Wrexham had gone 13 games without defeat, but the run had come too late for honours, and only a crowd of 3, were at the Racecourse. Ray Smith put Wrexham ahead in the first minute, got a second in the 68th minute, after Alderton had equalised and Albert Kinsey made it 3v1 two minutes from time. Wrexham; Livesey, Bermingham. Powell, Davis sub. He played 6 games for Wrexham, his last one was on the 6th September, when they lost1v0 at Southend.

Wrexham reserves won 4v0 against Llandudno. In my time at Wrexham if we go by the old numbering routine I played in every position on the field from right back to outside left. Yes happy days at Wrexham a great band of brothers so to speak. My one regret at Wrexham is that I never got to play with John Neal who in my opinion was the most knowledgeable of all the staff in matters relating to football while I was at the club.

He arrived at The Racecourse on a wave of enthusiasm and appeared to be on the threshold of success until he announced the sale of Mielczarek. Disappointment among the general body of followers was reflected in the decision of the Supporter's Association to write a letter of protest to the Club following the transfers of Powell and Stacey. They wanted the board to reconsider the policy of parting with players who, in the Associaition's view, were needed to gain promotion. Sammy McMillan played for Wrexham at the same time as Steve. He picked this team as the one he'd like to lead out.

Gaskell, Stacey , Wall, G. Davis, Showell, Barnes, A. His Ipswich debut was at home to Liverpool, but only played a couple more games for them. His injury problem didn't help. In he went a month's loan to Chester, making one league appearance. This was followed by another loan spell - to Charlton Athletic, where he scored in his only game, a 2v1 defeat at home to Huddersfield Town. Steve stayed at Ipswich until September , when he returned to Bristol City.

My time at Ipswich wasn't what I expected. I can recall a training session at Wrexham on the Thursday before I travelled down. Slight pull on the left hamstring. So on my debut against Liverpool the hamstring snapped after 20 mins and that as they say was that. It was a grade three injury the worse and I never truly recovered. I would estimate that in all my time at Ipswich half of it was spent on the treatment table with this hamstring. Bill McGarry right signed me, he left after a month or two and Bobby Robson arrived.

Clearly not one of Bob's favoured people and it didn't work. Ipswich were very unlucky to lose this game, having his a vein of top form. New signing Steve Stacey was lost through injury during the game. In the thirtieth minute he went down injured and was replaced at left half by Morris. Three minutes into the second half Liverpool took the lead, much against the run of play, when Graham stabbed the ball in following a rebound from Callaghan's shot. Sub; Peter Morris. John, Peter Thompson.

Ipswich's new signing out for fortnight? I've pulled something in my left thigh. It could be the hamstring. In almost every aspect this was a repeat of home defeats against Arsenal and Leeds. Ipswich showed the fire and finesse the First Division demands, shared a magnificent match Bobby Graham and Ian St. John were the Liverpool scorers. Ian Callaghan and Peter Thompson were their stars.

But nothing Liverpool did could overshadow the excellence of Ipswich skipper Danny Hegan. He gave an outstanding display - confirming his right to rank among the game's best midfield men. Southampton's Kemp was the first to have his name taken after a bad tackle, and Walker suffered the same fate for a similar offence against Stacey. For a moment it seemed as though a stretcher would be required, but the Ipswich man made a quick recovery. In a frantic end to the game, the visitors came close to scoring twice.

Ipswich were never really in this game as Thompson 13mins and Graham 40 gave them a comfortable lead going into the break. Graham netted his second on 66 minutes and St. John closed the scoring in the last minute. This was one of the games Steve missed through injury. He'd played one first team game and a match with the reserves. Steve played at right back against Sheffield United on his second debut for Bristol City in a 3v3 draw.

He played another 8 games before seeing the season out with the reserve side. As a free agent in August , Steve signed for Exeter City. The Rangers squad was: Kennedy.

