Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - TUG OF WAR

ON Sun­day, Wood Treat­ment Bosley Tug of War Club com­peted at the South West Open Cham­pi­onships in Bristol.

This was the club’s first com­pe­ti­tion since the re­cent tragic events at WTL In­ter­na­tional in Bosley.

As a mark of re­spect to those who lost their lives, and to all of those af­fected by the in­ci­dent, the team wore black arm­bands.

All of the tug of war teams that at­tended the event also ob­served a minute’s si­lence.

The club ex­tended its thanks to the tug of war com­mu­nity for its sup­port.

The team did Bosley proud on the day of the event, mak­ing the fi­nal of the 600kg com­pe­ti­tion where they nar­rowly lost to Oxney Vines Cross from Sus­sex by two ends to one – re­sult­ing in the sil­ver medal. Bosley then made the semi-fi­nals of the 640kg com­pe­ti­tion, los­ing out to Oxney Vines Cross again in the semi-fi­nals.

This Sun­day, the club will be com­pet­ing at the UK Club Cham­pi­onships, which are be­ing held in Bed­ford­shire, and will go on to com­pete at the Euro­pean Cham­pi­onships in Belfast in Septem­ber.
