So now we’ve got the fixture list, Macclesfield Blues know exactly who they’ll be facing in this season’s National League 2 North competition. It’s good to see some old faces: teams against which we’ve had our battles in the past. It’s also good to see some new blood in the division too: teams like Sale FC and Huddersfield. No team should be underestimated in this league, however, whether they’re new to the division or not. Every game will be close, […]
Macclesfield’s Victoria Breast Centre is almost £2,000 better off thanks to a local rugby club’s fundraising drive. Ladies connected to Macclesfield RUFC raised £1,798 through hosting a ladies’ lunch which saw almost 100 attendees dress up in their most glamorous garb and take part in activities including raffles and an auction. A further £145 was raised for the breast screening unit through a separate raffle in support of one of the ladies’ friends who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. […]

On Thursday 14th May Macclesfield Rugby Club held its annual end of season Players’ Dinner at Priory Park. The evening proved to be a great success. The event was attended by over 100 players, guests, the board of directors and Club volunteers. We think it’s safe to say that the evening was very well received.
On Friday the 8th May, 42 Golfers set out on Friday to attack the excellent Davenport Golf course, unfortunately only 36 finished on the 18th green ! This was due to buggies running out of power (honest Matt Harding & John Griffiths!!) and Dom McCarthy & Nick Smith nipping over to Bowden RUFC to collect their 3rd team League Cup .
And so another season at Macclesfield RUFC draws to a close (my 45th) and some of you look forward to taking a break from all things rugby for a few months. For others – Coaches, Committees, Admin Staff, grounds men, the work goes on to ensure that come September we are all ready for the next campaign. I`ve been away for some warm weather training so not entirely up to date with all the achievements of our players, teams and […]

Images of George North lay flat out on the Millennium Stadium turf after a clash with Richard Hibbard sent shockwaves through the rugby world, and concussion became the hot topic. Concussion is a subject that rugby is growing to understand along with the help of other sports such as American Football, as it is now common knowledge that this brain injury is a serious threat to the long […]
Last season may only just have ended, but time stands still for no man – particularly a rugby coach. Many of the players may have their sights set on sunshine and sand, but Head Coach, Giles Heagerty, is simply focused on next season and is already busy making plans for Macclesfield Blues National League 2 North campaign. Who’s leaving? Who’s arriving? Well, the only person with the answer to those questions is the man himself. Here’s what Giles had to […]
Macclesfield Blues may have ended the season with another loss, but at least they finished the season with a bang and not a whimper. They looked keen and eager to carry on, and that fact alone provided all the encouragement Head Coach, Giles Heagerty, needed. He and the team both know that now is not the time for licking wounds; now is the time for dusting themselves down and preparing for the new challenges which await in National League 2 […]
