Always found it weird that the English and Welsh announcements had different sound levels.

The Welsh announcer is simply the best. Cledwyn Ashford? I love the vigesimal welsh counting system he uses when announcing the player's numbers etc. He has to stay.

You know what Fezbob, you're absolutely right . The guy did his best for many years and has been there week in week out through thick and thin . I'm glad he go to see us promoted and I'm glad he got to do a job he obviously loved for many years .

If my comments seemed negative, I apologise. I know for many years the PA in the ground has been pretty poor & Steve tried his best to make the best of it.

It might just be time for a change and there's nothing wrong with that - nor is there any disrespect to the job he did intended .

I thought the tweet was worded a little strangely, but I guess he's just speaking from the heart - and he genuinely is devastated, which any of us would be if we ever had to give up anything to do with the club .

I guess my comments were more aimed at some of the responses to the tweet - criticising the club and individuals in the club , when people have no real knowledge of what's going on - some just like to criticise the club at any given opportunity - but that's not Steve's fault .

So yeah , I hope he can look back on his time here with fondness and pride and accept that like many things in life things do come to an end .... but while he won't be sat behind the mike, I hope he gets to enjoy many more years enjoying watching football at The Racecourse

Fair play to you, I just think he's someone who's done it for the love of the club and not the recognition and that in itself deserves some credit. I'm not going to criticise the club over the situation as I've no idea of the ins and outs. As you say, I think he's just a bit gutted that it's ended and I see no harm in him posting that. Also, the PA system is well overdue an upgrade. I often find it cuts out in the MRS but maybe we'll put that on the long list of infrastructure work which is needed and being addressed very well by the owners.

Not hearing the music is a blessing. Apart from "Wrexham Is The Name" when the teams come out, music should be left alone at football matches, kills any pre-match atmosphere

Some of the responses along the lines of ' the club's getting worse not better' seem to forget how far we've come in the last couple of years
He's gone to the Mark Griffiths school of Twitter social media, I see.
