Raging Bull Plate Finals – 5 May st Stockport Rugby Club

Trophies in rugby are a little like buses; they don’t come along very often, but when they do, more than one comes along. Well, potentially at least – nobody’s won anything yet. However, there is a real possibility that in just over a week’s time two of Macclesfield’s rugby teams could be holding a trophy aloft. Both Macclesfield Lions and Macclesfield Fourths have beaten off all competition and will now take their respective places in the Raging Bull Plate Finals on the 5 May, 2012.

The Lions will face stiff competition when they line up against Sedgley Park at Stockport a week on Saturday. Having beaten off competition from  Carlisle, Kendal, Vale of Lune and Birkenhead 2s, the Lions are on a great run of form and must fancy their chances of crowning off a good season with a piece of silverware.

Macclesfield 4ths have also had their best season for quite some time. Having already finished top of the table and won the Division 5 South League, the Fourths will now take on Tyldesley in the Raging Bull Plate final at Stockport on 5 May. The team have been in storming form this year. And have confounded many of those who wrote of their chances of success at the beginning of the season.  The team has only lost 3 competitive games all season and has remained unbeaten since early November. On route to the Plate final the team has beaten off challenges from Ashton on Mersey, Stockport, Thornton Cleveleys, Didsbury Toc and Lymm. One final hurdle is all that remains – Tyldesley.

Here’s hoping that both teams can pull off a fantastic double and bring some silverware back to Priory Park. Well done boys, and the best of luck. Remember, win or lose, you’ve already done the Club proud and we salute you.
