GREEN MACHINE DISMANTLED BY BLUES Saturday saw The Blues travel to the Yorkshire Dales to take on the much vaunted Wharfedale home record – almost unbeatable at Threshfield over the past few seasons, indeed, the only home defeats this season have been against the top 4 in the League, and the home crowd were expecting an easy win over the Boys from Macclesfield.  However, a fantastic performance, based on dogged defence and some free flowing attacks, saw The Blues leave The Dales with […]

After a great result up in the Yorkshire Dales last weekend, Macclesfield Blues return to Priory Park for the last home game of the season. You might think that home advantage would make the Blues’ favourite for the win, but unfortunately things are rarely that straightforward or predictable. Cinderford are in desperate position. They’re hovering close to the relegation zone, and know that they will have to win both of their remaining fixtures f they are to retain their National […]

 Blues head coach Giles Heagerty was absolutely delighted with his sides victory away at Wharfedale and the way that they stuck to the game plan that was set out before hand. “What is really pleasing is that we had a game plan and we actually went out and executed it. It wasn’t pretty there was still a few moments of madness but actually we talked at half time about the importance of just continuing to do what we did well […]

On an afternoon where it was hard to distinguish whether the summer or winter was coming, The Blues travelled to the Yorkshire Dales to take on Wharfedale. The sun eventually came out to shine on some excellent Blues defence and attacking flair as they ran out 32-14 winners to claim only their third league win of the season. The first half was a relatively close encounter with neither side really taking control and dominating the game. Wharfedale took their one […]

3 MATCHES LEFT IN TOUGH SEASON Macclesfield Blues have 3 matches remaining this season and are looking to finish the season with a flourish.  The 3 matches are against Wharfedale (A), Cinderford (H) and Richmond (A)………..all are winnable and Coach Giles Heagerty will be looking to take something into the close season to build on for next September.  With only 1 Home game (18th April) left, please come along and show your support for the guys who, although they have […]

Macclesfield Blues were not able to secure the first home win of the season against Blaydon, but they did at least come away with a losing bonus point. Whilst this may have disappointed the home crowd, the supporters would surely have been impressed by the strong defensive display by the team in the second half. Blaydon threw everything they had at the Blues, but the team defended resiliently.

BLUES FALL JUST SHORT OF HOME WIN Blaydon were the visitors on Saturday and they left Priory Park mightily relieved to have come away with the points. Yet again a gritty, determined Blues performance saw them fall just short and prompted comments from the opposition of `I can`t believe you`re bottom of the league`(again!!).  The start of the second half resembled the `Siege of Mafeking`with a relentless 20 minutes of Blaydon pressure, particularly from their powerful pack pounding away at the […]

Blaydon came away from Priory Park with a hard fought win thanks to their fly half Andrew Baggett. The stand-off scored a try and kicked five more points in a 7-10 away victory to bottom side Macclesfield. Blaydon flew out of the traps and took the lead on six minutes, after putting some good phases of possession together in Blues territory Baggett spotted a chink in the defence and dived in under the posts, and converted the score himself. The […]
