To be fair that would not surprise me either as those that run the youth league in Wrexham are about as far away from competent as you can get.

Not looking to defend their actions but it has been known in local football areas for sometime
Not at club level it hasn't.

"Moving the dates forward would of been a non starter as the youth league still havenít finished their season. Cancelling league fixtures to accommodate cup matches on this scale would lead to problem down the line with referee availability for rearranged midweek fixtures.
4 months notice should of been more than enough time for the youth league hierarchy to inform their clubs that the Racecourse was provisional this season because of the reasons outlined."

The 4 months notice coming from this article, I believe:

Cheers! Definitely seems like there should have been more communication from the youth league to clubs about it.

It was undecided until recently and the youth league clubs (well my sons club did) kept us fully up to date, all managers speak to each and it was common knowledge as far as I can tell. So its been left up in the air for months.
I thought I'd missed a bit in the statement from the club but I hadn't. Key word here is possibly. Not sure what more the league could have done while waiting for confirmation.

we first informed our friends at the Macron Wrexham and District Youth League in January 2019 that, due to the play offs, the stadium was possibly unavailable as the Vanarama National League play-offs coincide with the weekend before vital scheduled works are due to start on the Racecourse pitch.

I'm not sure how that's the club's fault. We've told the league that it's possible not available. The youth league at that point has two options:

1) hope it will be ok and do nothing
2) move it to an alternative venue.

It's basic continuity planning which the youth league appear (based on what I've read here) to have done very little.

As I said earlier, in 40 years it hasn't been an issue which suggests there are ways and means, I know the dates change by weeks for example to accommodate availability.

With regards to your points 1 & 2, they did both obviously apart from 'do nothing' as its now being played at Druids. So like I said I'm not sure what more they could have done. The club on the other hand, I believe could have done more and should have. Friendlies can be delayed for example or not be played at the racecourse until a week later. Pitch work could therefore have been put back to accommodate. If we had proper training facilities then that would also helped.

The Youth League will have been desperate for the finals to be played at the racecourse because that's the pull of the competition and which makes it the stand out cup competition. Take that away and it just wouldn't be the same so I understand them waiting and hoping it worked out.

Appears the Youth League Committee is responsible then. I used to attend their monthly meetings at the Wynnstay, and to say they were a shambles would be kind. This doesn't surprise me one bit.
