OLD IN THE LEGS

Following yet another plea for experienced players to forsake retirement and continue playing in lower teams in order to provide tangible encouragement to younger players finally Macclesfield were able to select a Vets team for the first time. Players must be over 28. The average age is in the 30s. This is in every sense the start of a Golden Era, after many seasons of trying to maintain the playing strength of the club against falling player registrations for the first time there was a real step for players to extend their playing careers and their membership of the rugby club. It was a slow start initially just one game against a Widnes Vets side who had a full season of fixtures scheduled. In time Macclesfield would field as many as three different sides with Vets status.
