Acorns Grow Oaks

Building on the success of the mini-rugby initiative at the club the Macclesfield Sports Association introduced a mini-rugby competition for Macclesfield area primary schools. The Association chairman was David Hancox, a club stalwart, and the competition ran uninterrupted for several years. The competition was “introduced” by means of a demonstration game where Broken Cross primary school beat a “first year” Wilmslow Grammar School team by 2 tries to nil. The age difference and definition of Primary School would today mitigate against such a game. And the result was almost certainly nothing to do with the close association between David Hancox and Broken Cross Primary School (where he taught!).
