Deano heads Down Under

Dean Williams bids farewell to Macclesfield Blues and flies down to the land of the long cloud.

Saturday’s win at Tynedale looks like being the last for Dean Williams, for a while at least, as he flies out to New Zealand in a week or so to play rugby in the land of the long cloud; fulfilling a dream he has held for some years now. I`m sure you`d all like to join me in wishing Deano all the very best on his trip Down Under and we look forward to hearing his tales when he returns in December – hopefully to pull on the Blue jersey of Macclesfield Rugby once again.

image3006Deano has become something of a cult figure at Priory Park over the past few seasons and he will sorely be missed – as will the chants of ‘Deano, Deano!’ ringing from the crowd. So why not come down to Priory Park on Saturday when Macclesfield Blues take on league leaders, Ealing Trailfinders, and say your farewells do the Big Man in person? To commemorate his time and long service at Priory Park the Club will be presenting Dean with a small memento after the match. We hope you’ll be able to join us to say adieu.

Dean has been a cornerstone of the Macclesfield Blues squad for a number of years, and his service to the Club has been appreciated by coaches, team mates and supporters alike. Head Coach, Giles Heagerty, paid his own tribute to the second row stalwart:

“Dean has been a huge asset to Macclesfield rugby, not just in stature, but in all he has done. There is no doubting the talismanic value he brings to the team alongside his physicality, and he will be missed.”
“What has impressed me the most is his dedication to training and his consistency in always wanting to improve as a player. We wish him all the best.”
