In Touch 40

Last Weekend

A convincing win for the Blues against a new look Wharfedale 41- 15

The Lions had a difficult start to the season at Sedgley Park 41 – 22

An eclectic mix of players in the 3rd team struggled against Vale of Lune at home 24 – 53

The season started a little early for the 4th team L – W

The Junior Colts started the season as they mean to go on at Caldy 0 – 20

A depleted Senior Colts team started well against Wilmslow at home but having only 11 players was always going to be an issue 21 – 32

Next Weekend


The Blues travel to Chester this Saturday brimming with confidence after a strong start to the season. Our hosts let eight tries in on Saturday against Tynedale.  Kick off 3.00pm

The Lions entertain Preston GH at Priory Park and are looking to bounce back from Saturday’s set back. Hoppers had a narrow win against Sale at the weekend. Kick off 3.00pm

The 3rd team are off to Rochdale who also lost last Saturday. Kick off 3.00pm

A fully tanned and rested 4th team welcome Oswestry to Macclesfield. Oswestry had a narrow loss against Knutsford in their first match. Kick off 3.00pm



The Junior Colts have their first home game against Chester who were thrashed at home last Sunday. Kick off 12.30pm

No game for the Senior Colts this Sunday


Can anyone put a year on this event? Does anyone remember going? Not bad value – £1 entry including free drink. Men only!?

"Losers make excuses. We needed to be better and we weren't good enough." Typically honest from Ronan O'Gara after defeat in last season's @ChampionsCup final. Will La Rochelle go one better on Saturday?
