The day before this season's competition kicks off (reigning champions Marlow being this year's English entrants, of course) seems an appropriate occasion to publish the record of the most recent European Champion Clubs' Cup, the 2013-14 edition.
As can be seen, Wrexham made a swift First Round exit, losing in a play-off to AEK Athens (on one their rare forays into the Cup), before debutants RWD Molenbeek of Belgium claimed the trophy, beating Dnepr Dnepropetrovsk in a tight Final (the lowest-scoring in history, actually, the only Final thus far to be decided by a solitary goal) after an impressive run to the showdown, most particularly the Quarter-Final aggregate trouncing of Ferencvaros.
