Macclesfield took the short trip to north west rivals Fylde as they looked to finish a disappointing first half of the season with a positive result. It was very much a tale of two halves at the Woodlands Memorial ground as Macclesfield stayed in touch and competed strongly throughout the first period but this strong start seemed to take the wind out of the Blues’ sails as they looked tired and lagging behind the hosts during the second period. The […]

David Marwick, has been an ever present in the Macclesfield pack over the past seasons but at the beginning of this year’s National One campaign he was appointed as a forwards coach. He has spoke about the change in attitude and approach he has had to make over the past months. “In terms of the change of attitude, I have got to put a coach’s head on and think about the team as a whole but in terms of my […]

BLUES AMBUSHED IN FOREST The Blues made the long trek to Cinderford in The Forest of Dean on Saturday and were met with an early onslaught which had the game in the bag for the Foresters in the first 25 minutes.  The Blues were caught defending too narrow on a couple of occasions leading to cross kicks being turned into tries, add in some poor tackling and some pinpoint conversions and the deficit was 35 points before the Blues had shaken off the […]

Sometimes when things aren’t going according to plan, you just have to make difficult decisions. It happens in rugby, just as it happens in life. That’s was the dilemma facing Head Coach, Giles Heagerty last weekend at Cinderford. He believes in giving the players responsibility and letting them make the calls on the field, but when things aren’t going right then you just have to make the difficult call and tell players exactly what they need to do. That was […]

Head coach Giles Heagerty was left disappointed after his team travelled to second bottom Cinderford and failed to come away with anything. The Blues were picked apart in the first 25 minutes by a fluid Cinderford attack. “I’m disappointed that performance. The first try was a little fluky but ultimately the tries have come from us missing tackles and you can’t miss tackles in national one. We’ve kept the ball in the second half, and it wasn’t pretty but we’ve […]

Macclesfield travelled south to face fellow strugglers Cinderford in the hunt for their second away victory of the season and also to begin to close the gap on the rest as we reach the half way point of the season. The Blues were without captain Mike Finnemore and vice-captain Jordan Brookes as they made the trip, but experienced head and last year’s captain Tom Eaton skippered the side from scrum half with Adam Greendale at fly-half with scrum half Ollie […]

Macclesfield Colts encountered top of the table Anselmians at Priory Park, performing well in patches, but eventually losing out six tries to three. Two tries from Man of the Match Ben Hadfield and an Ollie Aston conversion got the Blues to within five points at half time. Aled Williams try was the only reply in the second half for the home side, after he won a foot race to the ball for the second time in two weeks , to […]

BLUES UNDONE BY INDISCIPLINE The Blues played host to Wharfedale on Saturday in front of a large Festive crowd, but went down by 24 – 32 despite leading by 17 – 12 at the break.  The visitors took full advantage of  Macclesfield having 2 players sent to the sin bin by scoring 20 unanswered points in the time Macc had 14 (13 at 1 point) players on the pitch.  That was undoubtadly the difference and is another harsh lesson for The Blues to take on […]

Whist it would have been great to end the first half of the National 1 season with a win at Priory Park, it just wasn’t meant to be. Despite a great first half performance and some thrilling attacking rugby, Macclesfield Blues came up short against a spirited and determined Wharfedale side. Ill- discipline and one or two slightly dubious officiating decisions put paid to any hopes of the home side ending the season on a high. Still, the commanding nature […]

The Colts were beaten by the last kick of the game in a tight encounter against local rivals Stockport. Bouncing back from conceding a try in the first minute, the Blues turned round at half time 10 -5 in front. Matt scored the first try, cutting inside from a pass from Mike after the backs had shifted the ball down the line, following some straight running from Ben. Ollie secured the extra two points with a well judged conversion from […]
