TUESDAY’S attendance for Wrexham’s 3-2 defeat at home to Burton Albion in the EFL Trophy was the lowest STóK Cae Ras gate of the season.

Averaging more than 10,000 a home game, Wrexham are once again enjoying bumper gates this season - a figure that will soon rise with the club announcing a temporary stand is coming behind the goal at the Kop End.

Wrexham will then attract 12,000-plus attendances which will be the envy of most sides in Leagues One and Two.

The 4,963 gate on Tuesday that saw Wrexham bow out of the competition was a much bigger crowd-puller than the one for the diehards at Scarborough 33 years ago.

Today marks the day when the Reds entered the record books for all the wrong reasons when only 625 bothered to turn up for their Division Four fixture at Scarborough’s Seamer Road on December 7, 1990.

Wrexham certainly had their chips at the soon-to-be-renamed McCain Stadium where the hosts raced to a 3-0 lead inside 23 minutes.

Two of The Seadogs’ goals were scored by George Oghani, who failed to find the target once in his seven-game loan spell at The Racecourse three years earlier.

Geoff Hunter and Chris Armstrong gave the handful of Wrexham fans something to shout about as the Friday night encounter ended 4-2.

As for Wrexham’s worst home crowd of the new Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds era, that’s the 1,823 who saw Jordan Davies (pictured right) score twice in a 5-0 FA Trophy win over Gloucester City on December 18, 2021.
