Dirty Old Town: 22-08-78

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 Two match against Fulham at Craven Cottage on 22-08-78. The game ended with a 0-1 win for Wrexham.

Any review of this match must focus on the concerning head-injury suffered by Mickey Evans, mid-way through the opening period. Evans was knocked unconscious, as he challenged for an aerial ball with Fulham winger John Evanson. There was a sickening crack of heads between both players and Evans was out-cold, while Evanson was left in a daze and suffered double-vision. A doctor was called to assist from the crowd as concern spread. Town physio George Showell, worked with ambulance men, but failed to revive Evans.

The chapter goes on to summarise the match against Fulham and our season in full as each chapter in Dirty Old Town does. This creates the ideal gift for all true Wrexham fans.
