Will there be singing in the valleys? Wrexham home thread.

Have to declare an interest in this. My great great great granddad Tom Heath played for Wrexham in their first match in 1864. In fact he came from a military town in Wiltshire. He was also a local rifle champion.

That's on my Mum's side. My Dad's second cousin Dave Gaskell was Wrexham's goalie in the 1970s. He'd played for Manchester United before that.

I loved Paul Mullin but at 49 isn't he a bit old to be playing at this level?

I think I have my answer!

Goal! Accrington Stanley 2, Wrexham 0. Rosaire Longelo (Accrington Stanley) left footed shot from very close range.

At 16 years and 19 days he is their youngest ever first teamer - in the 1956 Charity Shield final. Brought on to play from the crowd.

Paul Mullin misses a penalty at the end. Time to finally hang up his boots methinks.

Great result! But there may well still be singing in the valleys, given South Walians don’t much like their northern countrymen ��.
