COLTS BEATEN BY A SOCCER SCORELINE!

In April of the 1983-4 season the Colts team made another visit to the final of the Colts Shield. This time to play a fancied Birkenhead Park team who had the rare privelege of playing a final on their own turf! Sadly in an extremely tight affair the Blues returned home on the wrong side of a 4-3 scoreline!

The MRUFC squad that day contained a number of players who would eventually represent the Club at 1st XV as well as the Senior County side. feature prominently in the clubs future success on and off the field. As well as the Gray brothers; John and Howard there were two offspring of MRUFC ‘royalty’. David Miller’s son, Chris – a winger with less of the fleet footed talents of his father but with the same nose for the try line; and John Taylor’s son Ian, destined to become the oldest player to represent the first team player at the Club.
