Default Re: New RP'ers Introduce Yourselves...

Evening Rob and all

Have been a voyeur of RP for years and now forced to come out of the closet.

Been a fan since 1966 when my Dad took me and my twin brother (we were both 7 years old funnily enough) into the old paddock to watch the mighty reds lose 1 v 3 to Notts County on the way to finishing 92nd in the Football League (which idiot scrapped the re-election system?) and been well and truly hooked ever since. A couple of seasons later when my brother asked my Dad who the “bloke wearing black” played for we both knew that the “Wrexham gene” had somehow passed him by and that I had inherited his share as well. I also bear the name of my Dads favourite Reds centre half from the Fifties.

So many favourite players over the years….Sammy McMillan scored the first Reds goal I saw so he’s one but I tended to love the “triers” who, whilst not the most naturally gifted, always gave 100% so the likes of Eddie May, Steve Ingle, Phil Hardy, Tony Humes, Deryn Brace, Neil Ashton and (because they were Buckleyites) John Lyons and Mike Williams and, of course, Joey because… well he’s Joey.

Best moments? Well apart from the obvious ones…mine would include the Eddie May “screamer” from the half way line (tried doing the same in a schools match and, as my effort hit the corner flag, the PE teacher bawled out “who do you think you are Eddie May!”) Any Wrexham goal at Sealand Road (seem to recall plenty from Arfon) and also (because I was with Stockport fans from work) a fantastic Peter Ward free kick at Edgeley Park after they had been abusing him something awful. I also recall screaming at the radio (much to the annoyance of my then girlfriend who was at that very moment supposed to be the focus of my “attention” as it were ) as the Reds held out for a goalless draw at Real Zaragoza (how we didn’t win the replay god only knows).

So plenty of ups and downs but despite being marooned (for now) in this dreadful league we are still here…alive and kicking!

First post was a few days ago to mark the passing of Les Speed who I watched starring for Holywell Town as a kid. Been following the Reds since '61 - first match we were 4 up against Darlington after about 20 minutes - beat that for a start. So many favourite players over the years - Neil Ashton of the current crop. I'll go for Billy Ashcroft, though Arfon was the long term class act. Best game the 7 -1 win over Rotherham to clinch the long overdue promotion to the old Div 2. Let's go up as champions again this year.

I'm kinda pissed off that we have to sign in to read threads now (don't want people to know how much of a sad-act I am, plus I don't like the idea in general to be honest), but if means some good posting lurkers come out of the shadows then it may be good in that respect.

I am not keen on the idea, however this thread is the silver lining so long may such silver linings continue

Keep the intros coming....

Newport County fan in peace. Had a sneaky regard for you ever since... yeah you've guessed it, the Arsenal game. I regularly look in but never posted because it's , well, er, yourforum.
Promise that if I ever post again that it will not be fishing or a wind-up. If one of us gets out of this division it'll be easier to look for your results with more enthusiasm, .
Meanwhile, I'll simply be looking through the keyhole
All the best guys, unless............

Hi all, 1st time poster.

First ever game was a free ticket given out in the 83-84 season when players came around to local schools to draw us in. Remember the European nights against Porto and Roma the following season too. Was hooked from then on. Arsenal is an obvious biggy, along with the cup matches at Peterborough and Birmingham, but also remember trips down to Plymouth to see us score 4 and still lose (lost 4-2, two own goals - I seem to remember Tony Hume being stamped on by fat f**k Mickey Quinn that match as well, and Craig Skinner having a blinder for Plymouth that day - which is probably why we signed him)

Favourite current players are Glen (sheer class - and was also really nice to the missus at the Sports Relief run at Ty Mawr), and Beast.

All time favourite player? Way, way too many to mention. Shall we sum it up in the medium of song??

**CLEARS THROAT**
Marriott gives the ball to Hardy
Hardy out to Peter Ward.
Peter Ward to Connolly.
Connolly down the wing, nobody can stop him.
Puts the ball in the air
To Super Stevie Watkin...

Onwards and upwards now though - here's too getting behind the lads this season.

In Morrell we must trust - he'll do the job for us.