Archie made his debut for the club in this match, in which Harbeston scored Wrexham's goal in a 1v1 draw against Bury who were third. This result extended Wrexham's unbeaten run to 5 ma tches. Wrexham finished in 23rd place this season, and were relegated to the Fourth Division, despite winning the Welsh Cup, beating Cardiff City 1v0 in a replay, with a young Arfon Griffiths netting the winner.

Wrexham's manager Ken Barnes wrote in the programme;When the bad weather came upon usat the turn of the year we were in quite a handy position in the League. A defeat of Coventry City aand we were really in with a chance. The came the biggest disappointment since I have been at the club. The next five matches brought us nine points and we are now seventh.

Wrexham had beaten Luton Town 2v0 Arfon Griffiths and Mickey Metcalf the scorers in their previous match, which had ended a run of 12 games without a win, 11 of them being straight defeats.

A personality who can play. I also believe that the headline on the back page of the Wrexham Leader saying something like 'Wrexham lose to Leeds United but put 4 goals past the mighty Leeds'. I remember Steve Fleet being in goal and kicking Billy Bremner in the backside in a jovial way inside the six yard box.

I cannot recall. It really saddens me to think of their current plight in the Blue Square Premier League. West Ham were the current F.

The replay was a 0 v 0 draw at The Racecourse, resulting in those days in a second replay which was also held at The Racecourse.

Mold Grammar School Derek captained the school side, where he played both in goal and as an outfield player.

Evans, M. Evans, D. Charlton developed a new ploy for the —68 season by standing next to the goalkeeper during corners to prevent him from coming out to collect the ball; this created havoc for opposition defences and is still a frequently used tactic in the modern era. They finally won major honours though by beating Arsenal 1—0 in the final of the League Cup ; Terry Cooper scored the only goal of the game despite allegations that Charlton pushed goalkeeper Jim Furnell in the build up to the goal. Charlton helped Leeds to their first ever Football League title in —69 , as they lost just two games to finish six points clear of second-place Liverpool.

They secured the title with a goalless draw at Anfield on 28 April, and Charlton later recalled the Liverpool supporters affectionately called him "big dirty giraffe" and that manager Bill Shankly went into the Leeds dressing room after the match to tell them they were "worthy champions". United opened the —70 campaign by winning the Charity Shield with a 2—1 win over Manchester City , and went on to face realistic possibility of winning the treble — the league, FA Cup and European Cup. Charlton took responsibility for Peter Osgood 's goal in the replay as he was distracted from marking duties as he was trying to get revenge on a Chelsea player who had kicked him.

Charlton caused controversy early in the —71 season as in an October appearance on the Tyne Tees football programme, he said he'd once had a "little black book" of names of players whom he intended to hurt or exact some form of revenge upon during his playing days. Leeds finished second in the —72 season for the third successive time, this time ending up just one point behind champions Derby County after losing to Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux on the final day of the season.

Charlton was limited to 25 appearances in the —73 campaign and suffered an injury in the FA Cup semi-final against Wolves which ended his season. After failing to regain his fitness for the final, he announced his retirement. Madeley played in his place but Gordon McQueen had been signed as his long-term replacement. With Charlton approaching his 30th birthday, he was called up by Alf Ramsey to play for England against Scotland at Wembley on 10 April England opened the year of on 5 January with a 1—1 draw with Poland at Goodison Park ; Ramsey's managerial ability was demonstrated during the game as the equalising goal came from Bobby Moore, who was allowed to surge forward as Charlton covered the gap he left behind in defence.

The run started with impressive victories over West Germany and then Scotland in front of , fans at Hampden Park. England drew 0—0 in their opening group game of the World Cup against Uruguay after the South Americans came to play for a draw. West Germany awaited in the final at Wembley , and they took the lead through Helmut Haller on 12 minutes; Charlton felt that he could have blocked the shot but at the time he believed that Banks had it covered, though it was Wilson who was at fault for allowing Haller the chance to shoot. After the World Cup England lost the annual Home Championship to Scotland after a 3—2 defeat in April , Charlton scored for the second successive international game running after also finding the net against Wales the previous November.

