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 Football League Playoffs Final (2nd Leg) match against Leyton Orient at Brisbane Road on 03-06-89. The game ended 2-1 to Leyton Orient.
7,915 were present at the Racecourse to witness a cagey goalless draw, in the first leg of the play-off final. This set up a do or die encounter at Brisbane Road.
Both teams were unchanged from the first leg, and Wrexham were quick out of the blocks. After just four minutes, Russell’s corner was headed back across goal by Geoff Hunter to set up Kearns whose overhead kick tested Paul Heald in the Os’ goal.
The chapter goes on to summarise the match against Leyton Orient and our season in full as each chapter in Dirty Old Town does. This creates the ideal gift for all true Wrexham fans.
