The problem is many of the younger fans have never had the opportunity to see the likes of Ally and many other great players play.

If anyone wants to have a secretarial legend Cliff Lloyd would be head and shoulders above anyone else. He was also both Secretary and Manager for a spell. He put a decent team together resulting in our highest ever capacity crowd v Man U.

He was also a one of the most pleasant and decent men I have ever met.

The club's back office was far more efficient back then than it ever has been under the WST.

Cliff Sear is another who deserves some recognition.

The list is lengthy, so we could maybe name blocks of seats after them!

A permanent tribute to John Neal is a priority.

Absolutely spot on. Nearly all my fond memories were due to this modest but great person, who transformed our club into something way beyond what could ever be realistically expected.

Some great memories of his time at the helm. Like me, I am sure John would love someone even better than himself to pitch up at the Racecourse to better his achievements. Our younger fans deserve the opportunity to see great football from a Wrexham team and, to be honest, we older buggers need something to refresh our ageing memories, too!

If and when the kop is redeveloped, it would be so appropriate to name it after John Neal. Fingers crossed, eh!

And that's what it's all about PD, creating memories. John Neal created those for your generation, and only Flynn created them for my generation. Two real, proper legends in every sense of the word who have left their mark on the club.

So that's two stands taken care of. Surely Joey gets a stand leaving one up for grabs, because it's about time for another legend to come along. It's been far too long.

Our greatest player, to my mind without question, - Arfon Griffiths.
It's a great pity the relationship seems to have soured. Maybe the new regime can put things right.

Hope so, too.
