Arrangements for Remembrance Day Sunday

This Sunday, at 11:00 am, it will be 100 years exactly since the guns all silent in Europe, marking the end of World War 1.  At Macclesfield RUFC, in our usual mark of respect, it is important that we have all teams and opposition attend to observe the event.  We are sure all will appreciate the importance of all generations marking this occasion with due respect.

On the day, there shall be a short commemoration inside the clubhouse at the memorial board. For this, we require three or four players to attend at 10:45 am in their school uniform. Perhaps those who have been too injured to play at recent games would like to take part. These players will represent the mini and juniors.

If your child would like to take part in this day, then please send names to Phil Mason. He will then send over further advice on the role – nothing onerous though, we promise.

Please can all teams and opposition follow the timetable below:

10:50-10:55: Teams assemble on the main pitch, in age group order with U6 facing the clubhouse on the 5m line, and moving back through the age groups.

Parents are welcome to take a position on the stands to observe.

10:50 – 10:55: LATEST players assemble (as above) in age order.
11:00: Ruth Lancaster (U9) has kindly agreed to coordinate the event, please can all head coaches assist her.
TOBY JARRATT (U12) will play the Last Post.
STEVE BRANCH (MRUFC Secretary) and Jake Jones (U12) will read the EXHORTATION.
TWO MINUTES silence will follow.
TOBY JARRETT (U12) will play the Reveille.

Following this, will all players please return to the pitch. Representatives are invited to make their way back into the clubhouse.
