Friday, 11th February marks 30 years since the Bay’s 3-1 win over Wrexham in the Welsh Cup quarter finals.
Bryn Jones’ side at the time were taking the HFS Loans League First Division by storm, having only been promoted at the start of the 1991/92 season.
Wrexham away were Bay’s quarter finals opponents, and the Fourth Division side had secured one of the greatest FA Cup shocks of all in January 1992, beating then reigning First Division champions Arsenal at the Racecourse
Wrexham fielded a strong side for the Fifth Round tie against the Bay on 28 January, 1992.
Peter Donnelly, scored a stunning 30-yard goal to give Bay the lead at the Racecourse Ground.
But Bay’s hopes of an upset were scuppered when fog quickly descended on the Racecourse Ground and the match was abandoned after 64 minutes.
Bay returned to the Racecourse a few weeks later on 11th February to face a Wrexham side who had taken First Division West Ham to a replay in the FA Cup Fourth Round before bowing out.
Mark Williscroft gave the Bay the lead against his hometown club, only for Brian Carey to equalise for the hosts 12 minutes later.
But Peter Donnelly restored Bay’s lead in the second half before Williscroft headed a third to book a place in the semi-final for the third time in the club’s history.
Bay won the HFS Loans League First Division title later that season as well as the First Division League Cup and the North Wales Coast FA Challenge Cup.
But the Welsh Cup dream came to an end in the semi-final with a defeat over two legs by Hednesford Town.
