North Wales AM looking forward to opener

North Wales regional AM Janet Ryder was first in line to get her Crusaders season ticket ahead of their big opening game against Leeds.

Ryder, who is also patron of the Welsh Rugby League, picked up her season ticket for the 2010 Engage Super League Season at the Racecourse Ground from Crusaders Head Coach, Brian Noble, along with First Team Coach Jon Sharp.

Janet, a huge League Rugby enthusiast said: “Nothing beats the atmosphere and excitement of watching a live rugby league game and I can’t wait to see the Crusaders in action at the Racecourse. The support for rugby league in North Wales is potentially huge and I’m expecting the curtain-raiser against Leeds Rhinos to be a sell-out.

“North Wales has been starved of major sporting events in recent years and I’m sure the people form all over the region will turn out in force to get behind the Crusaders.”

Mike Turner, Commercial Director of the Crusaders praised the support and help that Janet Ryder had given to the club.

“Janet has been one of the main champions of rugby league in Wales and the club has been very grateful for her support,” he said. “She has worked tremendously hard to raise the profile of the game in Wales and we’re delighted to have her on board.

“We always knew that bringing Super League to Wrexham would be well received by the public, but we have been truly overwhelmed by the support from the local community.

“Ticket sales so far have been very encouraging. We are introducing Super League to a brand new set of fans in Wrexham and are looking forward to people across the region coming out and supporting the Crusaders.”
