to be fair everyone contributed to saving Wrexham not just wst members, i know many people who put substantial amounts in and have never been members including myself,
from the season John Neal took over and throughout the seventies we had some excellant attendances, for big games, it was from 76/77 onwards that attendances were substantial,
in the eighties, if memory serves we got relegated three seasons on the run and our attendances plummeted in line with that.
Since the seventies the population of the Wrexham district has increased as has Flintshire and Denbighshire, there are still fans in most north Wales towns and many mid Wales towns, we have a unique situation which could be tapped, however it will mean success on the pitch, Wrexham can attract far more fans than any given town/city of a similar size and that is why we need to thanks the Wst for their efforts and welcome in new owners

Your memories playing tricks with you we went from division 2 to division 4 in Old money so 2 relegations in succession.

Mitigating circumstances :

We had sold almost everyone as we were going bust

We were getting relegated

Everyone's crowds were poor due to high unemployment and thousands stayed away due to regular violence on the terraces.

Spot on. We are a proper football club, they are tinpot no marks.

How would a tinpot football club go about becoming a “proper” club? Is it even allowed? I’m assuming all proper clubs were determined many years ago....

yes, its allowed - by working their way up the leagues and growing the fan base organically. Thats the key to it, and the measure of it - size of fanbase.

Careful what you wish for. Are we the next Salford or..... Macclesfield?
