The Giant Killers, Wrexham AFC 1974-99

Richard Partington

ISBN 1 872424 95 3

Wrexham AFC are, without any doubt, British football's greatest modern giant-killers. This book relives Wrexham's remarkable exploits and celebrates the significant contribution which the north Wales club and its supporters have made to the excitement, fantasy and magic that is Cup football. After all, what is the magic of the Cup? It is seldom to be found in all those stale semis and fear-filled finals. The romance of the Cup is to be discovered in the journey, not the destination. It is in those lay-bys where the minnows take on the mighty and, against all odds and in defiance of all sporting logic, the underdogs bite their pedigree opponents and the name of a 'giant-killer' enters football folklore.
