WREXHAM legend Mickey Thomas and former England goalkeeper David Seaman are among the contributors featured in a BBC Radio Wales documentary which marks 30 years since the Reds’ famous FA Cup win over Arsenal.

The events of Saturday, 4th January, 1992 at the Racecourse Ground have gone down in history as one of the biggest shocks in FA Cup history.

The FA Cup third round tie was a classic David and Goliath encounter and it lived up to its billing as Wrexham came from behind to beat the Gunners 2-1.

Brian Flynn’s Wrexham had finished the previous season bottom of the Football League but had fortunately been spared relegation into the Conference.

“They were at a low point having finished 92nd in the league. The club obviously was struggling,” said Thomas, who returned to the Racecourse ahead of the 1991-92 season.

“When the draw was made I remember thinking that was it, the end of our run. I wasn’t confident but coming up to the build up to the game you start having a bit of belief.

“I’d been on both sides so I knew what the big teams would be feeling – they’re anxious because it can happen.”

Arsenal were reigning First Division champions and under the management of George Graham had a star studded team including Alan Smith, Paul Merson, Tony Adams and Seaman.

“I always wanted to do really well in the FA Cup but to get knocked out by Wrexham was a big shock,” Seaman told BBC Sport Wales.

“I’ve had a couple of shocks. When I played for Birmingham City we got knocked out by Altrincham, who were non-league and Birmingham were in the top division then.

“But Wrexham beating Arsenal was a little bit different.”

Alan Smith gave Arsenal the lead a minute before half-time with the visitors having dominated the first 45 minutes.

But the North London giants failed to build on their lead and two goals in the final 10 minutes – Thomas’ stunning free-kick and a Steve Watkin winner two minutes later – sealed a historic win.

“How did we do it? It was a miracle,” says Thomas. “But it was a miracle – it was unreal.

“Thirty years on and they’re still talking about it and they’ll be talking about it when I’m gone, there’s no question about that.”

Seaman, who spent a total of 13 years at Arsenal and won 75 caps for England added: “When I look at that team I think ‘how did we lose?’ But we had a bit of an off day.

“But it’s the beauty of the FA Cup. Wrexham will never forget that game – and neither will I!”

Former Reds boss Flynn and matchwinner Watkin also feature in the Radio Wales documentary, which will be broadcast on Friday, January 7, at 7pm on Radio Wales Sport.
