Podcast hits 100 listeners in week 1

While we all endure this baron rugby spell and try to entertain ourselves with classic games on TV, online Fifa tournaments, Strava contests and Zoom meeting based quizzes, there is now something else to help kill time before the new season begins. The Club has launched the Macc Rugby Podcast, a new show that seeks to discuss all things Macclesfield Rugby Club.

Hosted by the 1st XV Performance Analyst and MaccRugbyTV producer Matt Coleridge and long term club man Franky Barker, the show invites guests from all areas of the club to reflect on how the club has brought great joy to their lives whether it be on the pitch, in the clubhouse or both. The show comes out every Wednesday, with debut episode going live last week (6th May), featuring club Chairman Stephen Branch, 1st XV Head Coach Andy Appleyard and Captain Tom Morton. 

But this is certainly not a 1st XV fan show, in the up and coming episodes we will hear from our developing Ladies team, a number of club legends, the ever growing mini and junior section, members of the 3rd and 4ths and in the near future some special guests from the past. Come on a journey with us and find out more about the clubs present, past and future. #Oneclub #maccrugby

Since launched we have already had over 100 listeners and the podcast is now available on the Apple Podcast App as well as Podbean. Just search “Macc Rugby”

Matt Coleridge was excited about the new venture when appearing on Mike Wein’s Saturday afternoon show on Silk FM, ”We have had the idea to do this for a few years but with the season being cut short it gave us the chance to actually get it started. What we really want to do is bring all areas of the club together, and let our guests tell us about what it is they enjoy about their  experiences of Priory Park. I hope everyone enjoys it and that we can provide some entertainment until we are playing again, and beyond.”
