Harry Woods

Attached is a picture of the Macclesfield RUFC U7’s Match Day Mascot – Harry Woods – taken with Macclesfield Blues hooker Sam Moss on the occasion of his 250th appearance for the Blues!!!

A convincing 41 – 15 win for the Blues against Blaydon.  Both teams were relegated from National 1 last season and fancied their chances – a great day out for the Mini and Junior team the U7’s.

Man of the Match

As the Chairman said ‘How can you not award the Man of the Match award to the one who scored 31 points’

Well done Lewis, you have the second highest tally of points in the national leagues and the most tries scored in the league 2N. And that is after missing the Chester match!
