Cheshire Plate Quarter Finals vs Ellesmere Port

On a mild but soggy Sunday morning the Macc squad assembled early and quickly got into a sharp warm up session admirably led by Seargeant Major Elden Burke and the rest of the coaches, in the hope of avoiding the previous few weeks sleepy starts. Macc had a big squad and Ellesmere Port had a flat 12, with one player just showing up in the nick of time before kick-off.

Refereeing duties were handed to Club Stalwart and ex-1st team scrum half Andy Rice. Jason Duffy the England U16 coach was also present to cheer along the Macc boys and look to see where his hard work during training might pay off.

He was quickly rewarded with a number of fast tries within the first few minutes. Macc were 4-0 up with the first 5 mins. Macc were turning over ball, holding up mauls, and doing fast rucking which supplied the backs with quick ball which was exploited by the fast lads out wide.

The squad was rotated blooding a number of new players into the action in their first games for Macc. All 7 permissible subs were used and the lads handled themselves admirably. The waiting subs were put through their paces, and kept warm by some excellent technical coaching by Mr. Burke, involving the breakdown and tackling practice.

The final score was 12-2 to Macc, and now proceed to the final. The draw will be made in a few weeks after the other results have been collated around the county.

A number of awards went to the following lads for their valuable contributions during the game and in training :- Jack Bray, Ethan Burke, Ethan Hadfield, Ian Barton, Mathew Spraks-Welch and T-J Garret…well done lads! The independent coaches also mentioned Harry Owens, Jack Bray and Jamie Downes for their excellent work at the breakdown, and as usual James “Windy “ Miller for his usual master-class and stewardship at fly half.

Ellesmere Port were a great bunch of lads, and had one very tall rangey runner who was very hard to bring down. They showed excellent fighting spirit, never gave up, and displayed perfect sportsmanship.
