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 First Round First Leg match against Petrolul Ploiesti at the Racecourse on 10-08-95 . The game ended 0-0.
After lifting the Welsh Cup at Cardiff Arms Park, this was to be Wrexham’s last-ever campaign in Europe due to the fact that the club plied its trade in the English Football League. The good folk at UEFA had suddenly decided that teams that did not play in the national league of the country of origin would no longer be able to compete for the relevant national cup – in our case the Welsh Cup.
The chapter goes on to summarise the match against Petrolul Ploiesti and our season in full as each chapter in Dirty Old Town does. This creates the ideal gift for all true Wrexham fans.
