  1. Just picked this up on You Tube. League 1 preview starts around 14:30.
  2. It's been a while since the last post on this forum, about 15 months actually. So here's something to dust the cobwebs off.
  3. The first League 1 fixture list for 14 months. Obviously want to see us win, just like everyone else with their respective teams, just nice to see all 10 names on the list. We're all winners this weekend.
  4. Not sure why Colwyn Bay FC have been mentioned on here, but just to avoid any confusion they don't play at Eirias Park. They have their own ground about a mile away on Llanelian Road.
  5. Initially it is for this year. If we are to move back to Wrexham it would have to be at the Racecourse, I really don't see us going back to Queensway. However I do get a sense of frustration from the club with the constant obstacles which seem to keep popping up in Wrexham every time they want to take the club forward. I get the feeling that the local council's attitude over the last few weeks has been the final straw. On the fans forum on zoom on Wednesday night, our CEO and Chairman both said how they had been bowled over by the facilities and the welcome in Colwyn Bay, and it is appare
  6. To be fair, our chairman contacted the football club after the takeover was completed and the bloke the actors have put in charge there responded within 24 hours. This was in complete contrast to the previous owners, Wrexham Supporters Trust, who treated us with utter contempt. One of our directors described them as being ignorant and quire rude. Anyway, there is a lot of work going on at the Racecourse at the moment, refurbishing concourses, etc, so the earliest we can go back there is next year. The problem is reaching an agreement on the price, it will probably still be out of our reac
  7. I think this was a mini tournament organised by the club for local schools. I don't really know much about it to be honest, but I do seem to remember it being held a couple of times at Cefn Druids football ground (where we played a few games in 2014 & 2015). Not aware of it taking place this year, and with the pandemic I'd be surprised if it did. Those who were involved in it have been incredibly busy reviving the amateur game in North Wales.
  8. The main stand seats around 2,500 with open terracing for another 3,000 at either end of the stand, so all on one side of the pitch. On the opposite side there are hospitality boxes. Behind the goals there is a grass bank at one end and a gymnasium/indoor pitch at the other end. The stadium is located in a large municipal park. Some more info on Wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eirias_Stadium
  9. Just been announced that North Wales Crusaders are moving to the 6,000 capacity Zip World Stadium (Eirias Park) in Colwyn Bay. The stadium is also home to RGC 1404 (the union equivalent of North Wales Crusaders) and also the home ground for the Wales A team for the rugby union six nations. So we are moving to North Wales premier rugby venue. I was disappointed to hear at a fans forum on Zoom earlier tonight that Wrexham Council have no interest in rugby league in the town whatsoever. On the other hand, Conwy Council are very keen to have us in Colwyn Bay. The news was positively
  10. With most of the football clubs now having 3G pitches which are not suitable for rugby, we are basically stuck at Queensway for the foreseeable future. The only advantage is that it is cheap, very cheap. I think we are fortunate that it was developed as an athletics stadium in the early 1980s, otherwise we would have nowhere to play. I know the club want to be involved in the pilot scheme for the return of crowds in Wales. You would think ourselves and West Wales would be ideal candidates, as they are talking about crowds of between 200 and 1,000, but we will just have to wait and see. Th
  11. Copied from the club website. Nice to see some co-operation with Wrexham RUFC. As part of the strategic development partnership between North Wales Crusaders and Wales Rugby League (WRL), Crusaders Reserves have relaunched as a WRL community club to be known as Wrexham Crusaders ARLFC. This rebrand is essential to interact with the local community in the Wrexham area and provide accessible rugby league for everyone. Wrexham Crusaders ARLFC will offer rugby league for women and men, plus junior age groups for both boys and girls, bringing the sport to a wider player base.
  12. For the first time in years, more than half of our home games fall on my days off. Only problem is, what if the season starts behind closed doors? Our first two home games are against Hunslet and Workington, games which would normally see the crowd boosted by good travelling support. We have four home games in May and June, if they are behind closed doors it will have a serious effect on our income. For Rochdale and London, the lack of home games in those first two months could be a blessing in disguise, you could find crowds allowed back in time for the majority of your home games.
  13. We ran a coach to Eccles from Wrexham a few years ago to surprise one of the members there, Kenny Roberts, who followed us home and away, and had supported the old Celtic Crusaders in Bridgend. It was a great day out and we were made very welcome. Congratulations and best of luck to everyone at Eccles. Wonderful news.
  14. North Wales Crusaders have announced an exciting strategic development plan with Wales Rugby League. This new, innovative partnership with the Wrexham-based club will see a jointly funded part time community coach help grow rugby league in North Wales, as well as build brand awareness and fan engagement for Crusaders as part of their return for investment plan with the Rugby Football League. There is already the support of two community clubs in North Wales. Flintshire Falcons are making a welcome return to the WRL community fold in 2021, while a new community side in Wrexham is also
  15. North Wales Crusaders keeping the 2020 shirts for next year, but have just announced an anniversary shirt to mark the club's 10th season. http://northwalescrusaders.com/news/purchase-crusaders-2021-anniversary-shirt/
