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 FA Cup Third Round match against West Ham United at Upton Park on 03-01-81. The game ended in a 1-1 draw.
1981 began with a tasty cup-tie against FA Cup holders West Ham United, who had lifted the famous trophy the previous May, thanks to a Trevor Brooking diving header against Arsenal. The Hammers were a Second Division side when they won the Cup and were aiming to follow their Cup success with promotion back to Division One. In November 1980, they had visited the Racecourse to play out a 2-2 draw.
The chapter goes on to summarise the match against West Ham United and our season in full as each chapter in Dirty Old Town does. This creates the ideal gift for all true Wrexham fans.
