17th February 2017

Last Weekend

The turning point appeared to be the 2 yellow cards, we conceded 26 points whilst we were down to 13 men. At least we earned a try bonus point as confirmation that the Blues are playing better than a bottom of the league team. 59 – 28

Another rest weekend for the 2nd team.

The 3rd team suffered a surprising defeat at the hands of mid-table Burnage. 11 – 8

The 4th team had a walk over as Sandbach could not get a team together.


This Weekend

We welcome Old Albanian to Priory Park on Saturday, the Blues will be looking for revenge for the 49 – 15 defeat in St Albans. KO 3.00

The Lions head off down the M56 to Chester to try a regain their position at the top of the table. The last visit ended in a very narrow 31 – 29 defeat. KO 2.15

The 3rd team welcome Broughton Park. Smithy’s lads ran out close winners last time. KO 2.15

It should be a close game for the 4th team at Congleton, 2nd position against 4th.  KO 2.15

Good job we didn’t have a home match last Saturday!


Under 14

The Under 14s won this inaugural tournament on Sunday, winning their group convincingly from Wrexham and Bishops Castle.

A tough semi-final win against Newtown saw the boys into the final against Warrington which they won playing with style, tenacity in defence and a desire that they were not going to return to Priory Park without the trophy.
