Yes I agree, they let his team train there for months too.

People appear quick to pan the club yet they’ve provided this service for the past 40 years. It’s not ideal and yes, the club should have communicated better. More points for improvement.

If it was my child I’d be disappointed for them (not me). As a kid, I never got to play on the racecourse. The best I got was Connah’s Quay’s old ground and a game at Flint’s new ground under the lights.

Who has said they are disappointed for themselves and not the kids? I must have missed that.

Every other season for 40 years the club has managed it, that's included plenty of seasons in the play offs, work on the ground etc etc.

Its annoyed a lot of people, trust me on that, which in terms of PR and clubs relationship with local teams etc is not good. The clubs youth set up is already run down and disliked/not trusted by many parents and coaches due to them being treated appallingly, but I'm not going to go into all that now because its pointless as its continually swept under the carpet like anything that doesn't sit well with some fans.

I don’t want an argument, Phil.

It’s hardly pointless. Do something about it. I’d love you to transmit the fire you have to argue and quarrel with supporters on here into something meaningful. I would but we have too many “yes” men at the club!

Oh yes you do.

What do you think I could possibly do Alan?
Is this the old myth if you don't like it get yourself elected nonsense that's been crushed many many times on here? Not looking for an argument, its a forum

Its not arguing all the time, mainly it's putting people straight, some learn some don't, but it's their choice (Yes that was a joke)

1. I genuinely don’t; not on this case.

2. Rattle a few cages. Work on changing and improving the public face of the youth set up and other such areas of the club.

On Sunday though yeah? Still a potential problem if you planned to stay over though I guess.

I'm sure it's normally on a Saturday so at least common sense has been applied a little.

Little consolation to the kids, but also a great playing surface.

1. I was joking there Al, I really don't want to argue contrary to what people may think.

2. Tried that with the bubble and other things such as the catering, food and prices being charged. Got absolutely nowhere.
I was in dialogue with the board for months. Got fobbed off, got politicians non answers, tried and tried to get them to answer some basic questions but in the end they sent me a load of email addresses to contact (the final fob off), contacted them all, didn't get one reply. Gave up after that because I felt I'd just completely wasted my time.
Probably still got the email chains somewhere.

A totally demoralising experience that left me thinking why bother. Its why I get annoyed sometimes when people point the finger saying 'do something about it then' not having a clue that I actually have tried previously and got nowhere. Just some straight answers would have helped but even that's too much to ask.
They really aren't transparent in my experience, as when you ask some tough questions the shutters come down.

Now I have far more important things to concern my time with like my children and I simply don't have the time or energy anymore. RP is great for me though, because I can still vent if I feel the need.

Anyway I'm ruining the thread so I'll shut up now.
