We’re certainly up for the fight, and we hope all our loyal supporters are up for it too.

Well, that’s the seasonal festivities over with for another year, We hope that all Macclesfield Rugby Club’s members and supporters had a great Christmas, and naturally we wish you all the very best for the New Year. Here’s hoping that you get everything you wish for in the next 12 months. However, it’s now time to get back to work and press our noses to the grindstone. Macclesfield Blues are in a dogfight for the next few months, and will need to find a level of form and consistency if we’re to avoid relegation. We’re certainly up for the fight, and we hope all our loyal supporters are up for it too.

Things definitely didn’t go according to plan in the early part of the season: injuries and a lack of consistency put pay to that. However, with the return of key players like Ryan Parkinson, Chris Jones and Dean Williams, we should be able to add a little bit of extra grunt to the pack. We’ve missed the experience of these seasoned players, and are confident that if we all pull together we’ll be able to maintain our National League One position.

Let’s face it we’re going to need this experience in the next few months. Quite apart from finding time to reschedule the postponed Sedgley Tigers game at Priory Park, we also face the toughest of challenges this weekend when we head down to high-flying Ealing Trailfinders. Challenges don’t really come much tougher than that, do they? We also face challenging away fixtures against Blaydon and Rosslyn Park, as well as what will be sure to be hard-fought home games against Esher, Cinderford, Coventry and Old Albanians. However what will surely prove to be the crucial fixture is the away game at Cambridge later this month. This is definitely a must-win game, and could potentially determine the fate of both clubs in the longer term.

The Blues are ready for the challenge, and have been preparing well for the challenges that lie ahead under the watchful eye of Head Coach and Director of Rugby, Geoff Wappett. The team remains confident that they have ability and determination to rescue the situation. Hopefully with your strong and committed support they will rise to this challenge, and ensure that Priory Park is still hosting National One rugby this time next year.
