Rugby Notes from ‘Clubman’

A good Saturday for Macclesfield Rugby Club with all four sides recording emphatic victories in their various leagues and not so good for the England team who came second best against a fired up and confident Scotland up in Murrayfield to throw the Six Nations wide open with just a couple of games left and what about that Scot with a Welsh name who scorched in for an excellent brace of tries………..ah well just a little matter of March 10 in Paris and Ireland at HQ a week later to finish it off with Ireland currently in the hot seat unbeaten in three.

Postponed Matches

Unfortunately we are victims of the weather once again. The Beast from the East has put paid to any rugby at Priory Park this weekend.

All matches are postponed

Five from Five

It’s been a long time since we had a clean sweep over a weekend. Congratulations go out to all players from the Blues, the Lions, the 3rd team, the 4th team and the Colts. We can’t expect to win every game of course but, it feels like we have turned a corner.

Blues 31 v Sheffield 15

Preston GH 19 v Lions 42

Wilmslow 26 v 3rd Team 28

4th Team 42 v Northwich 12

Colts 17 v St Helens 12


Junior Colts Cup Match

The U17s take on Altrincham Kersal in the Quarter Final of the cup on 8th March. This is an away match but it is worth the short trip to watch the future of Macclesfield RUFC take to the field.


Mini & Junior Tours

You may or may not be aware the U13’s, U10’s & U8’s are touring in May. 

They have managed to get a deal with oddballs (charity for testicular cancer who specialise in rugby wear) to get tour kits and bobble hats for all the children going on the tour. We currently have two very generous sponsors already and need one more to secure the deal. 

The cost is £850 for your company logo to be printed on the shirts and you would of course get a shirt 🙂

If anyone is willing or knows someone who might be, please get in touch for more details

RFU Raffle

The deadline for the raffle has now been extended until the 16th March. Please get your money and stubs back to the office as soon as you can. If you cannot find your tickets, there are plenty at the club.


Super Saturday

The 17th March is going to be a big day at Priory Park! It is St Patrick’s Day and in addition to all the normal shenanigans, the Blues take on Luctonians and the 4th team entertain Lymm.
