Macclesfields newly formed Mini/Junior section eventually played their first fixture against another club, Wilmslow. The game was played at Kings School and comprised nine players a side. At the time it was reported to be the first of its kind played to be played in the North West. The Macclefield team that day included Graham Jenion who would eventually become the club’s highest try scorer in a season, and David Taylor. Both would go on to play with distinction for Sale.
