Report from Bennos
A bus full of Wrexham fans made the now annual pilgrimage to Gary Bennetts pub in Skelmersdale last Friday and a great time was had by all!
Expertly compared by Pete Jones the panel of ex-Wrexham players was made up of Ian Moir, Gary Bennett, Karl Connolly and surprise guest Geoff Davies over from the USA.
Unfortunately Billy Ashcroft was ill and so could not attend. Despite this the audience were treated to a stream of anecdotes and reminisciences from the assembled panel that had everyone in stitches.
Ian Moir as always could not stay in his seat longer than about 30 seconds and his visual antics only added to the enjoyment as he recounted some of the more amusing stories of his footballing career.
Benno too was as entertaining as ever and a fantatic host for the night, providing a hotpot supper for everyone and also making a very generous contribution to the Trust.
Karl Connolly was a man of few words on the evening but the Wrexham fans greatly appreciated his presence.
It was interesting too to hear of Geoff Davies' adventures since he moved to the USA some time ago and all in all it was another cracking trip to Bennos that was greatly enjoyed by one and all. Heres to next year!
