News from the Blues 14 Jan

The Blues gave supporters at Priory Park a reason to cheer on Saturday with a spirited performance against Cinderford that earned them five points and takes them closer to escaping the relegation zone.

It was their second win in the last four games and now leaves them with a 14-point gap to Wharfedale in 13th place.

If the last two performances can give us any indication on Macclesfield’s chances of staying in the National League One, that gap might disappear very quickly in the next few weeks.

Dave Marwick will be pleased that he managed to cap off a solid performance with two tries, whilst Dean Williams, Billy Robinson and Tom Davenport proved yet again how influential they are back in the starting line-up.

Tom Eaton will also be pleased with his kicking, scoring three penalties and three conversions.

The victory was spoilt slightly by the news that the talented Ryan Parkinson has dislocated his finger on his first start since breaking his arm against Coventry at the start of October.

The unfortunate injury could mean several months out for Ryan, who has not had the best of luck with fitness this season after breaking his hand before the season to start his run of injuries.

Next week the Blues travel down to face Cambridge, who conceded a whopping 16 tries against Rosslyn Park on Saturday with the final result coming to 104-5.

Macclesfield enjoyed a 36-10 victory against Cambridge in September and will be expecting to win by a similar amount when they travel down for the 2.00pm kick-off.

Sedgley Park also suffered defeat at the hands of Richmond, who secured a 32-13 home win to stay in 9th place.

Loughborough Students were beaten 27-6 at home against Coventry, whilst Ealing were able to narrowly beat Tynedale 25-22.

Old Albanians are now up in fifth position after beating Blackheath 32-27, an impressive feat for the recently-promoted side.

And finally, Fylde were able to shock 2nd-placed Blaydon by winning 23-19 at home.

Elsewhere in the club the 2s enjoyed a 25-21 win against Preston Grasshoppers, whilst the 3s pulled off a narrow 12-8 win against Rossendale.

The 4s were able to beat Acton Nomads 42-7, but the Vets lost 47-22 against Broughton Park.
