Rugby Notes from ‘Clubman’

After a blistering start that saw The Blues score 21 unanswered points in the first twenty five minutes to put Otley to the sword the visitors fought back and in the end although Macclesfield took the five points on offer it was not as comfortable as it might have been and with three – possibly four – games left before the campaign closes it leaves the side sitting much more comfortably in National Two North than they were at the turn of the year.  At the same time results elsewhere in the table saw bottom club – Luctonians – who the Blues visit this weekend go down 28-12 at Tynedale and their situation looks dire as they are now fourteen points behind Blaydon just above the bottom three.  Blaydon themselves having a good day out winning 34-26 at Sheffield Tigers while Wharfedale – who the Blues visit on the final Saturday of April lost out at South Leicester by 27-16 to remain in the bottom three along with Sheffield who gave themselves some hope with a fine 21-17 victory at Leicester Lions.

Marie Curie Collection by MRUFC Veterans

On the morning of Easter Saturday, 31st March, a group of MRUFC Veterans and friends braved the elements and undertook their yearly collection in Macclesfield town centre in aid of the Marie Curie Great Daffodil Appeal.  On the day, a grand total of £779.81 was raised by the group, which will fund about 40 hours of Marie Curie nursing care.  Well done Macc Vets.

Sale Sharks Easter Camp

Over 80 kids attended the Easter Camp at Priory Park. We are told that this is one of the best attended in the country. The two day course was overseen by coaches from Sale Sharks and not only was it great fun but it also provides much needed revenue for the M&J section. More will be planned  – watch this space.

Sale Sharks & MRUFC U11s

Our lads from the U11s section lined up with the stars of Sale Sharks last week, they then had the best seats to watch a thrilling home win against Wasps. Thanks to Sale for organising and special thanks to the players who took time out to chat and sign autographs after the match.

Working Party

Our volunteer army is having a well-earned rest this Sunday. Thanks to Barrie the Pie, the Priory suite is now nearly finished.
