Because I was aware we have no legal right to use it.

The big difference here is the fact they'll be using the site to develop youngsters from North Wales, on our old training ground, which was built using the money we recieved for developing our own youngster Brian Hughes.

It was taken away from the oldest club in Wales for reasons already mentioned and we now find ourselves entering our 12th season of hell in non league, training on an old school field.

If they gave the slightest bit of shit about their oldest club and if the board could wake the fook up, there should be a deal on the horizon for us to use it.

Trying to use nine acres or redevelop the Groves seems made with a ready made facility available.

Surely a deal can be negotiated.

We aren't Cardiff or Swansea. The WFA would prefer us to be in the LOW and couldn't care less about our training facilities.

Unless we make a fuss about it in the right areas.

The FAW are an utterly useless, out of touch bunch of cretins.

I get what your saying here but I think this would be a waste of time.
If they gave a shit about us they have had ample opportunity in the past to help but didn't bother.

We do need a far better training ground than what we have now though.

The Faw can't be seen to show favour to Wrexham despite the history between the FAW, Wrexham and the fact Collier's Park used to be ours. They have a duty to all clubs in Wales. What happens if another North Wales based club such as Chester ask to use the training facilities?

I get why people feel aggrieved though.

This is pretty much it...at the moment but in the future things will hope fully change.

Is it not better the WFA do what they are doing to it though than Glyndwr try to sell it off to build houses on.

Yes it's not great and really pisses me off but seeing there is a large Wrexham based staff it will hopefully lead to better relations down the line. What will happen if the WFA need to cut costs and perhaps rent it out?? We would be on a decent position to discuss terms. The groves and 9 acre have a few more hoops to jump through to get the green light yet...ie planning which isn't going to be as straight forward as Phil Wynn et al think it's going to be.

I’ve heard a rumour that Swansea are to set up a north wales academy at colliers park. Now that would piss everyone off!
