News from the Blues 5 Nov

Many supporters at the start of the season would have hoped that by Guy Fawkes Night Macclesfield might have rocketed up the league.

Instead the Blues chances have fizzled out and we’re still finding it hard to replicate our good form from this time last year.

Last week’s result against Tynedale put us in good stead for the Richmond game, although it was always going to be a tough fixture.

The loss took us back down to 14th place as fellow relegation-battlers Loughborough Students picked up a 37-17 win away at Tynedale to jump ahead.

However, to come so close after 80 minutes of desperately trying to turn the result can be frustrating.

And as the days grow shorter and colder, picking up results will not get any easier and every point will be hard-fought for.

Things could start to turn around as we begin to approach the Christmas break as we welcome back returning players from injury and look to tighten up the defence.

Fylde away next week is always going to be a tough fixture, but they have dropped points to Old Albanian and Wharfedale, and only narrowly beat struggling Sedgley Park 12-11 back in September, so it will be hard to anticipate the score line.

Further down the line, December could be the month that turns our fortunes around.

With fixtures against Wharfedale, Old Albanians and Sedgley Park; all in the bottom half of the table and two of the matches at home, Blues will be hoping to enter the break with some Christmas cheer.

First though Blues make the trip up to Fylde, who currently sit in 8th position with 28 points.

It is as much as battle in the middle of the table as it is at the bottom, as from 6th to 10th place is only separated by three points.

Fylde suffered a heavy 52-29 defeat against on-form Rosslyn Park on Saturday, who steal the top spot from Ealing Trailfinders.

Ealing suffered their first loss of the season so far, as Old Albanians shocked everyone to travel to London and beat them 31-25.

Esher enjoyed a 51-29 victory away at Cinderford, whilst Blaydon also picked up a win at Sedgley Park.

On Sunday Coventry hosted Blackheath and recorded a narrow 13-10 win, with just one try scored a piece.

Meanwhile the Lions enjoyed a strong 49-12 win over Stockport, keeping them close to the top of the table in 4th place, one point behind Sedgley Park 2s with a game in hand.

Macclesfield 4s also enjoyed a strong win, beating Heaton Moor 44-7, whilst the 3s match was postponed.

The Vets were the third team to come home with victory as beat Congleton 32-26.
