Above all it is about having fun while continuing to develop the basic skills and core values of the game: Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline & Sportsmanship. The core values will continue to be monitored and recognised with the awarding of “MRUFC Blue Laces” by our team of “Blue Leaders”

Following all home games and training sessions the clubhouse and Sin Bin Bar will be open for hot food and drinks. Please remember this facility is available for all to use, both players and supporters, so please ensure to drop in. Please ensure no muddy kit / boots in the clubhouse, and well-behaved dogs on leads. {Dogs are allowed at the club but, must be on leads at all times and are not allowed on any playing surface.}

We also usually have training sessions on Wednesday evenings at 6pm and on a Saturday focusing on core skills. Saturday sessions will be held at 1.00pm if the Senior 1st team are playing at home, so that the kids can ballboy and we can all enjoy the match day atmosphere. If the 1st team are playing away or have no game, we will train at 10am on Saturdays. All training sessions and matches will be communicated and managed through the Teamer App with further team info communicated via the team WhatsApp Group. For access to the Teamer App or WhatsApp group, please contact Ruth.

We are asking people to buy £5 worth of tickets every month (so the cost of a beer or a glass of wine) numbers have fallen over the last 12 months so we are looking for some new members.

What we have spent the money on so far:

– Pitch Drainage                                                – New Balls

– Post Protectors                                                 – New kit bags for age groups

– Container to house the training gear           – Drinking bottles for the kids

– First aid kits                                                   – Signs for the clubhouse

– Food for touring teams                                  – Pendants and Shield for touring teams

– Website access for Coaches                         – Air horns and loud hailers for festivals



Macclesfield rugby Under 12’s request all players must have a responsible adult present for all training and matches.

We are lucky to have such well-behaved children overall. However, we want a fun, competitive and most importantly safe environment and will therefore be strict in our encouragement of players to stop when the whistle blows, to listen/concentrate to coaches and to pay attention. Please reinforce this message on the way to the club on a Sunday morning.

Kindest regards,

Under 12’s Coaching Team – Mike, Ruth, Paul, Simon, Tristan, Lloyd and all our “Blue Leaders”

"Losers make excuses. We needed to be better and we weren't good enough." Typically honest from Ronan O'Gara after defeat in last season's @ChampionsCup final. Will La Rochelle go one better on Saturday?
