Newcastle didn't have a home game between the initial draw and subsequent replay against Wrexham. The first opportunity for them to report on these games was in the programme for the game against Ipswich at the end of February.
However, most of the editorial from that game concentrated on the problems the long hard winter was causing. When they did mention the defeat to Wrexham it was in an article describing how Sunderland coped after being beaten by Wrexham 12 months earlier!
The programme contained 24 pages and measured 18.5cm x 24cm.

"Our FA Cup replay against Newcastle lived up to expectations on Monday and we played as we normally do against First Division sides."
These were the words of Wrexham manager Arfon Griffiths, clearly getting used to getting the better of teams from the top division!
