NEW YEAR`S HANGOVER FOR BLUES
The first game of 2016 didn’t go according to plan for The Blues as they came away from Caldy on the wrong end of a 29-24 result. The Blues led with less than 10 minutes left on the clock, but indiscipline – something The Blues haven`t been guilty of all season – cost the Macc Lads dear as Caldy kicked 2 penalties and then hung on in a desperate rear-guard action, to prevent Macc taking the spoils. However, all was not lost as The Blues scored 4 great tries to secure 2 valuable bonus points ( 1 each for scoring 4 tries and losing by 7 or less). This, combined with Sedgley Park losing without gaining any bonus points, means Macclesfield Blues top the table by 14 points, although I`m sure this is no consolation to Giles and the squad who will want to get straight back on the horse at Preston on Saturday.
Team from Saturday;
1. Gadd 2. Moss 3. Millar-Mills 4. Lewis 5. Mantell 6. F. Barker 7. Finniemore 8. Parkinson 9. Brookes
10. Barker 11. King 12. Eaton 13. Brierley 14. Fowles 15. Venables
Replacements; Millea, Kent, C Jones, Berry, O`Regan
For anyone travelling to watch The Blues at Preston, the kick off is 2.30 and they play at;
Preston Grasshoppers RFC
Lightfoot Green Lane
NEW BUSINESS DIRECTOR
Please give Jonathan your full support as he takes over this very difficult job. However, the role will not encompass some of the jobs Bill has done in the past, including certain duties on Match Days, which means we are once again, looking for volunteers to assist during the week and on a Saturday.
