Jeremy Bostock player profile

This week we have a massive stalwart of MRUFC (in every way), Jeremy Bostock. Known at the Club simply as Boz, he’s a one-club man, who has achieved great things during his 36 year playing career, and is still as wholeheartedly enthusiastic as when he was playing as a school boy at Kings and a colt for Macclesfield.

At Kings, he was coached by Peter Matthews, John Melling and Reg Davenport, names from the Macclesfield of old. He gained his school colours and toured Australasia; capped by Cheshire at U18s and U21s, and of course later many full caps whilst playing in the Macc first team. He joined the 1st XV whilst studying at Lancaster University, 27 years ago in the days of Cusani, Harding, Taylor and Mannion, playing 1st XV rugby for 15 years.

Boz won many league titles and Cheshire Cups with the 1st XV and the double-double-bubble (league and cup titles) with the 2nd XV, and even played at Twickenham in the County Championship final.  He’s captained the first, second, third, vets and currently fourth team. Rugby men he’s played with and against are a formidable list: Wayne Dooley, Bob Kimmins, Dave Strettle, Ben Foden and Steve Diamond.  One particular match he recalls is beating Sale in the semi-final of the Cheshire Cup back in the 90s: “The Sale number 8 was a formidable player and Manchester Bouncer, after knocking Dave Cussani out cold he was sent back to the changing rooms where he completely demolished the door with his foot”.

Boz loves the camaraderie of the game; he relishes rugby tours and is eagerly looking forward to the trip to Majorca in April.  As a Chartered Accountant and Partner with Thompson Wright, he’s always trusted to be the Sockmeister (holder of the beer kitty) on tour. 

Jeremy lives in Holmes Chapel with his wife and two daughters and still trains – irregularly!

Only one result to 'round up' today, but it's a crucial 5 points for the 1st XV, who are now top of the table after Rossendale lost over at Stockport. Here Tommy Taylor (Defence Coach) gives his views on the match. The lads now head into a well-deserved break, and face Blackburn up at Ramsgreave Drive in a fortnight.
