Seibold wants fans to get behind Celtic

Celtic Crusaders’ Anthony Seibold is encouraging Welsh fans to turn up in their numbers to cheer them on against Wakefield in Super League tomorrow night.

Celtic are still hunting for their first home victory in the top flight, but will be buoyed by their recent 30-24 win at Bradford, which broke their Super League duck.

“We love it when we hear all of our supporters out-singing the opposition fans both at home and away,” Seibold said. “Now we’re into a run of home games, it would be great to see even more supporters at the Brewery Field singing their hearts out.

“The Wakefield fans will be travelling en masse as both clubs remember and pay our respects to Leon Walker and his family. It would be great to see both sets of supporters turn out in their droves and sing the place down in what I am sure will be a great game between two motivated teams.

“I’m pleased that we have Kenfig Hill Male Voice Choir at the ground on Saturday. They were fantastic up at Bradford when we won up there two weeks ago and the extra noise from the stands inspired us to our best performance of the season. I’m told that they’re saying that they are our lucky charms. Let’s hope this is the case again this week.”

A minute’s silence will be held for Leon Walker before the match. The Wakefield player died during a reserve match between the two sides on Sunday 22 March at Maesteg RFC and the Super League match scheduled for later that evening was postponed as a mark of respect.
