THANK YOU I’d like to take this opportunity to say a HUGE THANKS to each and everyone of you, who helped in any way to make the 2015-16 the most successful (in terms of playing success) season in the 139 year history of the club. This includes players, coaches, parents, supporters, grounds men, laundry man, gate people, physios, bar staff, catering staff, office staff, captains, 4th officials, referees, cleaners, organisiers and volunteers. The list of individuals is endless, so I wont single anyone […]
Last time Macclesfield Blues plied their trade in National League 1, the season effectively ended before it had barely begun. When you’ve got a limited squad and you lose a whole front 5 in the first game of the season, any team, even one with strength in depth, would struggle to continue to compete. We all know how that season ended, but we’ve also seen the team’s resurgence during a dominant National League 2 North campaign.
This is formal advice, that in accordance with the current Rules of Macclesfield R.U.F.C. Ltd., the Annual General Meeting of the Club will take place at the Clubhouse, Priory Park, on Tuesday 31st May at 7.00 p.m. Agenda 1. Introduction and welcome to members present – Peter Harper 2. Remembrance of members deceased this year – Peter Harper 3. Approval of minutes of AGM held 20th May 2015 – Peter Harper 4. Chairman’s Report – Peter Harper 5. Finance Report […]

What a difference a year makes. At this time last year Macclesfield Blues were relegated from National League 1 after a particularly difficult season. Twelve months on, and they’re heading back there as National League 2 North Champions. So no one can doubt that this year has been a success, but what did Head Coach, Giles Heagerty, really make of this year’s campaign? What pleased him most? Were there any disappointments and frustrations along the way? Did the Blues live […]
