“We should have won”! Came the cry once again. If the Blues had won the matches that they ‘should’ have won, we would be in a more comfortable place. As it is, we are looking forward to shorter away match travelling next season. 18-21
No other adult matches were played last weekend, even so the 3rd team have gained promotion to the new Championship. Congratulations to all.
Another home match this Saturday for the Blues, this time Blackheath take the railroad north. Expect some top quality, fast, free running rugby. KO 3.00pm
The Lions hope to maintain their league position as they welcome Chester to Priory Park. We are hoping for an early kick off on the main pitch. KO 1.00pm (TBC)
After gaining promotion, the 3rd team have a great opportunity to claim the second spot in the league. A win at Warrington in the penultimate game could see Smithy’s boys leapfrog Wirral. KO 3.00pm
Even a home win against whipping boys Trafford Metrovick leaves the 4th team relying on results from third position Congleton. This will be our lads’ last match this season, but Congleton have three matches left which could see them snatching our promotion position! KO 3.00pm
This is the last formal lunch of the season and there are still a few places left, book as soon as you can please – firstname.lastname@example.org

History of Macclesfield RUFC
There is bags of really interesting information about the history of our club on the website. There is even a video starring our very own, in house luvvie – Wilkey.
Keep an eye open for our very own Mike Keeling taking to the field this Saturday. If selected, he will have a run (walk) out for the 4th team as they take on Trafford Metrovick.
Mike must be the only playing member that played for MRUFC when we were based at Tytherington. Unless you know better?
It will leave us short of Gate Staff though!
The Players Awards Dinner will take place in the Prior Suite on 4th May at 7.00pm. This is always a popular night so grab a table whilst you can. Just £20 per head.
There has been a mistake with the cost of the annual Sporting Dinner, it should be £40, not £45. Apologies for any confusion.
There are still a few places available, make sure you book as soon as you can – email@example.com.
It will be a great night, you really don’t want to miss it!
