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 Workington at the Racecourse on 24/10/53. Wrexham ran out 8-0 winners on a glorious afternoon…
After pushing for promotion to the Second Division the season previously, Wrexham flattered to deceive during 1953/54. Prior to this home clash with Workington, the Reds had gone a month without a victory – Bradford City (0-1), Chester (1-2), York City (1-1) and Scunthorpe and Lindsey United (1-3) – and had slumped to 9th in the league table. Crowds were also beginning to dwindle. Indeed, this was to be the smallest attendance of the season so far.
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.
