Rugby Notes from ‘Clubman’

The Blues made the journey into the Midlands and in the end after a battling display came out on the wrong side of a 39-25 score line but at least left for home with a bonus point which, come the reckoning at the end of April, could be all important in the final countdown with the National Two North table looking tight at both ends as I pen these notes and despite Macclesfield losing two games to the weather which will be fitted in next year the season has now reached the ‘half-way’ stage and this Saturday with the Christmas Dinner – I believe virtually sold out – before the game when we entertain a Chester side seemingly in good shape following Saturday’s tight 12-8 victory over table toppers  Hinckley at Vicars Cross.

M&J Christmas Lunch

The Inaugural “Mini and Junior Christmas Carvery” was a sell-out success with over 120 attendees over the two services.  A fantastic atmosphere with Mike Ransom not getting the memo to NOT dress up – but he’s a good sport (or so they say).  Kids as always impeccably behaved and respectful of our club, simply enjoying the food and drinks on offer (soft ones for the kids obviously”.

We will be repeating the event next year and hopefully making it grow even more!!!


Cheshire U18s

Great day for Cheshire U18’s Rugby beating Lancashire 32-31 at Preston. Always good to play on a 4G pitch so no washing dirty kit!! James & Harry Oliver played with their mate Will Davies – 3 Macc Lads helping topple the Red Rose!! 



Merry Christmas from Macclesfield RUFC

We hope everyone has a great time over the festive period.
