IT WAS FOOTBALL AS THEY KNEW IT

In 1845, the first football laws were written by Rugby School pupils; in 1863 the Blackheath Club decided to leave the Football Association and in 1895 rugby had its own schism as union and league went their own ways.

Whilst all this change was happening in the game of football the Rugby version arrived in the North, and specifically Macclesfield, initially as played by infantry men of the 8th Cheshire Rifle Volunteers who played their first match in Macclesfield in 1873.
