    I’m a Swansea City supporter, and I think it’s fair to say that we’ve always had a pretty decent relationship with Wrexham and their fans, far removed from those loveable scallies down the M4 (and Newport for that matter). I agree with some of the points about visiting new stadiums, grounds, etc. but I remember only too well our brush with the conference in 2003 – one win away from what could have been the point of no return. I know Halifax, Barnet, Carlisle, Hereford, etc. can all offer hope. but it’s the unknown quantity of whether your club can survive in this new environment that’s worrying – Exeter, Cambridge, Oxford, none of them seem like they’ll be back any time soon, and as for Scarborough and Boston…

    It is looking wretched for Wrexham now, but I hope they find their way back pretty soon. And as we are hopefully clinching the League 1 title tomorrow, perhaps we should just spare a thought for Wrexham and contemplate how lucky we were in 2003 for James Thomas, a dodgy penalty and a Hull City side that had nothing to play for – how times have changed…
