I can’t think of a single instance of a team relocation to another city solving that team’s problems. Can you?
Now I can recall quite a few moves:
- Kent Invicta to Southend
- Cardiff Blue Dragons to Bridgend
- Huyton to Runcorn to Prescot to St Helens
- Blackpool to Trafford to Chorley to Blackpool
- Nottingham I think moved to Rotherham
That’s just from memory and doesn’t include any of the myriad London moves, the ludicrous Gateshead-Hull merger or the infamous Sheffield-Huddersfield fiasco.
Not a single one worked. So as much as I want Celtic to succeed, I cannot share Mr Seibold’s optimism. I just hope he’s right.
I note the Crusaders are intent on taking a game to Wrexham in 2010 and that’s a location which might just be their ultimate salvation.
