Wrexham FC 1977-78
A unique opportunity to relive the greatest season in Wrexham FC’s long history.
Having narrowly missed promotion the previous season, Manager
Arfon Griffiths strengthened the team by signing Dixie McNeil and
Dai Davies – with improvments such as these, the new line-up was
to prove a formidable side, and the
scene was thus set for Wrexham’s finest hour.
Incorporating interviews with many of the stars of the day Gareth
Davies, Dixie McNeil, Bobby Shinton, Mickey Thomas and Graham
Whittle and rare archive footage of many of the Club’s most exciting
matches such as the League thrillers against Tranmere Rovers 6-1,
and the Rotherham 7-1 thrashing – which resulted in Wrexham’s
promotion to the Second Division; the FA Cup spectaculars against
Bristol, Newcastle, Blyth Spartans and the valiant 6th round clash
withArsenal; Beating Bangor for the Welsh Cup; and the League
Cup Quater Final against Liverpool which drew over 25,000 fans
to the ‘Racecourse’.
