Signing Sunday!

Signing Sunday!

The Blues are delighted to announce six additions to their squad as they look to build on the success of 2015/16 season on their return to English Rugby’s third tier. 

Four of the signings come in the forwards, and all have experience of being involved in a professional set up. Two lock forwards join Giles Heagerty’s squad with Ollie Parkinson joining from Rotherham Titans, the second rower also spent time with Sedgley Tigers last season. He’s joined in the second row ranks by Matt Jackson formerly of Rotherham and Sandbach.

In the back row, Josh Redfern also joins Macclesfield from Rotherham. Redfern joined the Titans at the beginning of last season from Sheffield Tigers, the 22-year-old was described as “a big lad with a lot of natural talent who’s a very good ball carrier” by Rotherham coach Lee Blackett.

The other signing in the back row, is former Sale Shark, Liam Parfitt who spent some time on loan at The Blues in their last stint in National One.

In the backs, Macc announce two additions. At centre, Lewis Winterbottom, a respected youngster out of the Leicester Tigers academy, who will add depth to a key position for The Blues.

Winger, Colin Dickson links up with Macclesfield. Dickson was once part of the Worcester Warriors academy, and worked with Heagerty in the England Counties set up.

Head Coach, Heagerty is very pleased with the signings Macc have made so far this season, and reiterates the point that The Blues want to be a very competitive side next season.

“I’m very pleased, we’ve added a lot of experience, the signings make the squad competitive and add a lot of needed depth due to the attritional nature of National One Rugby, these signings give us the ability to put out strong sides week after week, whilst maintaining the fitness of our players.”

“Experience is key, and the majority of these signings have experience of life in a professional environment, we have a lot of exciting young talent at Macclesfield already but it is important that we partner that with the right experience and right attitudes in the squad to make us competitive in National One.”
