Wartime rugby invasion of football ground

True to the town’s love of sport in all guises the Football club hosted a rugby match in which several internationals of the day played when a Macclesfield XV played the 81st Regiment RA. As the 81st were essentially a Welsh Regiment (Port Talbot) it is no surprise to see so many South Walians in their line up but it might be a surprise to see an Argentine “international” in the Macclesfield line up. The long standing link between Kings School and the Rugby Club was maintained as two Kings School masters played for the Macclesfield XV. Actually, Stan Taylor was still a schoolboy at the time but AA Arnold was a founding member of the club.
