MACCLESFIELD PLAYERS RECOGNISED

The Cheshire ‘B’ XV that played Lancashire on the 11th December 1984 contained three representatives from the Blues. David Taylor was hooking, with Club and 1st XV captain Martin Ainsley playing at openside and a young Steve Henshall on the bench.

Meanwhile the Cheshire Schools Under 18s had Mike Hall playing at full back. Mike was a rare specimen in the sense that he was at Fallibroome, not one of the well recognised rugby schools of Cheshire or even Macclesfield. Mike would later go on to play with distinction for the Blues 1st XV.
