John Davies (JD) RIP

John Davies or JD, as he was always known to all at the Club, sadly passed away last week; he had been suffering from cancer for some time, but a recent broken femur was followed by a fatal chest infection.

JD joined Macclesfield in the early ‘60s, then moving over to play at Wilmslow, along with his long time pal and neighbour Barry Limb, John Webster and John Robinson. Barry recalls: “JD played firsts and seconds then, he wasn’t quite sure whether he was a prop, back row or centre”. Besides rugby JD was a keen cricketer/follower, joining in with the boisterous Barmy Army. In recent years he had been a staunch supporter at Macclesfield RUFC, regularly holding court on the stand with his pals. JD had strong political views, which he was quite willing to share with you and was very active in Macclesfield political life; he will have been well chuffed when we finally left the European Union!

We will miss his huge grin beaming out from the stand at Priory Park; we send our deepest sympathies to his wife Shirley son Jonathan and daughter Samantha.

All the best to @ospreys' Sam Cross who's stretchered off after he seemed to twist his knee falling through a ruck. Hopefully a speedy recovery 🙏 #HeinekenChampionsCup

Hard fought, but it's defeat for England Men. They'll play Australia in the Bronze Final at 16:59. #Spain7s

It's a big tackle - on the referee! 💪😬 #HSBC7s | #Spain7s

Now this is what you call a defensive try 💪 Ben Curry does remarkably well to turn the ball over and pop it up to Bevan Rodd who storms through the gap and finds an incredible pass to Aaron Reed who is pace personified 🔥 Great try from @SaleSharksRugby! #HeinekenChampionsCup

AJ MacGinty that is absolutely class 👏 @SaleSharksRugby get the ball out of the maul, Aj MacGinty sees Tom Roebuck in acres of space and finds him with a sublime cross-field kick 💫 Sale swimming along nicely in the first half 🦈 #HeinekenChampionsCup
