A friend of mine works for the FAW and stated that was the case.

They refused Newport so couldnít be seen to assist us without any valid reason for doing so. Itís also apparently utilised to an extent during the day that would make dual use impossible. My friend said it was a bit of a nuisance for them already with the kids using it.

Jonathan Ford apparently had little time for the WST too which hasnít helped.

The place appears empty all the while what a bloody waste of such a good resource .Dont believe for one minute that the university is making use of it and as for the Wales team training their ,it was a pipe dream they are too south Wales thinking.

Suppose with Covid it could be a bit of a faff. Who uses it during the day?

A professional football club with a fanbase of quite a few thousand,training like nhomads on an abandoned school field..Puts fan ownership in perspective dosen' t it

Those eleven takeover approaches that weren't even worth mentioning must have been absolutely dire.

I think the FAWs finances have changed drastically in the last 12 months. This may dictate a change of thought? Better to get some cash in the till to at least offset the cost base. The accountants may rule the decision to entertain getting some income from the site. Would make financial sense all round - at least in the short term for both parties. Good PR also

The reason behind us not being allowed to use it was politically based as they would be seen to favour one club over another. Hence, any welsh team cannot use FAW facilities. Which is pretty fair reasoning to be honest.

on new years day my partner and myself went past 9 acre for a walk and we could not believe how crap this facility was for a full time professional football club to use

Having no training facilities didn’t stop Salford from throwing the money around.

Quick google search shows that Barrow don’t even train in Barrow and just hire facilities in the North West

Pretty sure the Nomads used Colliers several times over the summer.

I have driven past a few times recently and seen what looked like the wrexham lads training at Colliers. Maybe FAW want to make links with the new owners.
