Geoff Merrick brilliant diving header ..... OG 🙄

Stood in the East End we could sense what was going to happen so all shouted "leave it Geoff". Wonderful game for neutrals though. 2-0 up, 2-2 HT, 2-4 down but drew 4-4. At 3-4 when Peter Cormack came on, we realised we can  draw this.

They were brilliant if I remember correctly. Wrexham had a great team back then with players such as Dixie McNeil and Mickey Thomas so it was no surprise to lose the replay.

Yeah, we were at the back of the East End. I remember being so excited about getting a draw that we were definitely going to the replay. By the time we got home we had 2nd thoughts, and as the replay was 2 days later and a Monday we thought better of it.
Glad when I heard the score.

A wise decision. It wasn`t the best away day I`ve ever had!

Something very weird for me surrounding the game though. I wasn`t able to get a programme for some reason and it annoyed me for years as it was a gap in my collection. Imagine my surprise when, a few years later, I found a copy in Bury`s programme shop in a box of random programmes on the counter!

I could be wrong but think a certain Dixie McNeil did us a lot of damage 

He scored in both games but Bobby Shinton and Mickey Thomas were the standout players for Wrexham.

Talking of Dixie McNeil, John Sillett wanted the club to sign him on while he was playing for Lincoln, but Alan Dicks And Tony Collins rejected it. The on going dispute was the reason Sillett left the club.

I'd forgotten it was 2 days later on the Monday, but I didn't think better of it and went up anyway.

Terrible night, especially as I'd only been there a couple of months earlier to see Wrexham knock us out of the League Cup as well.

I must admit I had to check, thought there was longer between the games. 

Mad that now you'd have to wait a week or two for a replay.

I srill relate them to knocking Arsenal out of the FA cup, that was 30 years ago now!

I was there that day with my late Father, who was Wrexham born and bred. We were at home to Wimbledon. So glad I chose the Wrexham match, however I drove to Selhurst park to watch us beat Wimbledon in the replay. B5F23EEB-DE22-42D2-83D5-B1BDA87AE5CF.thumb.jpeg.4d7b2633f5e38d476cf9208b3088873b.jpeg

Ha ha, I had to check it too after originally starting my reply with. 'surely the replay was midweek?'

In those days I was City mad enough to rearrange just about anything at short notice to get to the games.

Swapped home and away ends for this game so Swindle are up the other end for this one. 
 

We did ask for the normal away end but they didn't want to give us 4000 tickets as that would limit the home capacity

So luton fell out of the league in 2010 and got promotion back into the league in 2014. 8 seasons later they are in the Championship playoffs. In all the that time our best finish is an 8th placed finish. Very frustrating and cant help feeling a bit jealous.
