R.I.P. Jacqui Walker

08 September 2014 - 07:38 PM

A lot of the followers of the Crusaders and the Supporters Club Facebook pages will already be aware of the sad passing of Jacqui Walker this weekend, but couldn't let this sad occassion pass by without further remark on here.

Jacqui took an active interest in all sports, and on discovering rugby league totally immersed herself in it and the Crusaders, with boundless motivation and enthusiasm. Typical characteristics of Jacqui.

Jacqui ...was diagnosed with cancer last year and chose to fight her illness publically, steadfastly supported by Mouse, Owain, Tomos and the wider Walker / Sedgwick family throughout her courageous battle..

Despite her optimism and dogged determination to beat her illness, just when she thought she'd got it licked, her condition complicated and deteriorated.

Sadly, even a woman as mentally strong as Jacqui was finally unable to overcome her condition and sadly passed during the weekend.

We would appreciate it, if you could all offer what support you can to Mouse, Tomos, Owain and Jacqui's family and friends at this difficult time, and just importantly as the days and weeks go by.

We appreciate your consideration.

Cycling Crusaders

19 August 2014 - 07:17 AM

Hi.  Two Crusaders fans are cycling up to Barrow for the game on 31st August  We are taking the weekend over the trip but we are after a bit of help on the day of the game.


Is there anywhere we can get changed (a shower would be nice too) and store our bikes until the Crusaders Supporters Club bus arrives? we're going back on the bus so when that arrives our bike will go in the luggage hold!


If anyone can put me in touch with the club or ask permission for us to change and park up that would be great.


Any hospitality will be gratefully received.


Many thanks

Keighley Cougars away

Well, we can relax now - were relegated. Perhaps with no pressure the lads can get the win they've deserved in the last 6 games. I doubt if Keithley will want that though. They're still in the dog fight to avoid tenth place and will be all out for the win.


Looking forward to meeting the Cougars Crew who pitch up in the Turf and at Widnes for the Challenge Cup. A great bunch of folks and looking forward to renewing old acquaintances.


My prediction - Crusaders fans will out drink and out-sing the Cougars!!


See you all on Sunday.

Help for a lone Crusader!

Hi.  I have posted this message on your facebook page and to the e-mail address on your website but have had no reply as yet.


You may remember me; I cycled from Wrexham to Spotland last season for Hornets v Crusaders. I'm planning to do the same on Sunday (3rd August) and to arrive about an hour before kick off - so I'm sort of the advanced guard!
I be ever so grateful if you could extend the same hospitality you offered last season, i.e. somewhere to get changed and somewhere to store my bike until the Supporters Club bus arrives. Last season I got changes in the cash office and stored my bike in the club shop.
Once the bus is there I will stow it ready for the journey home - I'm only cycling one way!
I hope you'll be able to help.
Many thanks
