Are You Macclesfield in Disguise?

This old sporting taunt was much in evidence at this time of the Club’s history. The first game of the new season was against our nearest and dearest the wah-wahs from down the road, Wilmslow. There had been a trickle of Macclesfield players who had moved to Wilmslow in search of “better rugby” and in this game the Wilmslow half backs were Steve Smith and Steve Midgelow, both ex-Kings and both of whom had featured in various Macclesfield teams over the previous two seasons. Almost by way of providing a conveyor belt of players the Macclesfield props that day, John Robinson and Dennis Oliver, would also move to Wilmslow and play for Cheshire. In this “past versus present” fixture Wilmslow trounced Macclesfield 40-6.
