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 Four match against Notts County at the Racecourse on 22/08/64. Wrexham won the game 4-0.Notts County were the only club to finish below Wrexham in the third tier during the disastrous 1963/64 season and were in something of a tailspin. Crowds at Meadow Lane had dwindled to around the 3,000-mark, Forest had established themselves as the dominant team in Nottingham and the County chairman had been voted off the board. It seemed as if things couldn’t get much worse for the Magpies, but as the new season dawned, any attempts to restore pride were hindered by an injury list that included no fewer than seven players.
The chapter goes on to summarise the match against Notts County, 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.Order your copy from nathanleedavies.com/shop today.
