Except that I was one of them , I got my ticket from Anfield as I was living and working in Liverpool in those days , had to keep quiet though.

First time I can remember the Kop being taken over was 26th September 1970 when Aston Villa beat us 3-2 in a League Division 3 match. The attendance was 18,335.

In the 70s both home and away supporters would occupy the kop on many occasions, can remember chester Cardiff port Vale and many others.

Same could be said for the tech end as well. It would look full of away supporters and then we would score and you could see loads of Wrexham fans jumping up and down in there.

I also remember away fans sitting in the top tier, and the lower tier being standing for home fans in the very early 90s

What a day that was! The Sunderland fans didn't take too kindly to us on the Kop taking the piss and headed straight for us - fortunately the fences were still in place, and it was before the ground level was raised, so when they got on the fence they realised they had a 10 - 12 foot drop the other side. Ended up a bit like the Foinavon fence at Aintree
Must admit I broke all records heading for home along Crispin Lane though!

The Hereford fans definitely occupied the central area under the Pigeon loft, with Wrexham fans fuming and plotting revenge attacks from the periphery. I think it calmed down second half.
