Over the coming weeks, I will be adding a match programme for each of the games that I have focused on in Dirty Old Town.
This is the programme from the League Division Three (Northern Section) match against York City at the Racecourse on 13/01/51. Wrexham won the match 4-3.
It took 20 minutes for Wrexham to open the scoring when Cyril Lawrence delivered a corner to the unmarked Billy Tunnicliffe who didn’t need asking twice to put the Reds in the lead. Frank Fidler had a chance to increase the lead with a flashing header, but it was the visitors who struck next as the game reached the half-hour mark. Alf Patrick (29) made the most of Wrexham’s defensive shortcomings to equalise, albeit totally against the run of play.
You can find out what happened in the second half by purchasing a copy of Dirty Old Town.
The chapter goes on to summarise our season at this level – cups and all – as each chapter in Dirty Old Town does. This creates the ideal gift for all true Wrexham fans.
