News from the Blues 11 Mar

The Blues have done it again! Macclesfield overcame the odds to pick up another narrow victory against mid-table side Richmond on Saturday.

When they played Richmond at home back in November, the Blues had lost seven out of nine games and survival in the National League One was looking unlikely.

Since then Macclesfield have transformed into a side that can pick up wins both at home and away, with a do-or-die attitude that has guaranteed a late winner on more than one occasion.

In fact Macclesfield have won their last three games in the closing moments of the game, a quality that the side did not possess in the first half of the season.

It was good to see (and hear) such a large number of travelling fans on Saturday who all made the effort to make the trip to London to cheer on the Blues, a decision well made in the end.

Another encouraging sight was the return of Chris Jones, who made a 15 minute appearance at the end of the game. It has been over a year and a half since Chris last featured for the Blues after breaking his leg against Ealing last season.

With the season coming to a close in a month and a half and with the Blues only four points away from Wharfedale in 13th place, it has never been more important to come and cheer on the Blues as they fight their way up the table.

Next week Macclesfield take on Coventry at home, who were able to put in a convincing victory against the Blues in the sunshine back in October, the final score 38-3.

Hopefully the score-line will be much different next week as the side look to make it 6 wins in a row.

Coventry travelled to Blackheath and were able to come away with a 30-8 victory to keep them safely in 9th place.

Ealing put six tries past Old Albanians as they won 32-29, while Tynedale were narrowly beaten 19-18 at Loughborough Students.

Blaydon kept the pressure on Ealing as they won 32-6 against Sedgley Park, as 5th place Fylde beat Rosslyn Park 35-10, who currently hold the 4th spot.

Cambridge stay rooted to the bottom of the table after losing 43-26 against Esher, while unfortunately for Macclesfield, Wharfedale were able to beat Cinderford 22-8 at home.

The Lions were also able to put in a successful performance on Saturday, as they travelled to Burnage and won 55-7.

2s coach Paul Bartle said: “Macclesfield 2s put in a top performance away at Burnage and close the points difference on Preston at the top of the table.

“The set piece was the platform for excellent back play organised by two very lively young half-backs.”

The 3s also won 43-19 against Fleetwood, whilst the Vets lost to Congleton and the 4s were beaten 29-12 against Heaton Moor.
