97-year-old Tom Hughes, believed to be Wrexham F.C's oldest fan, is to attend the football club's 150th anniversary game against Grimsby this Saturday.

Tom was just five years old when he was first taken by his father to watch The Dragons in action in 1921, and saw Wrexham play in their 100th anniversary match in 1964.

He's expected to be at the Racecourse this weekend with his own son Michael - another keen Wrexham fan.

Wales are in Euro Qualifying action as they take on Bosnia at the Cardiff City Stadium this evening, and manager Chris Coleman will be hoping for a positive result despite another withdrawal from his already injury-ravaged squad.

Emyr Hughes' ankle injury suffered in training on Wednesday brings the number of players Chris Coleman will be without up to ten.

"We lost him to an innocuous challenge in a small-sided game...We're going to have to send him back to Wigan. He's gone off for a scan as he's got a bad swelling around his ankle. It's disappointing but we'll have to get on with it."

– Chris Coleman, Wales Manager

Coleman already lost influential midfielders Aaron Ramey and Joe Allen before even naming the squad, and will be hoping Real Madrid star Gareth Bale will deliver in their absence.

SQUAD IN FULL:

Goalkeepers: Wayne Hennessey (Crystal Palace), Kyle Letheren (Dundee), Owain Fon Williams (Tranmere Rovers).

Defenders: James Chester (Hull City), Declan John (Cardiff City), Joe Walsh (Crawley Town), Ben Davies (Tottenham), Danny Gabbidon (Cardiff City), Chris Gunter (Reading), Samuel Ricketts (Wolves), Neil Taylor (Swansea City), Rhoys Wiggins (Charlton), Ashley Williams (Swansea City).

Midfielders: David Cotterill (Birmingham City), David Edwards (Wolves), Gwion Edwards (Crawley Town), Andy King (Leicester City), Joe Ledley (Crystal Palace).

Forwards: Gareth Bale (Real Madrid), Simon Church (Charlton), Tom Lawrence (Leicester City), Hal Robson-Kanu (Reading), Jake Taylor (Reading), George Williams (Fulham), Jonathan Williams (Crystal Palace).

The classic car was the brainchild of Giles Smith from Pontypridd and his German engineer friend Bernard Friese, who put their names together and christened Wales' only production sports car.

Giles Smith was a butcher and it was in his butcher's shop in Church Village where the first car was produced in 1959.

Approximately 1100 Gilbern Cars were manufactured between then and the company's closure in 1973.
