Double Delight For Crusaders

North Wales Crusaders' men's and women's teams secured victories on home soil to mark a successful Sunday at Stadiwm CSM.

Coming just 24 hours after the Rugby Football League approved the takeover of the club by Jamie Elkaleh, North Wales Crusaders marked the start of a new era in fine fashion with victories coming for both the men's and women's team in Colwyn Bay.

Entering the field for the first time in 2024, North Wales Crusaders Women maintained their unbeaten record as they saw off Telford Raiders 38 points to 20 in front of a healthy home support on the North Wales coast.

Coming off the back of an unbeaten inaugural season in 2023, the latest victory will see Jon Burgess' side go into their 2024 league season yet to taste defeat.

For the men's team, an entertaining afternoon followed as they saw off fellow play-off contenders Workington Town to move back into the top six.

Carl Forster's side put themselves under pressure, finding themselves eight points adrift with less than fifteen minutes played.

However, fortunes soon turned for the home side who battled away to go into half-time with the scores at 14 a piece.

Despite taking the lead just two minutes into the second-half, the hosts looked to be heading for a defeat with ten minutes to go as they trailed Workington by ten points.

Fantastic character ensued though, as Forster's side hit back leaving captain Chris Barratt to seal the winner scoring in the final second to give North Wales a 34-32 victory over former Crusaders coach Anthony Murray's Workington side.
