In Touch 71

Club Tour

A disparate bunch of players – past and present, set off today for the sunny shores of Athens.

They will be taking in the many sights of the historic city. Some may venture up to The Acropolis to view the world famous Parthenon and other ancient buildings of great architectural and historical significance. Others may be tempted to visit the Zappeion in the National Gardens of Athens, the building was used during the 1896 Olympic Games as the main fencing hall. Those of an artistic background will not want to miss the Goulandris Museum of Cycladic Art.

The remainder will probably just drink beer for two days!


Cheshire U8s Festival

A great day was had by all involved in the Cheshire U8s Festival on Sunday. Hundreds of happy rugby players had a superb time. Well done to all players, groundsmen, coaches, organisers and 1st team players.


Jamie Pearson

We are very sad to announce the recent passing of Jamie Pearson.

Jamie first played at Priory Park aged 5 and went on to play for the Colts and various senior teams. For the last 3 years Jamie has been involved with coaching one of the mini teams where his son Jack plays.

He will be greatly missed by all and our thoughts go out to Liz, Jack and Olivia, and the rest of Jamie’s family.


Macclesfield Beer Festival

The beer festival will once again be quenching the thirst of many in May. A limited amount of tickets are available from the club office http://macclesfieldbeerfestival.org/

 

 

 

 

 

 


Wharfedale v Macclesfield

We are expecting a large crowd of travelling supporters to make the journey to watch our boys in action for the last match of the season. This one is much more important to Wharfedale than it is to us of course, if we are victorious and Blaydon also win their match, Wharfedale go down!

Please beware that parking will be very tricky as the match coincides with a hiking competition that finishes at Threshfield School, the avenue that leads up to the ground will be full of cars left by hikers.

Kick off at 3.00pm
