JANUARY 4, 1992 is one of the most memorable ever days for Wrexham fans.

Mickey Thomas and Steve Watkin struck for the Reds to put Arsenal to the sword in one of the greatest FA Cup shocks.

However, that day is also memorable for Gresford Athletic director of football Steve Halliwell, who was unable to attend the iconic tie.

Earlier this week, Halliwell Tweeted: "30 years to the day since Wrexham beat Arsenal!

"Also 30 years to the day that I fell off the milk float I was working on and missed the match."

Remembering that day, Halliwell said: "I was working on it and I was only 12.

"I went around the corner and went to grab a bottle, but I fell over the side of it.

"It ran over my leg!"

Halliwell was taken home after this and he added: "I was in hospital the morning of the game!"

He didn't suffer a broken leg though, suffering a bruised leg instead, which he put down to "being young" and "having soft bones".

He was back at home when the game was played and asked how he followed the tie, he said: "Teletext!

"Then Match of the Day later that night with a cup of hot chocolate."

That Arsenal game was the beginning of a memorable decade for the Reds, which witnessed plenty of giant killing acts in the FA Cup.

Wrexham were eventually knocked out in a fourth round replay by West Ham, but Brian Flynn's Reds would exact their revenge five years later with a last-gasp triumph in a replay at Upton Park.

Premier League Ipswich Town and Middlesbrough were also defeated during the 90s.

"I didn't go to the away (West Ham) game, but I was at the one at home in the snow," added Halliwell.

"I wasn't an avid fan back then, but I would go to the cup games, especially against the Premier League teams.

"Hopefully we get back to those games again."
