  1. Congratulations on the promotion, thoroughly deserved. Best of luck to you in the Championship.
  2. Another superb advert for League 1, well done to both teams and congratulations to Doncaster on the win. It's going to be a great final next weekend, not to be missed.
  3. Congratulations to Anthony and Rob on their respective awards. So proud of this club right now I could burst!
  4. Congratulations on winning club of the year. If I had to pick a club apart from my own, it would be Barrow Raiders. Very impressed with the set up there when we visited back in May. Best of luck in the Championship and hope that any restructure doesn't interfere with your progress.
  5. Not seen the figures either, but guessing about 700ish. One thing about the playoffs is the gate money is shared between the two clubs.
  6. Speaking to the chairman a few weeks ago after one of our home games, he said we will definitely NOT be going back to Queensway. If we do play in Wrexham again, it will be at the Racecourse, but in all honesty that would not be a viable permanent move. Perhaps an occasional game there now that Wrexham FC have more open minded owners, but it's just too expensive. Eirias Park is the home of rugby in North Wales, and I'm almost certain we will be staying there.
  7. Don't know what was happening in the first half, but what a comeback. It's always disheartening when the opposition are scoring freely without reply, but Doncaster proved the importance of doing just that, take away any two of Donny's tries and the result could have been different. Our season might be over, but we are all pinching ourselves to make sure we are not dreaming. What a season this has been, leaving Wrexham to survive just five months ago, moving to Colwyn Bay has probably been the best decision anyone has ever made at the club, and I hope we can make it our permanent home.
  8. Setting off now across town to catch the supporters bus to the game. Donny fans will already be well on their way, and it's a long journey. Safe journey everyone, and see you all there later. If your not going to the game don't forget to tune in to Our League at 16:30, the whole game live for free.

  10. I don't know about the rights and wrongs of moving to Moor Lane, probably best to leave it to Salford fans to discuss that one, although the location does look a bit limited for expansion such as extending the pitch. The ground was built by a company called Stadium Solutions. Here's the link to their website. https://www.stadiumsolutions.co.uk/
  11. No one is underestimating Doncaster, far from it. I can understand why many people see us as favourites, we had an amazing run and finished higher in the league, and we were just one win away from finishing second. But let's not forget that Doncaster were one of the favourites for promotion at the start of the season, and it was a 68-0 defeat at home to Doncaster that triggered our winning run. We are up against a team with a playing budget several times the size of ours, and no doubt they will want to prove their worth. On the other hand, we have come from nowhere, and were second favourites to finish bottom, so I think this "favourites" tag is more to do with popularity for the underdog and a recognition for what we have achieved. Yes, we had loan players who made a difference, they came in as cover for players who were injured or self isolating. They made the most of their time here and in helping us they helped themselves, which at the end of the day is the whole idea of going out on loan. Any club can do it, and we were fortunate to get the right players with the right attitude. Whatever happens on Sunday, this will be our last game at our new home this year. It has been a fantastic year, bringing to an end five years of adversity since we left the Racecourse. To be playing in the second week of the playoffs is a massive achievement for a club said to have the second lowest playing budget in the league. We are not underestimating Doncaster, who will be given the respect that they deserve, but we have nothing to fear simply because we have already exceeded our expectations for the year. Of course we want to win, that's the whole point of playing the game, but we are going to celebrate, whatever the result.
  12. Just announced, Cru v Doncaster, Sunday 16:30 KO. https://northwalescrusaders.com/2021/09/20/details-confirmed-for-play-off-between-crusaders-and-doncaster/
  13. One consolation for anyone who can't go is that it's on Our League, (I wonder if that has something to do with the timing). As Gogledd has already posted elsewhere, Eirias Park is hosting the Welsh open Taekwondo on Sunday, so that might also have had an effect. I think the timing will affect the size of the crowd, especially with Wrexham playing at home, and it will be a very long journey home for the Keighley fans. It is what it is, and I'm sure it's the best (probably only) option for the club. As for the floodlights, the stadium is an international standard rugby stadium, and hosts the Wales under 20s six nations games, which are televised live on Friday nights in February/March. So I'm sure they will be good enough.
