I saw that earlier. Fair play to them, proper club and proper fans. Some of my cousins/uncles/aunties among them. And I'll always have a soft spot for them- last time I saw them in a cuptie it was the famous 77/78 FA Cup 5th round replay v Wrexham at St James', the team of miners that lost heroically 2-1 having knocked out Chesterfield and Stoke along the way, 50000 in the ground and another 10000 locked out. Was actually the match that made me fall in love with this game. If that first season of watching football had been exclusively occupied with watching Newcastle get relegated with utter ignominy from the old Division One then I probably wouldn't be here now.
I've also harboured a deep loathing for Wrexham ever since.
