On Sunday 25th February a Macclesfield Invitation side played Saxons, a team of well known players from senior clubs in the North West. The Saxons won 11-3. The Macclesfield team included a number of schoolboys some of whom would feature for the club in later years. They were; Little (who was a North of England U19 trialist), Joyce, Croxall, and Welch. The game was played in snowy conditions and featured a strong forward performance from the Macclesfield pack who were a stone a man lighter than their opposite numbers whilst Alan McInnes provided a constant threat.
