THE attendance record for a National League match at Wrexham AFC's Racecourse ground has been broken once again.

On Easter Monday, a crowd of 10,022 spectators piled into the world's oldest international football ground to witness the Reds beat Altrincham 4-0.

That beat a record set just a few days earlier when 9,971 supporters turned up to watch a 1-1 draw v Solihull Moors on Good Friday.

Now, the record has been broken once more as a crowd of 10,118 was at the Racecourse to watch Wrexham's stunning 3-0 win over National League title rivals Stockport County on Sunday (May 8).

That was the biggest Racecourse crowd since May 2007 and the biggest since the closure of The Kop in what was the Reds' final home match of the 21/22 campaign.

A brace from Ollie Palmer and top scorer Paul Mullin's 30th goal of the season saw the Reds leapfrog Stockport to pole position, but the latter do have a game in hand v Torquay United to play in midweek.

PIC: The Racecourse has been the place to be this season.

The Racecourse and the whole town of Wrexham has been buzzing of late, particularly since the takeover of the club by Hollywood duo Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney last year.

This season has been the first time 21 consecutive Wrexham home league games had attendances in excess of 7,500 since May 1979.

Wrexham also scored an average of 2.14 goals in home league games this season, the club's best average since 1995-6.

On Sunday, Wrexham will take on Dagenham and Redbridge away in the hope of securing the National League title - providing Stockport County slip up in their final two matches.

Failing that, promotion back to the English Football League is still a possibility through the Play-Off system.
