FA Cup Memory Lane-Karl Connolly

Karl Connolly in FA Cup Action,Wrexham Versus Arsenal 1992.

Wrexham 2-1 Arsenal
FA Cup third round, January 1992

Second in the Premiership against 24th in the Third Division.

Reigning league champions Arsenal made the trip to Racecourse Ground for what was supposed to be an elementary exercise in disposing of lower division fodder.

The Gunners had taken the lead just before half time courtesy of Alan Smith and were just 10 minutes from securing their passage to the fourth round.

But up stepped former Manchester United firebrand Mickey Thomas, who unleashed a 25-yard free-kick past David Seaman.

Wrexham were in the ascendancy and could sense an upset.

Two minutes later their instincts were to be proved right as 20-year-old Steve Watkin surged into the Arsenal area to strike home the winner.

A reminder that the next meeting of the Leigh Genesis Supporters Association is to take place this coming Wednesday (1st October) at 7pm at the Railway public house (Railway Road/Twist Lane) in Leigh. With a broad range of topics to discuss, it’s an evening with fellow supporters not to be missed! Guest speakers will be Billy Jo Bob Axeworthy who will give a talk on his many appearances on Jerry Springer and how Leythers can get more media exposure on the Jeremy Kyle Show. Apparently the Leythers are combining the supporters club meeting with a mystery family reunion get together to save money and time.

Also appearing at the meeting will be legendary Leigh singer Joshiua¬† Jermiah¬† Robbie Ray Bubba Grimshaw with a selection from his 102 selling CD ‘ My daddy was a milkman from Bickershaw” as listed below.

Whitby Virgins

Whitby isn’t the quaint little seaside town we all think it is, it has a very dark, sinister side…..but enough about the Turnbull Ground.

Essential reading for away trips to Whitby
