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 Nationwide League Division Two match against Macclesfield Town at the Racecourse on 05-09-98 . The game ended 2-1 to Wrexham.
After the embarrassment of a 4-0 defeat at Gillingham, we entertained Macclesfield Town at the Racecourse. It was the first time the clubs had met since the Cheshire club gained promotion from the Conference with an eight-point margin in 1996/97.
A disappointing attendance of 3,384 can be explained by the fact that Wales were playing Italy in a Euro 2000 qualifier at Anfield later that evening, but those supporters who put club before country were rewarded in the fifth minute when Gareth Owen fired home a looping effort that seemed to wrong foot Ryan Price in the visitor’s goal.
The chapter goes on to summarise the match against Macclesfield Town and our season in full as each chapter in Dirty Old Town does. This creates the ideal gift for all true Wrexham fans.
