Macclesfield Under 7′s
Cheshire Festival – Sunday 27th April
On a glorious spring day the Under 7′s were represented by 5 teams at the festival hosted by Bowden. The four squads were there plus a further team (named the Barbarians for the day) made up of 1 or 2 players from each squad. All the boys put in fantastic performances with the Vultures and Lions making the last eight of the Bowl competition. Both teams extremely unlucky not to progress through to the semi finals.
The other three teams all topped their league and were in the Cup competition. Both the Rhinos and Barbarians were knocked out in the last 16 in very closely fought matches. Matches were against tough competition who had also topped their respective leagues and the games were of the highest standard.
All four squads should be proud of their performances.
The Eagles team played brilliantly throughout the knockout phase and won through to the final of the Cup competition where they met local rivals Wilmslow. The final was of a really high quality with Macclesfield enjoying the best of the first half and edging ahead. In the second half the Eagles had to withstand a fierce comeback from Wilmslow and with the help of great defence they managed to come out on top. An amazing performance full of skill and determination.
So to round up the season Macclesfield are the reigning Manchester festival and Cheshire Cup champions!
