DENIS Smith paid tribute to the Wrexham fans who saw his side make a winning start to League Two.
A healthy 4,503 watched as the Dragons opened their account with a 2-0 win over Boston United.
Although in the past, Smith has not been slow to urge more fans to get down to the Racecourse, he was delighted with Saturday's attendance
He said: 'It was a tremendous turnout. Given that so many people will be on holiday at the moment, it was to great to get 4,500 here.
'With the greatest respect to Boston, it's not like a match say against Chester, where you'd expect it to be full, so I was delighted. They got behind us and were extremely good.'
Smith will hope for a similar turnout again for Wrexham's Saturday trip to Northampton Town.
As the Mail was going to press, the Reds were preparing for Tuesday's visit to Notts County.
The victory over Boston lifted Wrexham to the top of the table, albeit after just one game, and it was the kind of performance that shows why they are up there among the bookies' favourites.
But this Saturday's opponents Northampton Town are another team heavily tipped, having made the play-offs for the last two years.
In Andy Kirk they have one of the division's best strikers, while boss Colin Calderwood has bolstered an already strong squad with the likes of Eoin Jess and Ian Taylor.
But Smith is quietly confident his men can match any side in the division.
He said: 'My ambition at the start of this season was to win the league. That's not changed but it's only one game.
