    Merthyr got to pick their league when reforming so i don’t see a problem Wrexham doing the same. Perhaps they’d fancy a crack at the Scottish league? Only kiddin’!

    Good luck to Wrexham and their fans. Situations like these are far too frequent unfortunately… And the Racecourse is a great ground.

    Scary……Excellent article

  3. Oxo says:

    Merthyr didn’t get to choose their league, it was decided for them by the FA. The logical choices were either Hellenic League (where Newport reformed) and the Western League.

  4. Paul says:

    I think what Steve Thomas means is that Merthyr got to choose to remain in the English pyramid rather than being forced into the Welsh. The FAW allowed them to do this and I would have thoguht that they would do the same for Wrexham. It would be such a shame though if they have to drop down the leagues. North Wales football and Welsh football generally needs a Welsh Football League club in the North.

  5. Steve Thomas says:

    Spot on Paul, hence my little joke about the Scottish pyramid.

    I followed the Merthyr thing quiet closely as they helped my club when we were in need. I wasn’t suggesting they could opt for the Essex Senior league or something ;-)

    IN a recent deal between AFC Wimbledon, Kingstonian FC and Kingston Council (The owners of the freehold on the Kingsmeadow ground) Kingstonian FC were given a 10 year lease as tenants for free (Yes for FREE) and guaranteed use for 15 years after that at a nominal rent. Wimbledon continue to improve the ground every year (recently added football league standard floodlights. Good luck to Wrexham fans.

    Good luck to Wrexham, we (Mansfield Town) have continuing issues and another court case with our friend Haslam in February!! The sooner these people were rooted out of the game the better.

    […] The Fight For Wrexham Football Club Continues: It was now apparent that a £700,000 debt owed to the Rugby Football League by Crusaders was mortgaged to the RFL by the club. So, it was time to take a little closer look at what had happened to the Crusaders and why not having a ground of one’s own can be a millstone round the neck. […]
