The Northern Rail final (Blackpool) holds a special place with me. Last year I went with my farther, who used to go to every game back in the day.

Last year was the first time he had seen Halifax play in a long while the result and weather could have been better but it was a good day. It was the last day I spent with my farther as 2 days later he died. I have now moved to a place called Kitimat, in the north of British Columbia, Canada and will not make the game this year. I will however be glued to my PC as always, reading the build-up and then watching the game willing Halifax to win and thinking about my Dad.

I did last weekend (Canada day) get over 300 people singing this Fax is on Fire. I am spreading the word and will try and connect the pc to the TV so I can introduce the Canadians to a tougher game than ice Hockey.

Sad but great story mate something you will never forget the rest of your life, I will always remember my 70 odd year old Grandad almost picking me up off the floor (he was only a small man I am 6 foot 2) in a hug at Wembley when we won the cup in 1987.
Lets hope the lads do the business and beat what we have to accept is the best team in our league, we can do it if we concentrate and put some pressure on Liam Finn instead of standing in admiration.
We will be there.

Touching story and great to see Fax fans flung far and wide across the globe. Thinking of AT's story, over the years Halifax RLFC must have cut deep into people's lives. It certainly has mine for 30 years.

Some amazing fans following an amazing club.

I booked my tickets this morning too and because I enjoyed it so much last year I am doing exactly the same again. I have booked in a box and although it`s a bit more expensive I thought it was good value for money.
You get free parking , free programmes and a hot & cold help youself buffet with sweets and as much tea /coffee as you can drink. You had your own outside seating too, so it was nice to keep popping in and out throughout the game for coffee and something to eat .The food was really good and there was plenty of it so although it was a bit pricey at £60 + vat when I added it all up and saving the added hassle of finding somewhere to eat in Blackpool and a keepsake gift to take home with you all in all it was well worth it.
Last year Leigh was in the section around us however this year it`s the Fax end so that will be even better for when we win. :CLAP:
YOU CAN LEARN FROM THE PAST BUT NOT RELIVE IT.YOU CAN HOPE FOR THE FUTURE BUT CAN NEVER BE SURE THERE WILL BE ONE.

Greetings you Faxers , hope you are all looking forward to your Seaside trip ?As my beloved Leigh will not be there ,Charlie will be donning his Flat Cap , i was made an Hononary Flat Capper at the begining of the season :shock: however i do have friends in both camps , namely Mick aka Bentleyman ,having shared a few drinks with him before last years final .

Anyway Charlie can recommend the Lifeboat Pub not far from the ground and the Swift Hound , near the ground , i met a few Fax fans in here last year , you are all welcome at the Tower Circus Saturday night , when Littlerich will be catching cannonballs in his mouth , and doing a fireating act , hope to see ya all there .

Im hopeless at predictions but will go for a score of Fax 16 - Fev 30 .

For you Faxers staying overnight , Charlie can recommend the Fernroyd Hotel , in the North , very clean and reasonably priced , but im staying in the Cliffs Hotel , North Shore , very well priced , good food , late evening entertainment , or try thr Big Blue on the Pleasure Beach , they do roome for about £100 a night , but the rooms fit up to 4 people so you save that way the Buffet Breakfasts are very good , eat as much as you want , hope this helps someone . :thumb: :thumb:
