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 European Cup Winner’s Cup Round 1 (2nd leg) match against FC Zurich at the Racecourse on 27-09-72. The game ended 2-1 win for Wrexham.
Third Division Wrexham made their European debut against FC Zurich at the Stadion Letzigrund in Switzerland. The match finished all-square with Albert Kinsey (48) scoring our first goal in Europe, just a minute after Fritz Kunzli had opened the scoring for the home side.
The Swiss Cup winners were involved in their seventh European campaign. In 1964 they had reached the European Cup semi-finals and four years later they made the last eight of the UEFA Cup. Their team included four Swiss internationals and their player-manager Timo Konietzka, was a former West German international. The return leg at the Racecourse would certainly be a test.
The chapter goes on to summarise the match against FC Zurich and our season in full as each chapter in Dirty Old Town does. This creates the ideal gift for all true Wrexham fans.
