The result may not have been what the Priory Park crowd would’ve wanted, but they can’t have failed to be impressed with the way Macclesfield Blues set out their stall last weekend. Yes they may have lost narrowly to Coventry, but the performance was without doubt the best of the season so far. That gives Head Coach, Giles Heagerty, confidence. Macclesfield Blues have now shown that they have what it takes to compete at this level: now all that’s required […]

BLUES FRIGHTEN THE PANTS OFF COVENTRY Coventry arrived at Priory Park on Saturday fully expecting to blow away The Blues and end their record of having never won at Macclesfield, however, the home side with 3 debutants in the lineup, had other ideas and took the game to Coventry from the start.  At last we saw some stability in the tight which allowed the backs to show their pace and skills to good effect, and defensively The Blues were determined […]

The Blues suffered their fourth home  defeat of the season and still remain win-less, but this Saturday’s performance was by far the most impressive of the season. Macclesfield played host to fourth placed Coventry, and most will have been shocked when The Blues went into half time having dominated proceedings. Despite eventually ending in a loss and coming away empty handed, Head Coach Giles Heagerty could take plenty from the performance. “We certainly deserved a losing bonus point after the […]

Macclesfield were denied a losing bonus point after a impressive performance by a heroic second half comeback from a Coventry side who fought back from 13-3 down to win 13-21. The first points of the afternoon went to Macclesfield as debutant Sam Marland, on loan from the Cornish Pirates kicked a penalty. Coventry responded five minutes later with a penalty of their own kicked by captain Cliff Hodgson who scored the first points of his 16 point haul for the […]

No one expected an easy game at Ealing, and nobody got it. Ealing are top of the league, and last weekend’s performance demonstrated exactly why that is the case. They are the stand-out team at the moment and they will take some stopping. Still, Macclesfield Blues showed a new grit, resilience and determination last weekend even though the game was clearly lost, and that gives Head Coach, Giles Heagerty, hope and confidence that the Blues may just have turned the […]

Macclesfield travelled to away to table topping Ealing Trailfinders this weekend and found it tough going as many expected. The Blues went down early on as the hosts launched a quick-fire counter attack off of debutant Tom Morton’s kick off. Ealing shifted the ball wide quickly and were a try ahead with just moments played. Just two minutes later, the home side doubled their lead and asserted themselves at the scrum, number 8 and captain Danny Kenny going under the […]

The Colts edged a taut encounter with Bolton in which the lead changed five times. Prop Lewis Jones finished the game battered but unbowed, his contribution earning the Man of the Match. The Blues took the lead early with an Ollie Aston penalty. It wasn’t until the second half that they got on the scoreboard again, skipper Tom Leicester touching down after George Phelan had done all the hard work in the maul.

BLUES STILL LOOKING FOR FIRST POINTS Macclesfield Blues took the long journey South on Saturday to face League leaders and promotion favourites Ealing Trailfinders and although they played some good rugby and showed 100% commitment, the result was inevitable given the gulf in playing budgets and strength of squads – Ealing have 32 full time professionals. This Saturday sees Macclesfield play host to the once mighty Coventry who have designs on a return to their glory days when they were the […]

That is the harsh assessment of Head Coach, Giles Heagerty, after a disappointing home loss at the weekend. Macclesfield Blues had the home advantage at Priory Park, but failed to capitalise on this despite a promising opening 30 minute spell. Tynedale proved too tough in the end, though the score was hardly an accurate reflection of the game overall. Macclesfield Blues had plenty of other chances to score, but failed to take them. That in Giles’ view is partly down […]
