Very few people, if any , get a full page tribute. This one, for a very proud Old Wrexhamian, was hard-earned and richly deserved.

The "biker" is Mike Povey and his "passenger", Bill  (Willy) Ellis!

It is no secret that Kevin Hughes enjoys a little flutter on the gee-gees. On Sunday  20th November he noticed that a horse named "Lord Crewe" was running  in the 1 o'clock race at Exeter. Unable to resist the temptation he placed a bet. "Noddy" romped home at 6-1!

I make no apologies for publishing the following. Ray is an Old Wrexhamian of whom we can all be proud!
