NORTH WALES CRUSADERS are exploring the possibility of returning to the scene of their most famous moments.

Chief executive Andy Moulsdale, who played for Crusaders at The Racecourse Ground, is keen to take Anthony Murray’s men back to the home of Wrexham Football Club.

“It’s something we are looking at,” confirmed Moulsdale, who captained the club to silverware during their six-year spell at The Racecourse.

“We have always been keen to play at The Racecourse if it’s possible, but we need to see what happens with the takeover.

“I don’t see why we couldn’t return to The Racecourse, we’ve worked with the football club before and something can be agreed that benefits both of us.”

On Wrexham’s prospective takeover by Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, Moulsdale added: “We as a club want Wrexham Football Club to thrive.

“The town needs a successful football team and hopefully they want a successful rugby league team as well.”

Crusaders headed from south to north Wales in 2010 as they embarked on a new adventure and things have been far from dull during their time in Wrexham.

The first game was played out at a snow covered packed out Racecourse playing surface on January 29, Gareth Raynor scoring the Crusaders’ try, right, as they were beaten 34-6 by Leeds Rhinos, although the match was level at 6-6 with 15 minutes remaining.

“We took part in quite a historic night,” said Crusaders’ head coach Brian Noble. “Probably nine and a half thousand of that crowd were new to rugby league. There’s exciting things happening here and we’ve been made totally welcome. We’ve got the whole of Wales to go at now.”

Noble came and went after a play-off push, Iestyn Harris enduring a tough 2011, which ended in the club withdrawing from Super League and subsequently wound up.

North Wales Crusaders were formed and dual-code Wales international Clive Griffiths, pictured left, took charge, leading the club to league and cup double in 2013.

The club have failed to establish themselves in the Championship, Griffiths leaving with Mike Grady and Murray taking charge since.

Grady’s tenure began when Crusaders moved to Queensway, confirming at the time: “Although The Racecourse has been a fantastic venue over the last couple of seasons, it is out of our reach financially.”

After over four years, is it time for a return?
