CELTIC CRUSADERS coach John Dixon believes his club does still have a big future in Super League.
The Welsh club’s chief watched his side beaten 42-16 by the Giants in what was the Crusaders’ last match to be played on the Brewery Field in Bridgend.
Dixon’s side will play the other two seasons of their three-year Super League licence at Newport’s Rodney Parade.
And the Australian is confident the move will prove vital in the Crusaders’ bid to establish them as a creditable top-flight side.
“We need people to support this team in its young years because there’s no doubt in my mind that this game will flourish and this club will flourish here,” he said.
“And I think we should be positive on the back of what we saw in this game against Huddersfield.
“For three-quarters of the match, there was only one team in it (Huddersfield) but, for the last quarter, there was only one other team in it (Celtic Crusaders).
“That’s something we should hold on to. You can’t fault the spirit.”
