News from the Blues 25 Sept

Four matches, four defeats. Not the start anyone at Macclesfield Rugby Club was hoping for and not the start that was expected.

Getting out of a bad run of results is a massive challenge, especially when you’re coming up against sides like Ealing and travelling to on-form side Cinderford.

Blaydon and Sedgley Park are also good teams and on their day can provide a challenge for any side in this league.

So while it is discouraging that luck has not yet turned our way at Macclesfield, it seems only patience will reward our desire for some well-earned victories at Priory Park.

And we might not need to wait for much longer, as next week we face Cambridge, who have also suffered a difficult start to the season.

Their only win this year has come against Loughborough Students, who are sitting just above us with only one bonus point.

Cambridge have lost heavily to Coventry, and been beaten at home by Cinderford and Rosslyn Park, putting them third from bottom with six points.

Despite this the match against Cambridge will not be an easy one, as both sides are battling to get out of the dreaded relegation zone.

We can only get behind the lads playing on Saturday and be the difference that spurs them on to a Blues victory that will begin our crawl back up the table.

Elsewhere in the league, last week’s opposition Ealing Trailfinders have proved why they are one of the most feared sides in the league, as they enjoyed a 56-24 victory against promotion-pushers Tynedale.

Coventry, who Macclesfield will face in two weeks’ time, beat Loughborough Students 41-34, continuing the recently promoted side’s miserable run of the form in the National League 1.

Elsewhere in the club the 2’s also were beaten 19-28 against Preston, 2’s Coach Paul Bartle praised his team’s fight against the bigger side:

“Blues started well against a very big and strong Preston side. We stayed on top until the last 30 minutes when Preston’s superior fitness and strength carried them away.

“The Blues continued to show good spirit but ultimately made a few too many mistakes.”

The 3’s and 4’s both enjoyed wins in their league, with the 3rd team winning 38-25 against Rossendale and the 4th team beat Acton Nomads 39-7.

The 5’s cruised to a 76-10 victory against Ashton on Mersey, whilst the Senior Colts were beaten by Chester 31-57.

Make sure you make the trip down to Priory Park on Saturday 29th September at 3.00pm where the Blues come up against Cambridge in the National League 1 clash.
