Pri­ory Park young­sters ex­cel at fes­ti­val

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORS -

A GLO­RI­OUS day at Stock­port fes­ti­val saw Mac­cles­field’s U11s (right) field two teams, the Sharks and the Tigers.

While the Tigers per­formed bril­liantly to fin­ish as run­ners-up in the Shield, the Sharks brought back the cup as fes­ti­val win­ners.

The tour­na­ment was split into two groups and the Sharks won their group and then the semi-fi­nal against Vale of Lune. In the fi­nal they saw off Wilm­slow to emerge as cham­pi­ons.

The Tigers came third and pro­gressed to the shield fi­nal, but had to set­tle for sec­ond spot.

The club’s U9s were joint-win­ners in their first fes­ti­val out­ing, shar­ing the suc­cess with Lymm.

After a draw and two em­pahtic wins in the groups, they qual­i­fied for a semi-fi­nal against Sand­bach. Though that ended in a 4-4 draw the ju­nior Blues qual­i­fied for the fi­nal as they’d scored the first try.

Against Lymm a hard-fought clash ended with­out any score and as they couldn’t be sep­a­rated they shared the prize.
