They're using what was once our training ground, a facility taken away from us when Wales' oldest professional football club was raped by the 'asset strippers'.

It's a moral issue and you know it. The whole story should be highlighted nationally and the right people should be contacted.

If the FAW can't see how wrong this is then I despair. We are Wales' oldest club, we've won the Welsh cup more than any other club and the Racecourse Ground (the home of Welsh football club ffs) has held 92 International games with the first held in in March 1877, more than any other ground.

If they can't lend Wrexham football club a helping hand until we get our house in order, then they are a disgrace. This argument about other clubs using it is complete bollocks.

Letís say Iím a CQN fan. Why should the FAW assist a club that doesnít even represent Wales when my club does?

I appreciate your feudal argument but it has very little weight. Itís like saying the flats belong to Wrexham AFC too.

Why not?
The argument now should be about welsh football. We therefore have to be inclusive of others and the facilities available for the good of welsh football In general.

The emotional side is an additional factor.

I think it hastens the need for Wrexham AFC to have its own facilities and it frustrates me that Spencer Harris and the leader of WCBC were talking positively and proactively about developing the Groves and now it’s gone quiet.

Come on Alan. Have CQN got any fans? The flats aren't owned by the FAW are they?

CQN, TNS and all the other teams officially represent Wales, but they don't really do they? The majority of the footballing world have never heard of these pub sides. Cardiff city, Swansea, Wrexham and Newport represent Welsh football, if we're honest here.

By the same Moral argument the Welsh FA should fund a new kop, buy the Racecourse and let us use it for next to nothing as we've been shafted.

The asset was sold to the Uni. We wouldn't pay an exorbitant rent for it and pay to bring it back to acceptable standards so we got 9 acre which is a reasonable area to train on most of the year.
We can and will do better if we get the Groves.

Maybe the next time the National team turn up, they should be met by a lobby of Wxm fans.
