North Wales Crusaders - travel info

31 August 2015 - 11:16 AM

Hi York fans,


Just giving you a 'heads up' that the Tour of Britain Stage 1 finishes in Wrexham at approx 15:00 on Sunday 6th September, but there are associated events happening from 10am onwards


The road closures in town should not effect your route to Glyndwr University Racecourse Stadium but other routes and road closures may effect the general traffic flow, so it may be worth setting off a bit earlier (just in case) to arrive for our 14:30 kick off.


There will be parking restrictions in lots of areas of the town but it shouldn't be a problem near the university.


Have  a safe journey

League 1: London Skolars away - Friday Night Lights 28 August

23 August 2015 - 04:21 PM

One of the best fixtures in the Rugby League calendar - Friday Night Lights, the eve of the Challenge Cup fixture at London Skolars.


Rochdale Hornets and Barrow will definitely have a eye on this fixture - win all our 3 remaining games and we will end up in 5th place in League 1 and then head into the play-offs. Lose and we could hand a play-off place to the Hornets.


Apart from the excitement of the game itself Friday Night Lights is a festival of rugby league with junior and masters games, a beer festival and lots of Welsh singing!  Don't forget to pack your Hawaiian shirts!


There is a Supporters bus running as usual. Book your place at Glyndwr University Sports Centre for only £25. THe bus leaves the Turf at 2:30pm on Friday.

League 1; York City Knights away - 20th August

20 August 2015 - 09:01 AM

I'm not sure what to make of this one. York sit in second but many think its because they were placed in the 'southern' half of the league (??? I don't understand why either) which meant that their fixtures have been predominantly against 'southern' clubs.


Whatever the reasons they must have won sufficient games to be in that position - and they've beaten Swinton and Hornets - something we haven't done.


So what are our prospects?  First we have to get 17 players out onto the pitch and that will be an achievement in itself. Our lads are decimated by injuries and many of them are long term. We have a number of key players out and Muzza will have to do the best with who he has left.


One thing is for certain - we have to win all our remaining games to stand a chance of getting to the play-offs; even then we have to rely on Hornets slipping up on their run in - a possibility at Keighley. So lets get behind the lads and cheer them on at York.


PS the fixture has changed venue - its now to be played at Heworth ARLFC

League 1: Home to Swinton - Sunday 16th August

12 August 2015 - 02:07 PM

After a battering game against Hornets we get two players back from suspension but still have a long list of injured players.


Lets hope Muzza has been down to poundland and bought some evostick to spray on everyones hands.. and hopefully TJ will get his kicking mojo back too.


Swinton are in decent form of late so it will be another game we need top defence, total concentration, play together as a team and take our chances when they come.

League 1: Away to Rochdale Hornets 9th August

05 August 2015 - 11:55 AM

We continue our tough run into the play offs with a season-defining game at Spotland.


Can Anthony Murray sure up enough players to get 17 lads out on the pitch that can last the 80-minutes?


Its going to be a cracker and according to the Hornets forum we are underdogs according to the bookies. Crusaders will need to play far, far better than we have done in the last two games but I'm confident that Murray will have our players ready and willing for a real-4pointer.


I'm not making any predictions - it's going to be that close!