He won five caps in , helping England to a memorable 5—0 win over France and scoring in a 1—0 win over Portugal from a corner taken by his brother Bobby. However, he favoured Labone over Charlton and only picked Charlton for his 35th and final England game in the 1—0 group win over Czechoslovakia at the Estadio Jalisco. England lost in the quarter finals to West Germany, and on the flight home, Charlton asked Ramsey not to be considered for international duty again. Charlton agonised over how to break the news to Ramsey, and eventually said: "Great times He was offered the job as manager of Second Division club Middlesbrough on his 38th birthday in He declined to be interviewed for the position, and instead handed the club a list of responsibilities he expected to take, which if agreed to would give him total control of the running of the club.

Charlton took advice from Celtic manager Jock Stein , who allowed him to sign right-sided midfielder Bobby Murdoch on a free transfer. Some of these players were already settled at the club and in their positions, whilst Charlton had to work with some of the other players. He moved Souness from left midfield to central midfield to compensate for his lack of pace and coached him to play the ball forward rather than side to side as was his instinct. The "Boro" secured promotion with seven games still to play of the —74 season, and Charlton actually told his team to settle for a point away at Luton Town so they could win the title at home but his players ignored his instruction to concede a goal and the title was secured with a 1—0 win at Kenilworth Road.

He was named Manager of the Year, the first time that a manager outside of the top-flight had been given such an honour. He continued to manage and change every aspect of the club, and took the decision to disassemble the club's scouting network to instead focus on local talent in Northumberland and Durham. Building for the —76 campaign he signed Phil Boersma from Liverpool to replace Murdoch, but Boersma never settled at the club and was frequently injured.

They did make their mark on the FA Cup in the Third Round by taking eventual winners Arsenal to four replays before they eventually succumbed to a 2—0 defeat. Wednesday pushed for promotion in the —82 season but ended just one place and one point outside the promotion places and would have actually been promoted under the old two points for a win system that was replaced by the three points for a win system at the beginning of the campaign. In building for the —83 campaign, Charlton signed experienced defender Mick Lyons from Everton and by Christmas Wednesday were top of the table.

In March , Malcolm Allison left Middlesbrough and Charlton agreed to manage the club until the end of the —84 to help steer the club away from the Second Division relegation zone. Charlton was appointed manager of Newcastle United in June after being persuaded to take the job by Jackie Milburn.

Charlton resigned at the end of pre-season training for the —86 campaign after fans at St James' Park started calling for his dismissal after the club failed to secure the signing of Eric Gates , who instead joined Lawrie McMenemy at Sunderland. Qualification for Euro meant winning a group containing Bulgaria , Luxembourg and Scotland. The campaign opened with Belgium at the Heysel Stadium , and though Ireland contained danger man Nico Claesen , they had to settle for a 2—2 draw after conceding twice from corner-kicks; Frank Stapleton and Liam Brady scored the goals for Ireland.

The build up to Euro in West Germany was far from ideal, as key player Mark Lawrenson was forced to retire after injuring his Achilles tendon, Liam Brady picked up a serious knee injury and Mark Kelly was also injured. Qualification for the World Cup required Charlton to mastermind a top two finish in a group consisting of Spain , Hungary , Northern Ireland and Malta. The campaign started on hostile ground at Belfast 's Windsor Park , and he had stand-in goalkeeper Gerry Peyton to thank for the point gained from a goalless draw with Northern Ireland. Ireland's group opponents in Italia '90 were England, Egypt and the Netherlands.

Charlton felt that England's four-man midfield of Waddle, Barnes, Bryan Robson and Paul Gascoigne did not offer enough protection to the back four, and he was proved correct when Kevin Sheedy cancelled out Gary Lineker 's opener to secure a 1—1 draw in the group opener at the Stadio Sant'Elia. They opened in style with a 5—0 home win over the Turks and then drew 1—1 home and away with the English; Ireland were the better team than England in both encounters and Charlton said that they "twice let them off the hook" after Houghton missed easy chances in both games.

Lithuania, Latvia and Albania proved to be little threat to the Irish, and both home and away fixtures against these three teams earned Ireland the maximum two points.
