Junior footballers to miss out on playing at the Racecourse due to play-offs
 
On the face of it the explanation seems reasonable, but looking deeper at it why are we training on the Racecourse in the first place? I had heard there might be issues with the condition of the Nine Acre.

I heard Druids have stepped in.

A real shame that this follows on from the hugely successful Grass Roots football day, which Rob Stock ran so well, drawing an extra 1000+ fans in on the day.

They have.

My sons team was due to play at the racecourse, won't be the same playing at the rock I'll be honest. The younger kids will be gutted..

Why do they need it for the first team to train when the club has a training pitch?

That's really poor, they could have sorted something else out surely.

There's been rumblings about this for a few months too so they've had plenty of time.

Don't the team get changed at the Racecourse before going on to Nine Acres as there is no changing facilities at the training pitch.

Am I missing something here, why would the club need to ground bar Thursdays play off game which would have no impact on this anyway?

They've just annoyed every youth team in the area plus all the parents and kids.

Whatever happened to turning up to training in your training gear?

Fair do's that's piss poor from the club. If you promise to do something you should do it

Taken off Facebook

"Contractors booked w/c 6 May to replace top drains. That’s latest date for pitch to be ready for mid July when there are preseason friendlies provisionally booked to make inroads to the Glyndwr £100k rent.
That would of meant only this week would have been available and that depending on the play off situation. Considering Wrexhams playoff date was only confirmed last Saturday the short notice has made it virtually impossible for the youth league to confirm finals day. Having personally experienced finals day on two occasions it’s disappointing all round, but to accuse the club of not being community focused is well wide of the mark."

I went past nine acres yesterday and was shocked at the state of it the grass is way too long. It needs some tlc no way could this be used to train on we must be training somewhere else
