I`m pleased to announce MRUFC have entered into a 2 year partnership with Halliwell Jones Wilmslow, with your local BMW dealership sponsoring both the First Team and the Mini & Junior section of the club.  This is great news for the club and on behalf of MRUFC, I`d like to say `Thanks` to Halliwell Jones Wilmslow and look forward to a mutually beneficial partnership. A particular thanks to Scott Green, Sue Carden & Jonathan Marsh from Halliwell Jones for their assistance and cooperation in setting up this partnership.

 Below is a statement from Halliwell Jones, Wilmslow;

The art of "Shirimoji" , aka, "Buttwriting" is well worth 1m 36 seconds of your time. This is a thing, and we love it. #RWC2019

Of the 45 students attending today’s joint @RuskinHigh and @STM_Performanc @CBRE #AllSchools after school club 15 of those taking part were girls - throwing themselves into the deep end with tackling, presenting and, for the older ones, rucking and scrummaging too #whoopwhoop 🙌

So good to get along to @candnrufc this evening and meet & greet Dawid (@Shavington_Ac ) and Oliver (@RuskinHigh ) as they took part in their first U12s session joining up with Will and Logan (@Shavington_Ac ) making 4 players transitioning to the club for that team already 😊😊

Thanks to the @CBRE #AllSchools for helping to promote our wonderful game. The programme in @candnrufc has raised rugby’s visibility and we saw an incredible 45 year 7-11s boys & girls from @RuskinHigh & @STM_Performanc at the joint after school club #amazing

A fun @CBRE #AllSchools session with the mixed year 7 @Shavington_Ac today - revisiting the tackle and then into games. Some super learning and loads of enthusiasm- thank you 😊😊
