Sevens Up and Away

Macclesfield built on the sevens success from the previous season probably as much because of the introduction of fast and skillful young players such as Miller and D Jones. When the Manchester qualifying tournament came round there was little surprise that Macclesfield went through unbeaten against Lymm and Oldham. In the tournament itself Miller really started to show his pace and elusiveness as Macclesfield recorded wins over Old Salfordians and Preston Grasshoppers (a senior club of the time) to get through to the quarter-final again. This time against another senior club, Hull and East Riding, the result was different as outstanding performances from Hope, Jones and Corke saw Macclesfield through to the semi-final. In what was declared to be the best game of the tournament, Macclesfield came second best to yet another senior club, Waterloo, who in turn went on to win the tournament. The following day once again featuring David Miller this seven won the Stoke 7s by beating Shrewsbury, Winnington Park and then the hosts Stoke.
