It’s Coming Home!

 

Welsh International football returns to its spiritual home tonight as Wales play at Wrexham Association Football Club’s Racecourse Ground. It’s been 11 long years since Wales graced the turf of The Racecourse, which is recognised as the world’s oldest international football stadium, having hosted the first ever home international match played by Wales in 1877, and subsequently has hosted more Wales international fixtures than any other ground.

 

 

There is already a sell-out crowd to watch Ryan Gigg’s Wales team play a former favourite at the Cae Ras, Dennis Lawrence, brings his Trinidad and Tobago team to North Wales for a friendly match. It’s well beyond time that the FAW brought a first team to Wrexham, if only to reward the thousands of dedicated Welsh football supporters for their loyalty in supporting the National team over the many years were the norm has been a hellish trek south over neglected rail systems and tortuous roads. and with never a complaint, because North Wales is the birthplace of Welsh football, and continues to show its passion even though this is the first time a great many of the younger fans will have been able to watch their team actually on (or nearly on!) their own doorstep.

 

Let’s hope the powers that be take note of the undoubted passion that will be shown tonight, and make such matches happen< a little more often than every decade or longer
