What ever became of these likely lads?

The local paper produced on the 3rd February carries an interesting report of a return match between Broken Cross and Central Schools (both schools are now one, Macclesfield Academy), neither had or have had a record of playing rugby as a school sport and yet this was return match so there was some history. Possibly teachers turned Macclesfield “stars” (such as John Webster, Alun Evans) were involved? None of the players involved were to gain any fame with Macclesfield later on nevertheless ‘Dai’ Jones, who was teaching at Kings School, was credited with initiating interest in rugby at Broken Cross and in helping to put together this historic local fixture.
