WREXHAM fans are turning back the clock 30 years with a reunion tomorrow evening of the management and players involved in the club's magnificent run to the quarter-finals of the 1976 European Cup-Winners Cup tournament.
It was a fantastic experience for me to be part of that superb team, even though I missed the climax when our journey came to the end at the hands of Belgian side Anderlecht, who went on to lift the trophy by beating West Ham United 5-1 in the final.
In view of that one-sided result, Wrexham's achievement in only going down 2-1 on aggregate to the talented Belgians says a lot about the quality and spirit at the Racecourse in those days.
We did well to hold them to a 1-0 defeat in Brussels and we were very confident, but unfortunately I was forced to miss the second leg at a packed Racecourse because I was in hospital with an infection.
Nevertheless Stuart Lee's goal made the aggregate level and it was only late in the game that Dutch international Robbie Rensenbrink broke clear to equalise and ensure Anderlecht's progress to the semis.
Needless to say I'm hoping to get along to the Centenary Club tomorrow.
There are still some tickets left at £10 (including a hot-pot supper) which can be reserved by e-mailing member@ wafc123.freeserve.co.uk
