Steve Roberts was a great centre half too, his ability on the ball was brilliant.

I didn’t realise Holmes played so much that season.

Good times.
Me too, was at uni and my house was literally 1 minute from the away end. I heard a lot about Steve Flack from my housemates that night.

Cracking team, Morrell was phenomenal that year and Fergie wasn't Peter Ward but he was still quality, with Smith getting the right formation and system for the players. Carlos and Paul were so dangerous as wing backs.

We then went 14 games unbeaten to the end of the season to get automatic promotion playing truly wonderful football.
I didn't go, but I remember Dave Lovett's report in the Leader, where he concluded by writing about 'the sad sight of Wrexham fans disappearing into the night' as they walked away from the ground. That has stuck with me ever since, summing up the feelings after defeat in a night game a long way from home.

The promotion season were excellent times but don't forget we did have 2 relegations under Denis.

I'll never forget travelling to Oxford around this time, possibly a season before this. It was one hell of a game at their old Manor ground.(What a crazy ground that was) We beat them 4-3, brilliant game and there was a picture of me and a few mates climbing the fences at the end in the evening leader.

Anyway, it was the game Steve Roberts broke his leg. Horrible that was, very similar to Wayne's break at Ssilly billyhorpe, I also witnessed.

Great days though. Soon to return.

So hard to leave out Morrell, Watkin, Phil Hardy and Mile Lake . The only weak link in either team was Mark Morris.
Imagine having that team today.....

I sat and watched the whole of the LDV final on YouTube today,what struck me was we had some players who could play football and not hoofball, and passed the ball on the ground and towards the opposing goal,not seen that much in the last 10 years at the racecourse.

Yes it was, you're right. Great game that. We went on the club bus, there was only one. If you were on the bus you might remember a pissed up bloke on the bus with an Elvis mask, he sang the whole way back!

What a team that was. We were better than Swansea back then. Wyne Rooney scored his first senior goal against us in there too.
