sight.
Home to Rotherham in 78 and my dad saying after the game ‘you missed a few chances’
Birmingham away was very special but Boston home was the most emotional as it was also my best mates 50th.

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.

I feel slightly more mature today so here goes with a couple..

Hartlepool 4 - 6 Wrexham - A game I'll never forget. So glad I was there to witness that madness. What a game of football that was.

This game: BBC SPORT | Football | Oldham 3-5 Wrexham
Mark Jones was unplayable that night. Another classic but typical Wrexham we gave them a lifeline.

Then there was the LDV final itself. Probably the last great day out watching Wrexham. The FAT trophy just wasn't the same for me.

Nothing from non league. Its all been shit.

Probably not my most favourite Wrexham memory, but never the less a great night out.

LDV vans semi final first leg vs Oldham where we won 5-3. The atmosphere in the away end that night was fantastic.

I remember we went 5-1 up at one stage after Ugarte scored a hat trick, but then we gave them that lifeline by conceding two late goals, including a controversial penalty. I remember also Foster made a super save right at the end to avoid a 5-4 score line.

First time I really believed we could get to the final that year.
Prior to that I was thinking Wrexham would cock it up as they usually did.

I think there was 126 of us at Hartlepool and I unintentionally kept my ticket. A few years later ugarte was a guest of the club on a match day so I thought I’d get him to sign it. When I couldn’t find it I asked the missus if she’d seen it and she said “ oh I threw it away “

Yes there wasn't a huge following that day, I seem to remember not expecting anything from the game, especially when they took the lead.

She's now an ex missus, right?

For moments of ecstasy you can't beat a last minute winner.

Beating Ipswich Town when they were in the top flight in the FA Cup - they had equalised quite near the end to make the tie 1 - 1.
Then in the dying embers of the game we got a penalty at the kop end.
You just knew Gary Bennett would create something magical - he dispatched the penalty and we won 2 - 1 to send us to Old Trafford in the next round.
The week after we beat Ipswich in the cup they went to Anfield and beat Liverpool 0 - 1 in the league so logically, we were better than Liverpool at the time.

Similarly - being 2 - 0 down in the league at Walsall and second half kicking towards our fans making a massive comeback and getting the winner in the last minute or so through Craig Faulconbridge to make it 2 - 3 - the Walsall balti pies were special too.
