Wrexham FC

While goal nets aficionados and those with a bent for the spectacular would most readily associate Wrexham's Racecourse Ground with Mark Hughes goal and a pair of classic Continental D's

A look further back at the Dragons history of goal nets shows A-frames like those at West Ham or QPR in place through the 1970's.

Then, when the Continental D's were finally introduced, rather confusingly they were tied back, box-net-style.

A glimpse of this set-up can be glimpsed in this haunting film from 1979.
